WEEK 1: THE PLAN ALL ALONG
Bible: Matthew 1:18-2:23; Genesis 3:14-15; Ephesians 3: 8-11; John 3:16
Bottom Line: The story of Jesus’ birth demonstrates His great love for us. Through this story, we can see how Jesus was part of God’s plan all along.
WEEK 2: SO MISUNDERSTOOD
Bible: Matthew 2:1-16; John 1:9-13; Psalm 9:10
Bottom Line: The most important life question is simply, “Who is Jesus?”
WEEK 3: CHANGE IN AN INSTANT
Bible: Acts 9:1-22
Bottom Line: The decision to follow Jesus is not a group decision but a personal one.
WEEK 4: THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
Bible: John 16:7; Matthew 27:50-51; Acts 10:44-45; Romans 8:10-17

Kept youth engaged
The concept of using social media to teach details of the Christmas story was a hit with my small youth group. Each one of them got involved with the storytelling and enjoyed the process. There was a lot of text to read in the lesson, but I was able to modify it for my short-attention middle schoolers.
