Slow Down Series Overview
Today’s youth are busier than any other generation before them. Gone are the days of leisurely summer afternoons and playing in the yard until the streetlights come on. In the hustle and bustle of their over-scheduled lives, students need to learn to SLOW DOWN. It is important for not only their physical and mental health, but also their spiritual health.
Week 1: Time to Unplug
Teens are attached to their phones like Luke Skywalker is attached to his robotic hand. And while these devices can be incredibly helpful, it is important for teens to take a break every now and then. This lesson gives students good reasons to unplug, as well as practical ways that they can slow down and unplug for awhile.
Week 2: The Source of our Rest
True rest is more than just a Sunday afternoon nap or vegging out in front of the TV. Students need to look to God to be the source of rest rather than their pillows or their electronic devices. Based on Psalm 23, this lesson helps students understand that they can find rest - true rest - in the arms of the Good Shepherd.
Week 3: The Discipline of Rest
God did not create us to run full-throttle 24 hours a day. In fact, God himself took a day to rest. And just like any other activity, teens need to discipline themselves to slow down and practice the art of rest. Using a variety of Old and New Testament scriptures, this lesson teaches students how to practice this very necessary skill.
Week 4: Following Jesus’ Example
Even though Jesus was fully God, he was also fully human. As a human, he got too tired and too busy at times, and sometimes Jesus needed a break from it all. Many times throughout the Gospels, we read stories of Jesus sneaking off to spend an evening alone in prayer. This lesson encourages students to learn from Jesus’ example by slowing down and getting away for much-needed prayer and rest.
Choices Series Overview
This series explores the 35,000 choices that students make everyday and how those decisions affect a person's relationship with God. Each week will take a look at a different character in the Bible, how they chose God regardless of their circumstances, and also how we can do the same thing in our lives.
Bible: Joshua 24:14-15
Bottom Line: The choices that we make determine whether we will serve God or the gods of this world.
Week 2: Choose to be Pure
Bible: Daniel 1
Bottom Line: Students can live a life of transformation by staying close to God’s word and refusing to conform to the ways of the culture.
Week 3: Choose to Speak Up
Bible: The Book of Esther; Esther 4:13-14
Bottom Line: God puts us in positions in order to use us to do His will.
Lesson 4: Choose to be Grateful
Bible: Luke 17:11-19
Bottom Line: Being grateful is not just a feeling but a choice that comes from understanding what God has done for us.
