Things You Can Use / Dec 24, 2018
Note to the Teacher
The key emphasis for the lesson this week (from Luke 2) is that Jesus was filled with the purposes and desires of the Lord from a young age. The Ice Breaker invites youth to share if they have ever become lost from their families. The Discussion has students reflect on the story of a young Jesus (Luke 2) and ponder what they may be searching for, and the God who searches for them. The Activity challenges youth to think about the “who” or “what” they need to search for. Times are based on a 50-minute lesson period but can be adjusted as is necessary.

2. Read Scripture & Discuss
Our Scripture reading today will focus upon Luke 2. This is the only story of Jesus in the scriptures that takes place between the time of his birth/infancy and his public ministry as an adult.
Read Luke 2:41-52
4. Activity and Discussion:
Take this lesson to the next level by getting students’ hands and feet involved using the activity Hide and Search from the Youthworker Collective (https://youthworkercollective.com/hide-and-search/ ).
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.
