Welcome to the second week of this 13 week series of lesson ideas created for teens! These are written by my daughter. She is teaching the teen girls on Wednesday evenings. This week she had a couple of experiments that were fun and educational.
When I think about challenges from my teen years, I
definitely look back and reflect on how hard it was to let my light shine. At
school I was surrounded by a lot of non believers or people who were believers,
but were also too scared to let their light shine. As a teenager, it was just
too hard to be different. More times than not I chose the easy way. With all
this in mind, I knew I had to teach a lesson on letting your light shine.
We spent a lot of time in this lesson discussing why we, as
Christians, are compared to light and what that really means.
As you prepare any lesson for teenagers think about what
props you could incorporate and specific questions you could use to guide class
discussion. Teenagers love to talk, so give them opportunities to!
After we discussed Christians as light, we read about what
the Bible says about this.
To end the lesson, we did a group activity that we used to
guide some additional discussions. This activity also made the lesson
applicable to their lives and gave them something to think about.
