Faith in an Anxious World: A 4-Week High School Curriculum
We don’t need to look far to see that our teenagers are hurting.
Anxiety and depression are on the rise, dominating the ways young people talk about their generation. While adults are becoming more aware of these problems, we often aren’t sure how to respond. Parents, youth pastors, small group leaders, and other caring adults need practical, accessible, and trusted resources that bring transformation and hope to the teenagers they care about most.
A research-based resource for everyday leaders and parents
This 4-week curriculum series will empower you with language and tools to respond to young people in your care, linking anxiety and depression with conversations about discipleship and faithful living. Together you’ll reflect on New Testament stories, watch Jesus enter into anxious situations with his disciples, and explore:
Life in an anxious world. See and name the pressure that builds in and around us.
Life in a relational world. Build a circle of support for both good times and bad.
Life in a hurting world. Know when our feelings become more than we can handle on our own.
Life in a hopeful world. Recognize God at work in our anxious world.
Plus each session includes a daily prayer practice to help students take home all you’re learning together.
Every session includes:
Comprehensive teaching script
Video discussion starter
Small group leader guide
Printable handouts for parents and students
Leader reflection and tips for handling tough subjects
Copy-and-paste promotional materials
Social media graphics to promote your series
