We teach young people all about scripture, but at times when they bring up questions about how and why we do worship the way we do, sometimes we forget the importance of explaining those pieces to them. From the use of musical instruments, to multiple cups versus one cup in communion, women’s roles in the church, and so much more; young people want to know why we do the things we do, and they deserve to have it explained to them!
Using the book Renewing God’s People: A Concise History of the churches of Christ, I created a 14 week lesson plan. The teens have enjoyed the open discussions created through each lesson.
Each lesson includes:
~ A scripture to start the class with questions based on that passage
~ Notes over a time period in history: not heavily date focused, but focused on the actions of what occurred at that time.
