Series #1 ($35 Value): Choices is a 4-week series about making the right choices every day.

Choices Overview

This series explores the 35,000 choices that students make everyday and how those decisions affect a person's relationship with God. Each week will take a look at a different character in the Bible, how they chose God regardless of their circumstances, and also how we can do the same thing in our lives.

Week 1: Choose to Serve
Bible:  Joshua 24:14-15
Bottom Line: The choices that we make determine whether we will serve God or the gods of this world. 

Week 2: Choose to be Pure 
Bible:  Daniel 1
Bottom Line:  Students can live a life of transformation by staying close to God’s word and refusing to conform to the ways of the culture.

Week 3: Choose to Speak Up
Bible:  The Book of Esther; Esther 4:13-14
Bottom Line:  God puts us in positions in order to use us to do His will.

Lesson 4: Choose to be Grateful
Bible:  Luke 17:11-19
Bottom Line:  Being grateful is not just a feeling but a choice that comes from understanding what God has done for us.

Series #2 ($35 Value): Slow Down is a 4-week series helping students learn how to develop the discipline of rest.

Slow Down Overview

Today’s youth are busier than any other generation before them. Gone are the days of leisurely summer afternoons and playing in the yard until the streetlights come on. In the hustle and bustle of their overscheduled lives, students need to learn to SLOW DOWN. It is important for not only their physical and mental health, but also their spiritual health.

Week 1: Time to Unplug
Teens are attached to their phones like Luke Skywalker is attached to his robotic hand. And while these devices can be incredibly helpful, it is important for teens to take a break every now and then. This lesson gives students good reasons to unplug, as well as practical ways that they can slow down and unplug for awhile.

Week 2: The Source of our Rest
True rest is more than just a Sunday afternoon nap or vegging out in front of the TV. Students need to look to God to be the source of rest rather than their pillows or their electronic devices. Based on Psalm 23, this lesson helps students understand that they can find rest - true rest - in the arms of the Good Shepherd. 

Week 3: The Discipline of Rest
God did not create us to run full-throttle 24 hours a day. In fact, God himself took a day to rest. And just like any other activity, teens need to discipline themselves to slow down and practice the art of rest. Using a variety of Old and New Testament scriptures, this lesson teaches students how to practice this very necessary skill.

Week 4: Following Jesus’ Example
Even though Jesus was fully God, he was also fully human. As a human, he got too tired and too busy at times, and sometimes Jesus needed a break from it all. Many times throughout the Gospels, we read stories of Jesus sneaking off to spend an evening alone in prayer. This lesson encourages students to learn from Jesus’ example by slowing down and getting away for much-needed prayer and rest.

Series #3 ($35 Value) - Dwell is a 4-week series about "dwelling" in God's Word.

Dwell Overview

Week 1: Dwell

Bible: Colossian 3:16-17 NIV

Bottom Line: When we look at this prayer from Colossians 3:16-17, we can see that Christs’ Word dwells in us…because CHRIST dwells in us.

Week 2: Filled

Bible: Colossian 3:16-17 NIV

Bottom Line: The message about Christ wants to fill and radically affect our lives. 

Week 3: Whatever

Bible: Colossian 3:16-17 NIV

Bottom Line: WHATEVER you do, do it in the name of Jesus.

Week 4: Thankful

Bible: Colossian 3:16-17 NIV

Bottom Line: Thank God. It’s basic, but important and we often forget to just say ‘Thank you, God’. 

Series #4 ($35 Value) - Set Apart is a 4-week series about being holy, or “set apart”, in order to identify with God and be different from the world.

Set Apart Overview

Week 1: Set Apart

Bible: Leviticus 20:26, 1 Peter 1:15-16

Bottom Line: God calls us to be holy, or “set apart”, in order to identify with Him and to be different from the world.

Week 2: Spoiled!

Bible: 1 Corinthians 5:6-7

Bottom Line: God calls Christians to be holy and to not allow the world to pull and manipulate them away from the holy lifestyle that He has called them into.

Week 3: Be Like Jesus

Bible: Philippians 2:1-13; Ephesians 2:10

Bottom Line: God Himself came down and showed us what it means to be holy, and by imitating Jesus we are letting God “chisel” us into the masterpiece of holiness He always intended us to be.

Week 4: Change the World!

Bible: Matthew 16:24, John 16:33

Bottom Line: God calls Christians to live holy lives, not just for themselves, but to be a light for the entire world to know Him and be holy as well.

Series #5 ($69 Value): Following Jesus is an 8-week series that challenges students to take the adventure of following Jesus.
