In January we launched Volume 1 of our elements Bible study curriculum. It represented the first 5 of the 25 studies that will eventually make up the line. We followed that up with elements Volume 2 in March.
We're super excited to be launching elements Volume 3 today!
elements is all about helping you teach your students the basics of their faith. We all want our students to live a vibrant faith life. It's hard to do this if they don't have a full picture of what they believe. elements takes 25 foundational concepts of our faith and looks at each concept through a really unique framework. Each study looks at one of these key concepts--concepts like God's Mission, God's Love, the Salvation, Discipleship, and many more--in three lessons. Each lesson works like a "lens."
- The first lesson looks at the concept through the lens of God's character.
- The second lesson looks at the concept through the lens of the Gospel.
- The third lesson looks at the concept through an ultra focused lens of practically living out the concept as a 21st Century teenage Christ-follower.
Currently, we have 15 of the 25 studies available! Between volumes 1, 2, and 3, you can teach your teenagers any one of the following concepts:
- God's Love
- God's Judgment
- Holy Spirit
- God's Word
- Spiritual Gifts
- God's Glory
- God's Kingdom
- The Church
- God's Mission
I'm pumped. I love what this line of Bible study represents for your teenagers. I love that you'll have the chance to really help them focus on the essentials of their faith.
As much as anything, elements also reflects the strong relationship you've allowed us to build with you, the youth workers who make up the ym360 community.
The commitment to craft a curriculum that teaches these foundational truths started with you. We heard you telling us over and over that you want more for your students when it comes to leading them deeper in their relationship with Christ. You told us you'd love some help teaching core truths in a way that was deep, but still easy to teach, solid but still engaging and interactive. We feel like elements is all of these things and more.
The feedback so far has been so, so positive. We love hearing from you about the great discussion and times of Bible study you're having with your students using elements. So, we're excited. And we think you will be too.
As we continue to roll out content, feel free to go check out elements for yourself.
