WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE?

We often talk about the WHAT we should believe in church. We talk about the WHO we believe in. We even sometimes address the WHERE to find our beliefs (in a correct reading of God's Word). But how often do we discuss the WHY of what we believe? Thus, in January and February, Doer Groups will be spending our Sunday evenings addressing the questions: Why should we believe in God? Why should we believe in sin? Why should we believe in Jesus? and more. As adult leaders, my hope is that you will make an effort to answer these questions for yourself, because your voice is as important as a youth pastor's, a teachers, or anyone else.

Suggestions for Preparation:

  • Make sure to spend approximately 1-2 hrs in preparation each week. I'd encourage you to do more, but that is up to you. Please try to do at least 1 hour of preparation.
  • Don't prep on Sunday afternoon the week of. You will not be ready.
  • I make many spelling and grammar mistakes. Sorry.

THE STATIONS

For the majority of our time, students will be broken into three groups by grade: 7th and 8th; 9th and 10th; 11th and 12th, and will cycle between three half-hour-long stations.

 

ACTIVITY (30min)
This will be a time of fun and interaction. It will be a sport, a game, or some form of action that brings students together and allows them to enjoy their evening.

 

QUESTION & RESPONSE / PRAYER
Designed to help students grasp what was learned from the main teaching. It will also be a time where students in each group will pray for each other and specific requests each week.

 

APPLICATION

Learning about God and his character is only good if we find ways to use it. Thus, this section will be finding creative ways to apply scripture the lives of the students.
