Teenagers today are a lot different than teenagers from 20, 10, or even five years ago. As teen culture changes and evolves, the way we present the timeless truth of the Catholic faith needs to evolve, as well. Life Support resources are responsive, innovative, and engaging tools that empower a team of Catholic adults to accompany young people as disciples. Whether you have large group gatherings, small group ministry, or a mix of both, Life Support provides your parish with three unique sets of resources every subscription year, offering your team the tools you need to lead teenagers closer to Christ.
LIFE NIGHT SERIES
Teenagers engage with stories and narratives; each Life Night series provides a thematic approach to a particular topic within our Catholic faith over four sessions. This format allows your group to really dive into specific topics, engage them, and grow with them. Every Life Night series comes with intentional graphics that help amplify the content for a visually driven generation.
We want the Word of God to come alive for teenagers. Summit is a lectionary-based discipleship group that focuses each session on the Sunday readings for that week. These short yet impactful small group sessions allow teenagers to engage with God’s Word while preparing for the Sunday liturgy, all while journeying as disciples with a group of their peers and two adult leaders.
LITURGY PLANNING GUIDE
Life Teen is a Eucharistic movement — we believe that without a solid liturgical foundation for teens, even the best youth ministry will not be successful. The Liturgy Planning Guide offers music and homily suggestions that will help you offer liturgical experiences that engage teenagers and help draw them into the divine mystery of the liturgy.
As teenagers mature in their faith, their needs change. Unleashed addresses the needs of evangelized teenagers that are looking to go deeper. As a small group resource, Unleashed allows a community of teenagers to journey together as they grow as disciples and evangelists and provides small group leaders with all the activities, talking points, and discussion questions they need for a faith-filled small group experience.
The world of a teenager is noisy (and let’s be honest, our world is, as well). Taking teenagers away on retreat is a powerful way to help them focus on Christ. Life Teen’s retreat resources provide all the content you need for a great weekend — the only thing you need to provide are the snacks, small group leaders, and the sacraments.
