This 4-session series will help students envision what an encounter with God might look like. It also challenges students to express their love for God in in the midst of an encounter. Finally, students are challenged with not keeping these encounters to themselves, but also taking them to their schools, cities, and the world. We will walk through different encounters that people had with Jesus, as well as Psalms, and specifically move students toward expecting encounters based on what Scripture says.
"Who am I?" This is a question that everyone wrestles with. But the question is one middle school and high school students may struggle with more than anyone. Therefore, this small group study asks the tough questions, gets students thinking, and ultimately points them to their true identities as found in Jesus. The goal behind this small group curriculum is this: that students would have a better understanding of their identity, which will then have an effect on how they live.
The topics of the three weeks are as follows: Week 1: I Was Week 2: I Am Week 3: I Will Be
We see in Scripture that there are spiritual disciplines to help us grow closer to God and further away from the world. These disciplines can seem intimidating, especially when we are not sure how to perform them exactly. This four-week series will lead students into a better understanding of four spiritual disciplines and the why and how of participation. These disciplines are meant to bring us closer to God and build a stronger faith and relationship with Him. Our participation in spiritual disciplines will help us unplug from the world and minimize the distractions we face continuously.
