Item description for A.s.k.7.7 Leader: Bible Study For Youth by Abingdon Press...
Overview Youth study Deuteronomy 6:1-9 (the shema-knowing God); 1 Samuel 1:1-18 (Hannah's plea-asking God); Luke 7:36-50 (the forgiven woman at Simon's house-believing in God); Luke 17:11-19 (the grateful leper-thanking God); and Acts 16:25-34 (Paul, Silas, the earthquake, and the jailer-sharing God's love with others). The key Scripture for the entire study is Matthew 7:7 ("Knock, and the door will be opened for you.") The leader's guide features an old-style (retro) science fiction serial (in five parts) about a group of futuristic and intergalactic youth who must perform tasks to open a series of "portals." This serial is humorous, but will convey clear teaching points. The leader's guide also provides scripts so that youth will be able to perform any or all of the five-minute plays. This program also includes a recurring photo (or video) scavenger hunt activity, in which youth (assisted by adult volunteers) look for doors that have a special signficance for each session. (For example, youth might connect a church door with "knowing God," a hospital door with "thanking God," the door of a run-down old house with "asking God," and so on.)
Publishers Description Explores the different ways we meet God, using the metaphor of a door. Youth study the shema: knowing God (Deut. 6:1-9); Hannah's plea: asking God (1 Sam. 1:1-18); the forgiven woman at Simon's house: believing God (Luke 7:36-50); the grateful leper: thanking God (Luke 17:11-19); and Paul, Silas, the earthquake, and the jailer: sharing God's love with others (Acts 16:25-34). The key Scripture for the entire study is Matthew 7:7: "Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you" (NRSV). Contains five sessions with program options for varied lengths and uses.
