Series Overview

Lesson 1: Food
Bible Verses: Hebrews 5:12-14; 1 Peter 2:1-3; John 6:26-27; John 6:32-33 & 35
Bottom Line: If we only eat spiritual “junk food,” we’ll never grow.  If we nourish ourselves with good spiritual food and knowledge of God’s Word, then we’ll be on our way to a growth spurt!

Lesson 2: Water
Bible Verses: Jeremiah 17:13; Jeremiah 2:13; Psalm 36:9; John 4:10-11; John 7:37-39; Revelation 21:6
Bottom Line: We need water to survive, but not just regular water.  Jesus came so that we can have the only water that truly quenches our thirst, the living water that leads to eternal life!

Lesson 3: Exercise
Bible Verses: Romans 6:13; 1 Corinthians 9:24-27; 1 Timothy 4:8; Proverbs 24:5; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Philippians 4:13; Proverbs 31:17; Isaiah 40:31; Matthew 22:37
Bottom Line: We can learn to work out our bodies, souls, and minds to grow stronger in Christ!

Lesson 4: Rest
Bible Verses: Genesis 2:3; Exodus 20:8-10; Psalm 46:10; Psalm 23:2-3; Psalm 37:7; Psalm 62:1-2; Hebrews 4:9-11; Jeremiah 6:16; Matthew 11:28-30
Bottom Line: Part of having a growth spurt is giving our body time to rest.  In the same way, when we carry heavy burdens, God gives us rest for our souls.

Lesson 5: Freedom
Bible Verses: Romans 8:21; Psalm 119:45; Acts 13:39; John 8:36; Romans 8:1-2; Romans 6:7; Galatians 5:13; Romans 6:22
Bottom Line: Christ sets us free from the chains of sin.

Lesson 6: New Life
Bible Verses: Colossians 3:10; Ephesians 4:24; Romans 6:18; 1 Peter 2:16-17; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 6:4
Bottom Line: When we give our life to Christ, we become a new person. The old has gone and the new has begun!

Lesson 7: Transition
Bible Verses: Romans 10:17; Hebrews 11:6; Hebrews 11:1; Hebrews 12:2; Romans 5:1; Matthew 21:21-22; Luke 17:5-6; James 2:17; James 2:26
Bottom Line: As you transition in your journey of faith, you will grow from believing your parents and leaders’ faith into having a faith of your own!

Lesson 8: Wisdom
Bible Verses: Proverbs 3:19; Proverbs 3:15; James 1:5; Proverbs 3:5-6; Proverbs 2:6; Proverbs 1:8
Bottom Line: Wisdom comes from God, guides us forward on our journey of faith, and brings us joy!

I enjoy purchasing this curriculum for my students. The lessons give me a great base to build from or just use what is there if I am in a pinch. The graphics are top notch and games are provided if that's your ministry model. Always great stuff!!

The outlines, lessons, artwork with these weekly sessions are truly a God send for those of us with full time 'other than ministry' obligations yet wanting more for our students each week. Thank you for such quality products at very affordable costs.

This was our first purchase and I can’t wait to start using this on Sunday mornings! Takes a lot of pressure off of us for prepping each week and it is very spot on for the circumstances we are living through currently. Thanks for the special offer!!
