About #JesusStrongYouth

Caring-for students by offering Hope

Matthew 9:36
"When He saw the crowds, He felt compassion for them, because they were weary and worn out,  like sheep without a shepherd." 

Connecting-students to God and one another

Acts 2:42-47
"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.  Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.  All the believers were together and had everything in common.  They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.  Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."

Communicating-God's truth in love with students

Ephesians 4:15
"But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head  — Christ."

BIG Questions for Parents....

Lesson (Big Idea):
At some point in our lives, we’ll all have to come to a pretty big decision.  That decision being who is Jesus?  Some of us may think he’s just some guy, others don’t think he existed at all, while many see Him as the King of Kings.  Jesus has a lot of things to say about himself in scripture.  In our last week of our “Jesus is” series, we’re discussing what Jesus meant when He says, “I am the true vine.” In this passage, Jesus describes himself as the vine, and His disciples as the branches.  He tells them to remain in Him, so that they can bear much fruit.  It’s crucial that as Christians, we remain in Him by following His commands.  In order for us to bear fruit, good outward actions that result from the heart, we must be connected to Jesus, the vine.  At times, we may try to bear good fruit by living apart from Jesus.  We try to serve, love others, and make disciples when we’re not connected to the vine.  While we may try to do this, we won’t be able to bear good fruit.  We must be connected to Jesus by following His commands, connecting with Him daily, and loving Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Students will be able to explain what Jesus meant by “I am the true vine.”  Students will also be able to stay connected to the vine each day by reading scripture, singing praises, prayer, and service.
