Tweeting #Jesus The New Testament Epistles About this Life Night This Life Night focuses on the message of hope and encouragement found in the Epistles. Teens will learn more about the call to preach the Gospel with their lives – making sure that they are living out what they profess to believe. The Life Night starts with a small group building challenge where groups will have to rely on the written instructions of one of their team members to build a simple block structure. The Proclaim will break down the topic by exploring some of the main themes of the New Testament Epistles. During the Break, teens will get into small groups and examine some of the New Testament letters. They will then write a letter of their own to encourage their peers in the faith. The night ends with a few teens sharing their letters in the large group Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to introduce teens to the New Testament Epistles and explain why they were important to the early Church and are important to our faith today. It will challenge teens to imitate the boldness of the writers in their own communication with others.

The New Testament Epistles provide us with encouragement, and give us a model for what it means to stand firm in our faith and spread the Gospel. We must use the mediums of our time and culture to communicate the message of Christ to the world, especially to our peer group. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
