Discuss it! The effects of sin

This Sunday the youth will discuss sin and God’s good news during Sunday School.  The reality is that sin corrupts all of creation, but God plans restoration.

You have the opportunity to continue the discussion at home.  Take some time to look over this discussion sheet and discuss it with your teen or pre-teen.  You can get into deep discussion about why we so often play the blame game, how God’s plan solves sin, and what he is calling you as a family to do about it now.

Discuss it: God created all things good.

On Sunday, Sep. 2, students will explore what the Bible has to say about Creation.  The Bible makes it clear that God created all of this world as “good.”  When it came to people, God declared us, “very good.”

We may know this, but we often fail to connect this truth with daily living.  Middle and high school students often struggle with their identity and dislike their personality, physical traits, or social connections.  But God created them very good!

We are giving you a discussion sheet to connect over this topic of God’s creative goodness.  Take some time to talk it over this week.

Also, don’t forget to have a family devotion for this week’s Connecting with the Real God topic.  Click here to learn more about that:
