Today’s faith and biblical illiteracy in general and among those
who attend church and claim to be Christian is staggering. Some alarmists are
claiming that the Christian faith is in danger of becoming extinct. We can no
longer rely on culture to support the passing on of faith in Jesus Christ to
the coming generations.
The Basics study is not a quick fix to this situation. It is a handcrafted tool that when used by compassionate, caring, and committed adults, will ignite their imagination for God, the Scripture, the faith community, and living a transformed life. The Basics will likely raise more
questions than it answers, and that’s intentional. Don’t feel the need to make
sure all the loose ends are tied up at the conclusion of your youth gathering.
Allow your teens the opportunity to leave with ideas and truths on which to
reflect and wrestle as they use the daily devotionals provided in the Groove: The Basics Student Journal.
The Groove Bible study series
invites teens to learn the essentials of their faith, own their story, and
engage the world in serving Jesus. Each topical study consists of four weekly
sessions that are easy to lead and relate to life issues teens face. With up to
48 weeks available, Groove is great for Sunday and
mid-week gatherings for both large and small groups as well as retreats. The
leader guide contains everything needed to lead teens through a Groove study, including teaching outlines, leader notes,
Bible background, reflections, and parent communication.
