The letter to the Philippians was one of the last epistles that Paul wrote.

Series #4 ($35 Value) - Summer Olympic Games is a 4-Week series that uses the "sports" and "training" metaphors of the New Testament to help students grow in the faith.
Summer Olympic Games Overview
The 2016 Summer Games are around the corner! Each week students play a fun "summer olympic game" that sets up the message.
Throughout his Letters, the Apostle Paul uses athletic imagery to describe the Christian’s walk with Christ. He does this to encourage us to be disciplined in our faith, to persevere during hard times, to work together with fellow believers, and to keep our eyes on the prize. This series uses the sports metaphors of the New Testament to help students grow in their faith.
Lesson 1: Self-Discipline
Like an athlete training for the big game or race, a Christian must be disciplined in their walk of faith. This lesson will show students what this training consists of.
Bible: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Lesson 2: Teamwork
An athlete, even one in a solo sport, needs the support of others to be successful. In the same way, Christians cannot go it alone; we need each other for help and support.
Bible: 1 Corinthians 12:12-32
Lesson 3: Perseverance
Being an athlete means doing the hard work even when it’s not fun. In the same way, being a Christian often means staying disciplined and working hard, even when it’s not fun or convenient.
Bible: Philippians 3:10-14; 4:13
Lesson 4: Focus
If an athlete wants to win, they must keep their eye on the prize. In the same way, a Christian must maintain a singular focus on the prize (a closer relationship with Christ).
Bible: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Week 4 – When and where should we worship?
Bible: John 4:19-24, 1Corinthians 6:19, Hebrews 4:14-16, Hebrews 13:15-16, Exodus 3:1-6

This series answers these questions and more: Why is it important to choose good friends? How do you choose good friends? How can you influence your friends?
Week 1 – Choosing the Right Friends
Bible: Proverbs 18:24, Proverbs 12:26, Matthew 15:14Bottom Line: Everyone cannot be your friend.
