Student ministry has changed a lot over the last eight years, so why shouldn’t your resources? We have put a fresh face on all of the digital and physical resources of The Thread: Discovering the Thread of the Gospel Through the Big-Picture Story of the Bible. The team also went through this 52-week downloadable Bible study to ensure that the same lessons you love and trust are built for today’s students. We’ve tossed out the dated material, cleaned up some previous grammatical errors, and made a better version of one of our most popular year-long Youth Ministry Bible studies! 

Purchase The Thread and learn about God's story and how He wove His thread of love through every page.

The Thread: Discovering the Thread of the Gospel Through the Big-Picture Story of the Bible

Move beyond the fun and games and teach with resources that are centered in God's Word and draw students closer to God. The Thread walks through the story of the Gospel through Scripture in four main parts, each with 13 lessons: 

  • Beginnings 
  • A People Rise, A People Fall 
  • The Gospel Come to Life 
  • The Gospel at Work 

Do your students really have a grasp of the narrative of the Bible? Further, do they really understand the Gospel—and that the Gospel literally courses through the entire narrative of the Bible?

The Thread is designed to accomplish two simple things: 

  1. Your students will learn the big-picture story of the Bible. So many teenagers simply don't have a grasp of the narrative of the Bible—key characters, key events. Few teenagers understand how these elements fit into the story of God and His people. The Thread changes this.

  2. Your students will learn what the Gospel is and how it literally courses through the narrative of Scripture. Not only will your students learn the story of the Bible, but they will see that it is a story of unfailing love, as God seeks from the beginning of Creation to draw humankind to Him through the grace of the Gospel. The Thread will teach your teenagers God's story. And it will teach them how God wove His thread of love through every page of it.

Tracing The Thread: A 52-Week Journey Through the Story of the Bible

Tracing The Thread: A 52-Week Journey Through the Story of the Bible is a daily devotion for teenagers that teaches them the big-picture story of God's Word from the beginning to the end.

The Bible. It’s God’s primary way of teaching us about Himself and His ways. But if we’re honest, the Bible can be confusing at times. Especially for teenagers. Part of this is the cultural and historical barrier; it was written a long time ago, in another language, in a culture very different from ours. But maybe the main reason the Bible can be confusing for teenagers is that they don’t truly understand how it works.

They don't get that it's a story. But when they grasp this concept, it changes everything. 

What's Included:

  • Weekly memory verses that tie the Gospel to the big-picture story of the Bible 
  • Icons that help teach God’s attributes to teenagers as they encounter them 
  • Questions and prompts to help teenagers apply the truths of what they’re learning
