I have never found a Sunday School curriculum that I like so I make my own lessons plan worksheets each week. Far from the "bubblegum" Sunday School lessons frequently found at your local bookstore, these Youth Group Lesson plans handle serious doctrinal issues in a way that kids can understand.

These Christian Sunday School lessons are tailored to the Middle School age youth group but can be adapted and taught many ways (see my suggestions). Each has been taught and refined several times. Many include activities or games that help drive home the lesson. All include a leaders guide. The list is in no particular order.

While the Sunday School Lesson Plans are free to use, please respect my copyrights by leaving the credit statement on the sheet when you make copies for your class. I'd love to get your feedback (e-mail).

If supplies are needed for the lessons I have provided links to sources for those supplies for your convenience. I hope these lessons enhance your youth ministry experience.

Lesson Plan worksheet
A Pattern for Faith The goal of this Sunday School lesson is to instill the core belief that The Holy Bible is a trustworthy pattern for our faith. This lesson presents the internal-proof that the Bible is the unchanging, infallible word of God.

It is a one page, color lesson plan with a pre-lesson activity that makes the point. About 15 minutes for the activity and 15 minutes for the lesson. The activity takes some pre-planning.

Helping Christian Teens Share Their Faith

Here are several great methods I've used to help kids share their faith.  Sharing their faith is of intense interest to every Christian teenager I've met. Once they get started the results are startling.

 

466700: Evange Phobia: Face Your Fears & Fuel Your Passion, Student Devotional Evange Phobia: Face Your Fears & Fuel Your Passion, Student Devotional
By Greg Stier / Group Publishing

What frightens you? Heights, spiders, clowns . . . evangelism? Greg Stier helps teens and youth leaders overcome their phobias and cultivate a passion for sharing the gospel. You'll learn to face fear, pray for friends, and tell the story of what God has done for you. Includes DVD with four 6-minute presentations, and CD-ROM with discussion guides, promotional materials, and more.
 

How to Share Your FaithSharing Your Faith Without An Argument:

This method of evangelism was pioneered by Bill Fay. He now calls it: Share Jesus Without Fear. I teach this method of evangelism to the kids because it's very easy. Almost every time I teach it someone in the class surrenders their life to Jesus for the first time. We usually experience a jump in attendance as kids begin sharing and inviting their friends to the group. I suggest purchasing a quantity of the Bible shown in the left column for the kids to use as sharing Bibles.

I have tried to get permission to use the same title but no one ever calls me back -so here it is until someone asks me to stop.

Here is a link to Bill Fay's website: click here He is available for speaking engagements for very reasonable costs.

Click on the book in the left column to buy Bill Fay's book. I recommend getting Bill Fay's CD of his presentation. Click on the CD cover in the left column to order. It'll get you excited to teach the lesson and help your delivery of the material so the kids get excited too.

Here is a link to RBC Ministries to upload a free copy of Bill's booklet describing in more detail this method of sharing: click here. Order free copies of the booklet: click here.

Note: Of course this isn't the only method of sharing your faith, but it's one way, and it works. Different people have different sharing styles.

Wouldn't want to infringe on a copyright.)

Becoming A Contagious Christian:

This is a great course for teaching your whole church how to share their faith. I have taught is several times and someone comes to Christ in every class. I have also used this method successfully. It has just become part of my life. There is also a teens version.  There are many methods of teaching this course. I have done it as a Saterday event, a weekly small group, and a weekend retreat. It is easily adaptable and the video tape makes sure the teaching is top notch.

Here's another of my favorite evangelism training courses.

Again, someone comes to Christ in every class.


There are participants books and leaders guide.

37734: Becoming a Contagious Christian Student Edition  Participants Guide Becoming a Contagious Christian Student Edition Participants Guide
By Zondervan

Christ urged his disciples to focus on the unsaved, not keeping the existing disciples happy and content. While those things should come with any successful outreach, modern-day preservation techniques can sometimes crowd out the Great Commission's mandate. The system (from the book by Bill Hybels and Mark Mittelberg) has been completely reenvisioned for young people by Bo Boshers and offers Christians a hands-on way of developing their own style of evangelism. Becoming a Contagious Christian youth edition curriculum works with any size group and can be presented successfully in many formats. This is the participant's guide.

These crafts, games, outreaches and more will teach your students to be missionaries in their own neighborhoods plus get them involved with your church's missionaries, too.

 

Wearing Christian Themed apparel is a great way to share the Gospel message:

A recent survey by Christian apparel-maker Kerusso Christian Clothing found that:

98% of those wearing a Christian-themed T-shirt intend to grab the attention of non-believers.
58% of those said a non-believer actually asked them about the message on their shirt.
44% said they shared their faith because they were wearing a Christian-themed T-shirt.
7.4% reported that the person they shared with made a decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior immediately from that discussion.

Reach Out - Don't Freak Out

Toss around words like "evangelism" and "witnessing," and watch your teenagers run and hide. Many students are intimidated by the idea of sharing their faith with friends, but Greg Stier is convinced they don't have to be. In this four-week DVD curriculum, Stier uses his dynamic and edgy delivery style to help teenagers discover both the simplicity and necessity of sharing their faith. Reach Out will help you as a youth worker effectively address the topic of evangelism and spur your teenagers toward a greater passion for sharing their faith. This series covers four engaging topics for teenagers: Week 1: Just Ask; students will be equipped with specific questions and strategies for turning conversations toward God. Week 2: Sharing Your Faith With Style; students will see how God uses the combination of their personalities and their spiritual gifts to help them share their faith in a one-of-a-kind way. Week 3: Master the Basics; students will learn a simple approach to presenting the whole message of the gospel in a clear and compelling way. Week 4: THE Cause; students will be challenged to get involved in THE greatest cause ever, Christ's Cause of making disciples who make disciples. This series will help transform evangelism from something intimidating and scary into something instinctive, natural and rewarding.
