1. Opening Activity—an ice breaker type of activity, and often more than one you can choose or adapt.
2. Video Clip and Follow Up Questions—a 3-5 minute video clip designed to spark discussion, and we provide 5 questions to get you going.
3. Music—best to do your own. We provide 10 song titles related to the lesson and Scripture passage for this week.
4. Bible Study Guide—you get 3 more options based on the same topic and Scripture passage. Choose the one that's best for your group. Choose another option for a Friday night vesper program or Sabbath afternoon program if your church does that.
5. Application Ideas for Living Out this Lesson this Week—application should be only an afterthought or forgotten thought. Be sure to focus on living what you learned from Scripture this week.
6. Youth Leader Tip—a quick idea and cartoon that illustrates it for the youth leader to be a more effective leader.
7. A Bonus Each Week of the Month—1st week is Outreach Ideas; 2nd week is Teen Q&A; 3rd week is Teen Trends; 4th week is Resources; if there's a 5th week it's another Teen Q&A..
