Creative Bible Lessons on the Trinity
Creative Bible Lesson on the Trinity is a curriculum tool and resource for youth workers and youth ministries that looks at the Trinity. This is not an easy topic to teach or understand and this curriculum tries to use a variety of teaching approaches and tools to talk about the Trinity with youth. The twelve sessions cover a variety of aspects of the Trinity. The curriculum could be used as a series or independently as it does a good job of looking at the character and nature of God. Creative Bible Lessons on the Trinity would probably work best with smaller groups (such as Sunday school or a small group Bible study), especially if you intend to go through the who book. It might be too deep for middle school youth, but could also serve as a great introduction. Like all youth ministry curriculum there is more here than most youth workers would need for a youth ministry program, and it is certainly not a perfect tool, so its important to plan, prepare and choose the pieces of each lesson that best fit your context. I would recommend this curriculum for youth ministries looking for a good, fairly easy to use resource on the Trinity.
