Gifted For Others
Note to the Teacher
The activity this week is fairly lengthy, so make sure to plan ahead. Some students may be amazed at how accurate the inventory is and others, not so much – but be sure to celebrate them all!
Times are based on a 60-minute lesson period but can be adjusted as is necessary.
1. Ice Breaker:
Ask students to think about random talents they have that they could demonstrate.Can anyone say the alphabet backwards?Is anyone double jointed?Can someone do a back handspring or rub their head while patting their stomach?After sharing the weird ones, ask students to share two other things they are good at. Then use these questions to debrief:
2. Read Scripture & Discuss
Read 1 Corinthians 12:1-11
3. Activity & Discussion - Spiritual Gift Inventory
Take this lesson to the next level by getting students involved using the activity Spiritual Gift Inventory from the Youth Worker Collective (https://youthworkercollective.com/using-spiritual-gift-inventories-with-youth/) .
Close in the manner that is typical for you. Consider taking joys/concerns from the students, then ask for a volunteer to close in prayer.
