Last week we published chapters 1-3 of our 6-week Bible study series for your youth while they are stuck at home due to Covid-19. We’ve heard great things from youth ministers across the country in how these downloadable resources have been instrumental for their youth during this time. This Bible Study series is written to be used as a group online. However, we know that many have students with limited technology and resources, so we’ve made the lessons editable, so you can easily adapt them to meet your students’ needs. Many students are now doing online learning for school, so we didn’t write these Bible Studies with you talking the whole time, instead they are written to engage your students in thought, conversation, reflection, and action. Click below to download chapters 4-6 of this 6-week study!
Did you use chapters 1-3 last week? How did it impact your youth? Let us know in the comments below how you utilized these downloadable resources, or how you modified them to make them your own!
Thank you to the contributors to chapters 4-6 of this online Bible study:
We’ve created a Pandemic Youth Week curriculum bundle that combines elements of both a summer camp and a youth week. Many youth are missing out on both of these due to cancelled camps and trips among other cancelled important events your youth would usually attend. We’ve written this curriculum such that it can be used in person while socially distancing, online, or some combination of both.
Holy Week is an important time in the Church. While we can’t be with our youth and families in person right now, we can still resource them on their personal spiritual journeys as we all journey toward the Cross this Easter. We’ve provided a Palm Sunday lesson for you and 6 daily devotionals you can send your students Monday - Saturday of Holy Week.
We are hearing from numerous youth ministers that during this season their plate is just too full. Caring for others is a ministry staple, but often it comes at the expense of caring for oneself. Self care for the Youth MInister is so important. If you don’t take time for yourself and your own relationship with God, not only will you suffer, but eventually your students will too.
