We want all of our high school youth to be beautiful portraits of faith in God’s love. But teenagers? They want to express themselves their way. So, let them. Canvas, a collection of five four-week youth studies, is designed to empower students to lead the lessons themselves, which will not only draw students to learn about theological beliefs, foundational concepts, and their own faith, but will give them an opportunity to practice service and teaching others. 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. 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.
Canvas: A Portrait of Grace
Even when we don’t deserve it, God embraces us. This is the story of grace—about how God responds to our faults and failures with patience and generosity, offering us a new life and a chance to grow forward. In Canvas: A Portrait of Grace, your students will experience what it means to be people who are covered with God’s grace. Over four weeks, they will immerse themselves in the grace of God, explore what the Bible says, and then explore how the church has experienced and lived in God’s grace through the centuries. Throughout all of it, they will be reminded of the awesome gift that we are given through our relationship with God.
