“I recently started as a youth pastor and Rooted’s curriculum and content has helped in centering our church’s youth ministry on the gospel. The youth curriculum as well as the family discipleship materials have been a valuable guide as we seek to partner with parents and equip our volunteer leaders. I will be using these resources for years to come!”

What will students learn from Luke? 

Luke was written to given an “orderly account” of the life of Jesus. Specifically, Luke wanted to show how Jesus is the Messiah, the culmination of God’s grand plan of redemption and the fulfillment of all the Old Testament promises.

1) God Keeps His Promises: Students need to know that God can be trusted to do what He says He will do. Often, students can struggle to trust God’s timing, His provision, and His goodness, but Luke shows us that God is always faithful to His Word.

2) God’s Kingdom Is: “Upside Down”In a world that prioritizes the wealthy, the beautiful, the successful, and the elite, Luke reminds us that God’s values are quite the opposite. His heart is for the humble, the lowly, and the poor. This encourages students to boast in their weaknesses and also to develop compassion for those on the fringes—the very people Jesus came to serve.

3) Jesus Wants Our Whole Hearts: Luke shows us what it looks like to follow Jesus, not just in word, but in deed. Students need to see that following Jesus is not just a box to be checked, but a way of life. This will affect every part of our lives: our spending, our relationships, our work, and the way we treat others.

What will students learn from Acts? 

1) God Sees Our Students: For all humans, but especially for modern teens, being seen and known fully while also being accepted and loved fully is a strong desire. Many of our students (and many adults, as well) want to be “liked” on Instagram, and yet we only allow others to know us there partially. The book of Acts shows us that God sees His people—that He loves us fully, even as He knows us fully. God has seen and continues to see all of our sins and shortcomings, and He continues to love us through Christ.

2) God Leads Our Students: One of the lessons of the book of Acts is that God leads His people, and He does the same for our students. Acts is full of examples of God changing plans and giving new plans to people for His glory and for their good. What that shows us is that God, who doesn’t change, continues to do this for us. God directs our steps, and as a result, we will never be led to a place that is outside God’s will for us, even if we’re led to a place that we don’t necessarily like in the moment.

3) God Provides for Our Students: As God leads us on the path He has set for us, He will always provide for us. Throughout Acts, God shows us that He is a God who provides for His people. Throughout all the chaos of the 28 chapters that make up Acts, God always gives His people what they need—not to obtain health, wealth, and happiness—but to accomplish His purposes. Just as He did for His people 2,000 years ago, He will continue to do the same for us today.
