TEACHING CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

Year 2 is designed for those who have purchased Year 1 of the Exclusive Youth Curriculum.

Just like year 1, the teaching series are in development and will be available one month in advance. Below is the release date and recommended month to each each series.

Use in January (Available Now)
YOU - A New Year’s series on how to be salt and light based on Mathew 5:13-16. A lot of us use the new year as a time to do some self-evaluation: What is life really about? How am I doing? What changes do I need to make? Why does all this matter, anyway? Kick-off the new year with our “You” series, and dive into a conversation about the life you really want to live.

  • Lesson 1: Who Do I Want To Be?
    Bible: Matthew 5:13-16
    Bottom Line: You’re most “you” when you’re who God created you to be.
  • Lesson 2: How Am I Doing?
    Bible: Matthew 5:13-16, Proverbs 27:6, Matthew 23:27, Matthew 26:75
    Bottom Line: To become the best “you,” you start with being honest about how you’re doing.
  • 
Lesson 3: How Can I Grow And Change?
    Bible: Matthew 5:13-16, Romans 8:15
    Bottom Line: Do the THINGS you need to do to make more space in your life for Jesus.
  • 
Lesson 4: What’s The Point?
    Bible: Matthew 5:13-16, John 15:5, John 15:10

    Bottom Line: We live as salt and light to help others enter the Kingdom of God.

Use in October (Available September 1)
FEAR - A series helping students overcome their fears. Heights…the dark…the bogeyman…everyone is afraid of something. What do you fear, and how does it affect your life? Let’s talk about these scary things as we lead up to Halloween: missing out (week 1), rejection (week 2), pain and suffering (week 3) and failure (week 4).

PROMISE - A Christmas series on the birth of Jesus built around the Old Testament prophecies about the Messiah. Jesus’ birth wasn’t God’s “new idea,” but was always part of God’s plan to redeem and restore the world. Hundreds of years before Jesus’ birth, God promised a savior would come to make all things new.
