Introduction
When we try to teach scriptural truths to our teenagers, are we giving them something they can relate to and understand? And are we teaching them in such a way that they'll personally grasp the truths they're introduced to?
It's essential that we help teenagers move from abstract thoughts of the Christian faith to concrete, real examples that help them see and hear and feel and smell and taste what it means to be a Christian.
PointMaker( Object Lessons for Youth Ministry can help you do just that.
Object lessons help abstract thoughts take shape in the physical world. Suddenly, through building walls with rocks, sheets, or paper, students understand that they can trust God's rock-like strength and protection. Through trying to play a game without knowing the rules, students understand how God's Word can direct them.
For youth to really understand what object lessons are teaching, though, they must experience the object lesson themselves. With PointMaker Object Lessons for Youth Ministry, your teenagers do not simply sit and listen to you talk. They're involved. They participate. They experience firsthand the truth being taught. They become part of the object lesson themselves so the spiritual truth can take shape and meaning for each person.
So whenever you want your teenagers to experience a spiritual concept in a concrete way, reach for these object lessons. Use them as discussion starters; foundations for Bible studies; or strong, stand-alone pointmakers. The indexes will help you choose an object lesson with the Scripture or the theme you want to focus on.
Also utilize the extension ideas provided with some object lessons to take the learninga step further. And watch for the "outrageous idea" icon. Surprise your students with these out-of-the-ordinary lessons that teach with items like Spam, mousetraps, or pets.
Teaching teenagers to grow in Christian faith can be a tough job. There are a lot of complicated concepts to teach-concepts that, for a lot of teenagers, seem to float above their heads. Use PointMaker Object Lessons for Youth Ministry to help students rein in those concepts and more clearly understand their faith.
