Publisher's Description

The Winter quarter of BL4Y explores Mary's joyful acceptance of being chosen to give birth to God's Son, as well as taking a look at Elizabeth's affirmation of the announcement, John's mission as forerunner of the Savior, and the familiar story of Jesus' birth. Other units will emphasize praise from and for God's Creation and the birthing of a new faith community with Jesus as its foundation.

Bible Lessons for Youth is a comprehensive 6-year Bible-to-life curriculum that helps teens apply the Bible to their real-life. Its teacher-friendly format is built around a step-by-step sequence with thought-provoking activities designed to help youth understand Scripture and apply it to their individual experiences.

The Leader Guide makes teaching Bible Lessons for Youth easy with each session broken up into small segments. Complete Scripture texts are printed in all books. (No need to pause while everyone hunts for the appropriate verse.) At any time during the quarter you can refer back to the convenient Overview section found at the front of the guide and also take a moment to read the Teaching Tools article provided at the back of the guide. Don't forget to check out the Out and About activity that will allow your students to take what they learn in Sunday school outside the classroom, enhancing their faith journey.

Psalms, Luke, Galatians
