Resources for Your Journey with Jesus

Youth

Throughout the year we move through different topics designed specifically for students in middle school and high school. Both groups will move through the same themes but with different age-appropriate teaching. Each series will have different lengths but usually last from three to five weeks. We’ve assembled a list of resources for youth and parents who are interested in going deeper into the truths we’re teaching. Check here regularly for updates.

 Bible Project: Our Collective Identity

What is God’s picture of an ideal humanity? In this podcast episode, Tim and Jon look at Genesis 1-2 and talk about how God makes one humanity, divides them, and purposes for them to be one again.

Visual Commentary: Psalm 8

Psalm 8 is a beautiful meditation on humanity’s place in the cosmos and the purposes of God. The poem is clearly based on the portrait of humanity found in Genesis 1:1-2:3, and it explores the themes of the image of God and humanity as God’s co-ruling partners in the world.
