Do today's teenagers lack commitment, dedication, and loyalty? We don't think so, but we do recognize the importance of effectively modeling commitment to early adolescents. The best way to grow in character is to observe others who excel in that area, and when it comes to commitment, God is the ultimate role model.
This 12-lesson edition of Grapple Jr. High will help young teenagers in junior high discover the depth of God's devotion to us. Despite our flaws and imperfections, God remains faithful and committed. Using the three series in this volume, you'll guide students through conversations built on several important truths:
•God's commitment will remain strong even in the End Times
•Jesus is committed to forgiving sins and giving second chances
•Teenagers can pursue commitment to their families
Along the way, your teenagers will grapple with such topics as what the End Times will be like, how sin creates separation from God, why Jesus is cool, why it's both important and beneficial to obey parents, and how to survive unfair family situations. Wherever your students are in their spiritual journey, they all have inquisitive minds and a need for Christ-centered biblical depth. Grapple will help your junior highers examine tough topics in meaningful ways so they understand and own their faith. Each week, students engage with memorable Bible passages and characters, grapple with the issues that come to the surface, and discover a path that leads them straight to Jesus Christ.
