Note to the Teacher
This lesson will focus on our real identities and the impact of becoming known. As word spread about what Jesus was doing, He became more and more known, yet He remained true to Himself.
|Time||Description of Activity|
1. Ice Breaker:
Prep: Go on YouTube and search for the most current viral video. Preview for appropriate content…and choose one that you can share. One that is really fun can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TP8RB7UZHKI&t=25s Share the one that you choose with the group.
Bridge: Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Jesus chosen returned during our generation? Would His return go viral?
2. Read Scripture
Jesus is becoming known throughout the land! The disciples’ travels, preaching His message, and all of the many miraculous events are working together to spread the good news!
Read Mark 6:13-16
4. Activity and Discussion - Healing Hands
Take this lesson to the next level by getting students’ eyes and minds engaged with some simple hands-on creative element and application discussion: The Face in the Mirror. Complete instructions on how to make this happen are at the Youth Worker Collective online at https://youthworkercollective.com/the-face-in-the-mirror-a-reflection-focused-lesson/
Be sure to send the picture to everyone that has a phone and encourage the group to pray for each other this week as they look at the photo. Close in the manner that is typical for you. Consider taking joys/concerns from the students, then asking for a volunteer to close in prayer.
