We get one shot at life, and we face a vital question that will determine our destination after death: Will we choose to receive the gift of forgiveness and eternal life that's available through Jesus? If we say yes, we'll spend eternity in heaven in God's presence. If we say no, we'll spend eternity separated from God. It's that simple and that crucial.

Use this series to spark your teenagers' thoughts on what happens after death. The End will help them discover that death, in fact, really isn't the end—it's just the beginning.

    By Doug Fields

    This is a 5 week downloadable message transcript series. Included in this file are 5 Microsoft word documents containing the full word-for-word message transcripts and student outlines.

    We live in a sex saturated society. It's not how it used to be, Ricky and Lucy sleeping in separate beds, clothed from head to toe. The world, specifically media has blown sex up so big that your students have no idea that there are any standards, no idea that there are any consequences with sex. Our youth of today desperately need to hear that there are consequences, that sex was God's idea, and He created it to be beautiful. Teach this message at least once a year, and relationships in your ministry will be different.

    Simplify Your Life (download)
    $20.99
    By Doug Fields

    If it seems like students are doing more today than they ever have before, it's because, well, they are. Everyone is busy and your students are no exception. In this series, Simplify Your Life, Doug Fields takes a look at how the abundance of things to do slowly saps away any time we may have to spend developing the most important relationship - our relationship with Jesus and the people most important to us.

    Subtitled Making Space for Greatness, this series will help you challenge your students in how they prioritize their time. And it will help them develop healthy priorities that will have a positive impact on their spiritual, school and home life (you'll probably learn a lot too since youth workers are crazy-busy and Doug taught this series to the adults at Saddleback Church).

    • Week 1: Friendship--By being a good friend
    • Week 2: Lifestyle--By living a good life

    By Doug Fields

    Life is an adventure full of surprises and challenges. And there are a couple of areas in life that if they aren't managed wisely, can steal the joy and abundance from the treasured life that Jesus promised to those who follow Him.

    Best Sex Ever (download)
    $27.99
    By Doug Fields

    Sex sells. Sex tempts. Sex lies. Sex glorifies. How can one thing do all this? In Best Sex Ever, Doug Fields & Shaun Blakeney tackle this oh-so-difficult but oh-so-important topic. Students are bombarded daily with messages about sex, about their own sexuality, and little of it borders on Truth. Rather than try and stifle their natural curiosity with a simple "Wait until marriage," this series digs in deep to reframe sex in light of God's design and purpose.

    The topics for this four-week series are:
    • Week 1 - Created In God's Image
    • Week 2 - God's Word On Sex
    • Week 3 - Sex Is So Much Bigger Than I Thought!
    • Week 4 - Messing Up To Making Up

    All My Belongings
    $34.99
    There's some serious power in the word "belonging." Cliques, clubs, teams... there is always some group or another that students are trying to belong to in order to be connected and find value. But what the world offers easily is ultimately fleeting. Only what God provides--and the belonging that comes from being in him--can truly satisfy.

    In this five-week super-series, you'll expose some of the world's more deceptive lies about belonging. On the flip side, you'll also give them a picture of how the church can be a place where everyone belongs.

    Happy (download)
    $41.99
    Guess what? Life as a follower of Christ isn't designed to be dull, boring, or sad. In fact, Jesus wants you to be happy! But God's definition of happiness is quite different from the way our culture interprets and promotes. God doesn't want us to focus our energy and efforts on pursuing happiness that is defined by our feelings and emotions. Instead, we can seek happiness that is experienced as we follow God's plan--and as we're fueled by God's power.

    This inspiring six-week sermon series will challenge your students to pursue God-style happiness through the Beatitudes from Matthew 5.

    That's the central message at the heart of this four-week sermon series from Jeff Maguire-youth pastor at Mariners Church in Southern California. Just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, we sometimes run away from God. We hide behind our excuses and our sins. We create distance in that relationship.

    As fallen humans, we often feel like we're missing something, that we're not good enough.

    Jr. High Basics of Faith (download)
    $23.99
    Studies have shown that 43% of all Americans who accept Christ as their savior do so before the age of 13. That means you've likely got a bunch of "new believers" on your hands. And even if you've got "churched" kids, they're at an age where faith is becoming an increasing part of their life.

    The Basics of Faith small group curriculum is designed to address those two issues as well as being a helpful refresher for kids who may have missed out on some foundational teaching. Each lesson tackles a different topic and focuses on giving students a Biblical understanding of the issue. Then they'll answer some reflective questions to help them apply what they've learned in practical ways.

The Sermon on the Mount is one of Jesus' most famous teaching moments, and his discussion on the Beatitudes kicked it all off!

    If your experience with the Beatitudes small group curriculum is anything like ours, you'll find your groups talking about issues that matter with a depth rarely seen in junior high. These lessons will give your students a Biblical understanding of each Beatitude and then follow up with reflective questions to help them apply what they've learned.

Designed to get your students talking about significant and real issues that they face everyday, you'll see your students begin to open up, share their thoughts and feelings, and witness the formation of deep and lasting friendships.

    Am I of value...…to my friends, to my family, and to the world?

    Women of every age and girls have a hard time finding and believing their value. From girlhood to womanhood, we are on a quest to have these questions answered with a resounding "yes!"

    Imagine sitting on a hillside in ancient Palestine as Jesus taught you and thousands of other people. But instead of hearing the predictable words that other religious leaders spoke, you were startled, shocked, amazed to hear this rabbi declaring bold truths with authority.

    The Basics

    Now: $6.00
    By Joshua Griffin

    The best coaches, the most effective teachers, and the strongest leaders all know this truth: If you want to build something that endures, you have to start with the basics.

    That idea applies to our spiritual journey, too. The Basics will help students explore, discuss, and apply some of the core truths of the Christian faith. The truths in this series aren't called "basic" because they're childish or simplistic; they're "basic" because they're foundational and essential to leading a life that honors God.

    Each week, your teenagers will explore key Scriptures that relate to these topics, discuss the significance of each biblical truth, and consider how it relates to their lives today.

    Upside Down
    Was: $29.99
    Now: $6.00
    By Chad Monahan and Kurt Johnston

    Stories can entertain and amuse. Stories can enlighten and inform. But in the hands of Jesus, stories can turn lives upside down.

    That’s what junior highers will discover as youth workers lead them through Upside Down. This video-based, conversation-driven series can be a powerful tool for turning students'’ worlds upside down--—and for helping them see that upside down is way better than right-side up.

    Jesus’ parables were earthly stories with a heavenly meaning, and one reason they remain so powerful today is because of how Jesus surprised his audience--—and surprises us. We think we know the story'’s point and how things will resolve--—but then Jesus flips things upside down. It isn'’t what we expected.

    There are lots of issues your students are coming face to face with, and we've picked three of the biggies for our focus in this series:

    • divorce
    • and evolution

    • Even if they don't experience them personally, their friends and fellow students will. Knowing what the Bible has to say about these topics and learning how to respond in love can make a world of difference.

    Jesus had this incredible way of taking something that everyone seemed to accept as "normal" or "right" and flipping it on its head. Power doesn't matter, Jesus said; if you have any influence, use it to help others. Your possessions don't matter, Jesus said; become obsessed with storing riches in heaven instead. Don't focus on your outwardly religious behavior, Jesus said; focus on your relationship with God.

    $20.99
    When it comes it to the health of a tree, there's more than meets the eye. If you remove that tree from its roots or if you stop paying attention to what happens underground, bad things happen. The tree begins to die.

    That truth applies to us, too. When we disconnect from God, we begin to dry out, to suffer, to move closer toward spiritual decay. What happens below the surface dictates the kind of life we lead and the kind of impact we have.

    This three-week series will invite your students to look below the surface of their lives, to honestly examine how they're doing, and to pursue the path of Jesus-centered living.
