Friends are so important to today's tweens, and the good news is that friendship matters to God, too Now youth workers can teach junior high kids how to have healthy relationships based on respect and acceptance, in ways that make sense for their lives. With David and Jonathan as models of a good friendship, and insights into the peer pressures weathered by Joseph and Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego, younger teens will learn how to build strong friendships and how to resist temptation by applying Scripture and understanding their identity in Christ. UNCOMMON puts it all together for youth leaders, with video teaching clips and reproducible handouts included on the DVD. Friendship has never been so easy
Becoming a stand-strong, clear-headed teen who is fearless of making healthy, positive choices-even if it means going against the flow-is a challenge . . . and that's an understatement! Especially for younger teens, swimming against the tide of peer pressure can be stressful and confusing. Now, with Friends and Peer Pressure, part of the Uncommon youth study series created by youth-ministry expert Kara Powell, you can help the young teens in your group deal with the everyday pressures that come with the territory of growing up. Twelve sessions of activities and exercises will get teens thinking about how to let God reign in their friendships and how to lead rather than follow. Plus, downloadable student handouts and additional options are available for every session-find out how inside!
