For the past two months I have been teaching the teen Sunday School Class at my church. I really enjoy the opportunity to share with the students and encourage them to grow in their relationship with Christ. One of the struggles I have faced is bringing the class to life on a Sunday morning as many blank and tired faces stare back at me. Through using some Bible study materials I already have and combining some of my own insight I have put together the lessons I have taught thus far.
This week however, I am beginning to use a new series through Lifeway Publishing called Fuel: Ignited. I am really excited to see how the students will respond to this really well put together study. There are multimedia videos and lessons that go a long. They aren’t the cheesy videos that some Christian organizations have sometimes been guilty of putting out. They are high quality with a very strong message.
This week we are going to be starting out this new series by talking with the students about the Biblical way to be a friend. I think this will have a great impact as living in small towns our students sometimes are just grouped with friends and really don’t actively think through what a Godly friend looks like and why they should seek Godly friends. I am very excited to teach this new material and will covet your prayers as I seek to communicate God’s word to our students!
