This video is part of a new 4-week series of lessons called “Where 2 Look”. This particular lesson guides preteens to consider where they look for strength.
As I watched the final draft of this video, I got choked up remembering some of the experiences and feelings I had as a preteen. It was the first time I really felt the weight of decision-making and saw the consequences of my actions. For preteens, it all starts with a question that everyone asks themselves in one way or another: “Where do I look?” Later in the lesson, by the way, there’s a second video showing what would happen if the main characters in the video looked to God for direction and strength instead.
We are happy to release “Where 2 Look” this week, after months of work. We believe it has the power to help preteens discover why they should decide to should look to Jesus for strength (Lesson 2) and direction (Lesson 1). In Lesson 3, preteen discover that when they mess up, they can look to Christ for forgiveness. And in Lesson 4, preteens are taught the importance of REMEMBERING to make a conscious effort to think about where they look.
The whole series is designed to assist you as you help the preteens in your group take some of their first steps into ownership of faith. As they decide one of the most important things in life: Where 2 Look.
By the way…it’s our first series in a new and improved format that we think you’ll love!
