New Bonus Curriculum: Knowing Jesus!

A 10 Lesson Curriculum on Who Jesus Is

In this study, we will unpack both who Jesus is and why that matters for us. If Jesus is our healer, what does that mean for our pain? If Jesus is the risen Lord, what does that mean for our sin and suffering? If Jesus is God’s Son, what does that mean for our own sonship? Fundamentally, the reason this study matters for our students is because it is all about knowing Jesus, and knowing Jesus changes everything. In following Paul’s example, we, too, should seek to know nothing among our students but Christ and Him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), so that their faith may not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power (1 Cor 2:5). We can come up with the best studies, sermons, and small group times, but ultimately, it is only by knowing Jesus that our students will be changed.

Anxiety: Finding the Better Story

A 31-day Devotional for Teenagers by Liz Edrington

As a teenager, Liz felt overwhelmed by anxiety. Now that she’s a mental health counselor, she wants to pass on what she’s learned. With daily Scripture readings, breathing exercises, and additional mental-health resources, this little book offers you comfort and help in your anxiety. See how your anxiety fits into God’s big story—and learn how Jesus can bring you peace.

In the 31-Day Devotionals for Teenagers series, adults who care about young people look at what the Bible has to say about the everyday issues you face. Through personal stories and relevant examples, they show that Jesus brings hope for every challenge.

Liz Edrington is the fellowship groups and young adults director at North Shore Fellowship in Chattanooga, Tennessee
