Product Description

In Canvas: Holy Spirit, students will begin to understand the important role that the Holy Spirit plays in the Christian life every day. The four-session study consists of an Immerse Lesson the first week, followed by three more traditional lessons. The Immerse lesson provides a general overview of the topic; Lesson 2 focuses on Scripture; Lesson 3 focuses on Church History, and Lesson 4 focuses on how today's church views the topic.

The Leader will lead the first lesson which is very interactive so no lesson is included in the Student Book. The three traditional lessons can either be led by the Leader or by the students. The Student Guide includes information for Student Leaders with several options, plus a Leader devotional.

Each lesson is built around Kolb's Learning Cycle and moves students through five sections:

  1. Imagine - introduction to the themes with a fun activity
  2. Sketch - meat of the lesson focusing on the central ideas
  3. Reflect - time to digest and process what they have heard
  4. Create - puts knowledge into practice using creative activities and projects
  5. Exhibit - practice and reinforce what they've learned through the week

Publisher's Description

We recognize the challenges churches face in engaging high school teens in deeper faith formation. Made up of 5 4-week studies, Canvas will captivate your students as they experience and explore the theological beliefs and foundational concepts that ground their faith.

By working together to learn from history, tradition, and the Bible, students will uncover a portrait of God that will be an inspirational foundation to their own journey.

This undated resource is designed to empower students to lead the lessons themselves, thus drawing students to not only learn about their faith, but put it into practice by serving and teaching others.

Flexible to use as a continuation of confirmation, a small group resource, or student leadership resource. Canvas will inspire your students to paint the picture of their faith.

The Holy Spirit is often one of the least discussed aspects of the Christian life. Sometimes the Spirit has been misunderstood, and at other times the work of the Spirit can be confusing or so quiet that it feels imperceptible. In Canvas: Holy Spirit, students will begin to understand the important role that the Holy Spirit plays in the Christian life every day. In this four-week study, they will examine the coming of the Spirit in Acts, discuss the ways the Church has experienced and talked about the Spirit throughout the centuries, and reflect on the experience of the Spirit that they have had in their own lives. They will also learn about how the Spirit invites us to work alongside God for the restoration of the world.
