Exposed! (download)
$20.99
By Kurt Johnston

Any topic can be awkward to talk about if you don't have a good game plan. And fewer topics bring that discomfort into sharper focus than sex. The big S. "The talk." There are very few issues more daunting-especially if you're 12 and have just discovered your hormones.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, we decided to tackle this one head on. Kurt Johnston and the SJH crew have put together the Exposed! Super-Series to help you address the myriad of questions surrounding human reproductive urges.

Hmmm? (download)
$20.99
By Kurt Johnston

Today's young teens are forced to grow up faster than ever. So it's important to help them through tough issues with God's truth in their heart.

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:

  • homosexuality
  • 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.

And since everything you need to promote and teach these lessons is included, the Old Timers super-series is a great way to reshape your students’ opinions about the relevance of the Bible while saving you lots of prep time.

Flipped (download)

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.

Underground (download)
$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.

Snapshots (download)

That's the kind of big-picture perspective you'll get from Snapshots, a four-week sermon series highlighting four themes that will give your students a clear, accurate understanding of who Jesus Christ really is.
