Through the Old Testament, we find out why God made us and the world. But many youth leaders aren’t sure how to introduce these stories to their junior high students. Uncommon: The Old Testament, which begins with the story of Adam and Eve, can help leaders introduce tweens to our common history and purpose. They’ll examine how God created the world, how the first family was established and how sin entered the world. As they journey forward in time, they’ll learn about worship’s beginnings in the era of Noah and about the adventure of faith begun with Abraham and many other biblical figures: Joseph, Moses, Samuel, David, Josiah, Daniel and Esther.
Through 12 flexible sessions of Bible study, adaptable for groups of any size, junior high students will discover that the only requirement for being used by God is an open and willing heart. And the high-octane, kid-friendly activities will help youth leaders show—not just tell—the timeless truths of The Old Testament.
