    Middle School/High School Curriculum: Selfie Series

    Do you need a last minute lesson for your students at youth group or small group time?  This 2-week video and curriculum guide will lead your students through a fun, interactive and engaging small group time.  All you need is any number of students, a screen to show the video and about 30 minutes.

    A selfie is a picture that you take of yourself (with your camera held at arm’s length) with a camera or smartphone and every student is likely very familiar with them, whether they take them or their friends do, they are extremely prevalent in youth culture today, and only growing in popularity. By some estimates there were close to a trillion pictures taken in the year 2013 and up to 1/3 of those may have been selfies. With this idea in mind, why is it selfies are so popular? What do selfies say about us, those we surround ourselves with, and our relationship with God?

The messages during worship time will also feature stories and testimonies from speakers and students. Students will be challenged to identify and name their own stories, to identify parts of their story they want to make different going forward, and to allow God’s story to become the defining story of their lives.
     
  • The Art of Awkward Conversation
    The Art of Awkward Conversation

    Awkward conversations. We’ve all had them, and most of us cringe just thinking about them. Whether it's politics or family or social media, conversations can go south quickly. Thankfully, the Bible has something to say about this. Jesus found himself in quite a few awkward conversations, so we can learn how to navigate them with grace and humility by studying Jesus' tactics.

    In our current sociopolitical climate, it's obvious that we need to learn to talk to each other again. This six-session small group curriculum is designed to help you talk about awkward conversations - how to have them, how to move past them, and what God can teach us about grace in the midst of them. So, come on, let's talk.
