The Bible is a photo album, brimming with self-portraits of a God who wants to be known. God has put these pictures in the Bible to reveal his character. By examining them, we discover who God is and why he’s worth knowing better. And we discover something else: who he wants us to be. He wants us to copy his picture into our own character. Wild Truth Bible Lessons--Pictures of God 2 is a guide to 12 God-pictures taken straight from the Photo Album. They are active Bible lessons for junior high and middle school Sunday school classes or youth group meetings, each one based on one of the 50 pictures of God and presented energetically, relevantly, and scripturally in the companion student book Wild Truth Journal: Pictures of God. The lessons are loaded with off-the-wall and easy-to-do discussion starters, video ideas, scripts, games with a point. And, of course, Bible passages and studies that springboard junior highers from the abstract into the concrete as (open Bibles in hand) they explore the nature of God in a lively, relevant way, and then begin practicing in their own lives the traits of God.Here’s how the lessons are organized: * Picture Prep grabs your group’s attention to prepare them for what’s ahead.* Action Shot takes your students into the Bible to catch God in the act of revealing his character.* Self-Portrait explores the given aspect of God’s character...how it makes God just that much more awesome...and why it’s a very good trait for us to have, too.* Print It! challenges your students to print God’s picture into their own lives by living out his character in an immediately practical way.12 lessons

The Love of Money Is the Root of All Evil…The Bible tells us so. But we must also remember that Ignorance About Money is the Root of Much Misery…and Wisdom About Money Is the Source of Satisfaction to God!God has much to say about how we get, give, save, and spend money. (Source: the Bible, start to finish!) Money Talks – 10-session Leader’s Guide, CD-ROM, downloadable worksheets – provides youth workers with simple yet compelling biblical teaching on resources and responsibilities to share with students.American teenagers spend over $120 billion a year – about $4,000 each. Everyone who sells shoes and CDs, software and soft drinks, skateboards and stereos, knows this fact…and they all want their share. Yet while the marketers spend billions to shape our students’ money habits and values, the church gives our kids almost no guidance on the subject…except for an occasional sermon on giving. Money Talks provides the distillation of the Bible’s wisdom on the subject, aimed at high school students, but adaptable for use with junior highers.Money Talks is a much-needed resource for youth workers who work with teenagers absorbed in a materialistic culture or those who need practical, common-sense, biblical instruction on this universal topic. Perfect for youth group leaders, Sunday school teachers, and small group leaders!In this thoughtful, lively curriculum, study topics and application assignments are included. In You I Trust Getting, giving, saving, spending Give It Back Everything you’ve always wanted to know about tithing Funding Your Future How to invest Voting With Your Wallet Elect good stuff Debt Freedom Kick the habit and live clean Enough Less is more Mercy Money Set up a “mercy money” account Smart Spending Beating professional sellers at their own game Living on Borrowed Time Make a plan to get out of debt Stuff Accumulation swallows you up!

You know them as hilarious, boisterous skits that get kids involved, whether they're hamming up front, or in the audience cheering for the good guys, hissing the bad guys, and getting nearly as animated as the onstage actors. Better yet, these no-rehearsal skits are comic takes on 24 classic Bible stories, from Babel to Zacchaeus. Use these skits to take your students into or out of your Bible lesson -- for the humor never buries the central message of the Bible passage. Inside you'll find 12 Old Testament and 12 New Testament stories -- like these: - The First Tongue Twister (the Tower of Babel) - Josephine's Dream (Joseph and his brothers) - The Young and the Hairless (Samson and Delilah) - Dave, the Wave, and the Giant Kahuna (David and Goliath) - Dances with Lions (Daniel) - World Serious: The Empire Strikes Out (the temptation of Jesus) - Good Sam, the Levis, and Judas Priest (parable of the Good Samaritan) - Showdown at Tombstone (Jesus and the demon-possessed man) Unchurched teenagers who can't tell Samson from Solomon, or long-time youth group kids -- everyone will love not merely hearing or reading Bible stories, but doing them. Welcome to more than a year's worth of slapstick, pratfalls, and melodrama. These Bible-story skits are anything but solemn, but they'll make Bible stories memorable for your students.

Hmm. Teenage sexuality and God--in dramatic-sketch from . . .Isn’t that a bit raw? Maybe too real? (And dare we say it . . . kinda risky?)With Good Sex Drama, you and your kids will enter the complex worlds of 16 very human, very flawed, very real characters--all loosely connected to each other--and journey with them over the course of 24 sketches as they wrestle intensely with sexual topics of perennial importance to students, including:Sexual temptation The results of sexual brokenness Technical virginity Pregnancy Sexually transmitted diseases Sexual abuse Alcohol and sex Sexual addiction When role models fail sexuallyJim Hancock, co-author of the widely acclaimed Youth Specialties curriculum Good Sex, is also a filmmaker/script writer/theater expert, and here he unearths amazingly real characters who overflow with depth, rib-tickling humor, devastating heartache, and--true to life--don’t resolve their issues by the end of the sketches.Each of the two-dozen dramas can stand alone--or you can use them in a series over several weeks. Some are short, subtle monologues. Some are volatile, intense dialogues between two or more characters. And each sketch ends with a healthy dose of discussion questions that’ll get your kids digging even deeper into the topics at hand.And even if your group isn’t into drama--or you’re just not the dramatic type--you’ll get all the help you’ll need to pull off unforgettable performances. That’s because Hancock provides an extensive introduction, offering tips on presenting the sketches, discussing them, stagecraft, what to do if you stir up trouble, and resources and referrals for help with sexual issues.So whether you’re a youth worker, associate pastor, Sunday school teacher, small group leader, CE director, or volunteer, Good Sex Drama will prove a unique, exciting, laugh-and-cry-as-you-learn resource that engages students and gets them examining their lives and their souls while trying on the personas of some unforgettable characters.
