This is an extremely visual lesson for intermediate students using Matthew 7:13-14 as the basis for the message. The bad news of the Broad Way and its inevitable path to destruction is contrasted with the good news of the Narrow Way and its path to life. A large wall display is created as the gospel is plainly explained.
This single week object lesson demonstrates for children the beautiful change that takes place in a person's life when they become a Christian.

This lesson plan emphasizes the importance of God's Word and obedience to it, leading from this to the message of salvation. Using the various animals/insects and the Bible character(s) assosiated with them, lessons are learned from the actions of others and applied to the hearts of students. Salvation is obedience to God and therefore, this plan closes stressing the urgent need of salvation. Animals included are: moth, lion, snake, fish/whale, bear, donkey, pig, fish, raven, lamb, ant and grasshopper.

As the first session in the Heart Issues for Teens series, this study is adapted from The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. 10 reasons explaining the purpose of life come alive through active learning, by means of Bible research and thought provoking questions. This session is excellent for a class of young believers, but over 2-thirds of the material studied can relate effectively to any unsaved students. Covering approximately 4-6 class periods, this is an excellent way to encourage teenagers to study His Word and to become grounded in the grand purpose God has for their lives.
This session begins with a hands-on look at specific Bible references to roots and plants and how these apply spiritually to the Christian life. The importance of spiritual root development is stressed but it's one thing to know the importance of Bible study and quite another to actually do it! Therefore, practical aids, such as a Quiet Time Calandar, Bible Study Journal and more, are given to the students as actual ways to study the Bible are discussed. Give your students (and maybe yourself!) the tools they need to get a good start into developing a healthy root system planted deep in God's Word!
This session begins by focusing in on prayer as our form of communication with God. Students research Biblical prayers and look into the question, "Does God hear and answer every prayer?". They are taken step by step through a simple pattern for prayer and cover the varied answers God may give in response to their prayers. Many interactive activites help to illustrate the points discussed and the Heart Issue questions that are periodically asked, seek to apply what they are learning to their own heart and life.
Celebrate Easter with this lesson plan on the prophecies and fulfilments of the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The lesson begins with an interactive discussion on what prophecies are and then takes the students on a search for 12 Old Testament prophecies and the New Testament fulfillments of Christ's death and resurrection. Students discover who spoke/wrote the prophecies, the approximate dates when the prophecies were recorded and then create their own timeline leading up to the Saviour's death and resurrection. This is a very hands-on lesson and provides many opportunities to present the gospel while searching out this vitally important topic - the reason for Christ's death. The time frame can be easily shortened or lengthened depending on the needs of your class and can be used for either intermediate or teen students. Help your class discover the true meaning of Easter!

This lesson was developed for use during the Christmas season, but can easily be adapted for use any time of the year.
