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.

God's Extreme Makeover (download)
By Doug Fields

As fallen humans, we often feel like we're missing something, that we're not good enough. The world offers its answers in the form of cosmetic solutions-a new car, a new house or an improved physical feature. But God has a better picture of who you can be and it's one that can't be bought at any price.

Take your students on a discovery of the conflict between the new life and the old sinful nature in God's Extreme Makeover, a 4-part sermon series given by Doug Fields. While our culture tells us to change our outside, God points to the Fruit of the Spirit and tells us He will change us from the inside.
Jr. High Basics of Faith (download)
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.
Jr. High Beatitudes (download)
In eight short verses in Matthew 5, Jesus captures the characteristics and qualities of those he calls "blessed." He doesn't preach what should or shouldn't be done; rather, He lays out a plan for how to live a life that is honoring to God. 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.

These youth group Bible lessons and sermons will lead your students closer to Jesus.
