Hope lives, and that hope is personified in Jesus Christ. We can offer that hope to our world but we are also to help relieve the pain and suffering so prevalent in our world. So let's go on a journey together and take our children with us. A journey into the heart of Jesus. A journey that transforms hearts. A journey in which the words of God are proclaimed and the works of God are done. A journey of restoration.
Hope Lives, a five week series, is more than a group Bible study and devotional experience because it provides opportunities for students to take this heart-changing information and apply it. Youth apply what they learn though prayer, service, commitments, and relationships.
Use this series to encourage your students to develop a Jesus-centered, compassionate response to poverty.
Week 1: Poverty of the Heart
Week 2: Who Is My Neighbor?
Week 3: For Such a Time as This
Week 4: The Power of Prayer
Week 5: Be the Change
