Back to School Essentials Overview
Week 1: Paper
Bible: 2 Corinthians 5:15-17; Galatians 3:27-28; Romans 12:3-5
Bottom Line: Whether students are new to the building or returning for their last year in middle school, they should look at each year as a fresh start. In this lesson, we'll look at being "new creations" and how God gives us a new start.
Week 2: Lock Combination
Bible: Psalm 119:9-16; John 10:10
Bottom Line: Most students have a locker--some, this year, for the first time. Lockers store crazy amounts of stuff. There is even a company that will help you customize decorations for it! In this lesson we'll look at the importance of Scripture memorization, how it's different than cramming for a test, and a practical way your real locker can help.
Week 3: Schedule
Bible: Matthew 6:19-34
Bottom Line: Every student gets a schedule of classes. They want to see what they are studying, which teachers they have and who will be in class with them. This is a great opportunity for learning about priorities and time management. If they say Jesus is important, their schedule should reflect that.
Week 4: Map
Bible: Psalm 119:105-112; Exodus 20:1-17; Ephesians 4:29-32
Bottom Line: Finally, we'll finish with the map. From the new student to the 8th grader finding a room they've never had a class in before, almost every student carries a map with them at the beginning of the school year. We'll talk about how the Bible guides us in everyday life--even in junior high/middle school.
Middle schoolers are living between these two worlds. But what if we could help middle schoolers see that children actually have a better grasp of the Bible when it comes to creativity than most adults?!
There are lots of creative options and cool activities, which allows the leader to be creative and flexible. Creativinme will help students look at the creativity of God and see how God wants us to be creative.
Week 1: Creating Creativity
Bible: Genesis 1:1-2:25
Week 2: Living Creativity
Bible: Matthew 13
Week 3: Empowering Creativity
Bible: 1 Corinthians 12
Week 4: Needing and Growing Creativity
Bible: Genesis 1:27; Ephesians 4:15; Romans 8:11
Road Trip OverviewWeek 1: The Passengers
Bible: Mark 1:16-20
Bottom Line: Jesus invites us to be passengers on his road-trip.
Week 2: The Car-Sickness
Bible: Mark 2:1-12
Bottom Line: Jesus is the only one who can heal us from the sickness of sin.
Week 3: The Fork In The Road
Bible: Mark 14:32-36
Bottom Line: It’s normal to wrestle with the will of God, but in the end God’s will is always the best way.
Week 4: The Destination
Bible: Mark 15 & 16
Bottom Line: Jesus willingly gave his life to pay for our sins, and his resurrection gives us a new mission.
