Campaigners Lesson: Identity in Christ
A guest post written by Lauren Harrison, leader in Gig Harbor, WA
This Campaigner lesson focuses on the lies our high school friends believe or tell themselves, and how we can counter those lies with biblical truths.
We started the lesson by asking what kinds of things people struggle with, or lies we tell ourselves and may or may not believe. Repeating issues that came up were
- Negative self image
- Peer Perception/Likability
- Anxiety about the future, etc.
Then, a leader took a picture of each girl with their words behind them and was given the picture at next week's Campaigners. All of the papers were written anonymously. In addition, our leaders read the lies each girl wrote down and found an encouraging verse in the Bible to counter them. When they gave out the pictures, the verse was attached. Overall, this lesson was a really good way to affirm one another. Since each girl received a picture and a verse, it gives them something to take home and put somewhere where they can see it and read it every day. It is a simple idea, but highly encouraging and a great illustration to remind our high school friends of our everlasting identity in Christ.
