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 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.
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.
Despite all the challenges the pandemic has presented to youth ministries, it has also created an opportunity to allow youth more involvement in worship. Although youth sunday will look very different this year, it is a great opportunity to empower our youth to be leaders. Youth’s comfort and familiarity with technology make them a great resource for churches who are seeking to move their worship services online for the first time.
