Teaching Younger Youth?
There are resources for teaching younger youth available online or at the Presbytery’s Resource Center.
FAQ: Faithfully Asking Questions is based on actual questions posed by youth. In this quarterly curriculum, the answers to their questions come from Scripture, creeds, and the Presbyterian Study Catechism.During the 2010-2011year the focus is on questions about the Apostles’ Creed. This resource is available online from pcusa.org/webelieve or, you can borrow a hard copy of the fall quarter from the Resource Center. Each of the 13 easy-to-teach sessions suggests activities appropriate for the young adolescent age group.
For those who want a full-year, in-depth study as a preparation for Confirmation class, the “survey courses” are also available. At the Resource Center we have copies of the one-year survey courses of the Old Testament, the New Testament, “I Know My Bible,” (a one-year survey of the whole Bible,) and a study of Church history.
