Resources for Youth
First and foremost, I would like to encourage all of you to read your bible every day. There are some excellent bible reading plans out there and I highly recommend taking this opportunity to sitting down with God’s Word and reading for yourself. Here are four bible reading plans that I think are a great start.
One Year Bible Online – https://oneyearbibleonline.com/
Bible Study Together – https://biblestudytogether.com/chronological-cross-reference-bible-reading-plan-online/
I’ve been asked if there is a study the youth ministry wants everyone to do. I am hesitant to prescribe one study that all of you should/could do during this time. Below I provide several websites that your family can look through together and then choose a study that speaks to you. There are also plenty more websites that would be suitable for family bible studies. But, I do think this is a good start. Feel free to contact me with questions.
Website with bible studies including online studies:
RightNow Media – www.rightnowmedia.org all members of ICF have been given access to this fantastic resource site. This site has numerous bible studies for all ages! For parents, I would recommend Sean McDowell’s “So the next generation will know”.
Focus on the Family – www.focusonthefamily.com/family-time-during-the-coronavirus-quarantine/
The Bible Project – https://bibleproject.com/
Sean McDowell – www.seanmcdowell.org
Navigators – www.navigators.org
N.T. Wright studies – https://ntwrightonline.org/courses/ Paul for everyone. I think you would have to order the books online. There are bible studies for all of Paul’s letters to the early church.
