Faith Works for Junior High
Scripture- and Tradition-Based Sessions for Faith Formation
Making faith work for young people is a constant challenge. The 12 sessions in Faith Works for Junior High offer fresh and lively activities and strategies that make faith work for junior high young people. The one-hour sessions put young people in touch with topics such as God's word from the Old Testament, the person of Jesus, apostles then and now, the mystery of the Trinity, the importance of family, the meaning and importance of the Mass, friendship, the meanings of the liturgical seasons, justice and peace, the wonder and mystery of one's self, and careers and vocations.
The sessions contain attention-grabbers, learning experiences, service projects, prayer services, optional activities in case you have more time, and even suggested snacks that relate to the topic. Fourteen reproducible handouts are designed to enhance the young people's understanding of major concepts. A handy index of the session activities makes each activity readily available for use in a variety of youth ministry settings.
