In week one, youth pastors will be live teaching about unity and how we, as disciples of Jesus, are called to respond to a divided world. We need to be people who keep the main thing the main thing; choose both/and, not either/or; and love others the way Jesus has loved us.
Week two homes in on loving like Jesus by examining the famous parable of the Good Samaritan. We understand that real love takes action, crosses lines, and goes the extra mile.
During week three we’re tuning in to a conversation among some of our Switch students on the ever-divisive topic of politics. How do we navigate the tricky and treacherous waters of our current political climate? How do we do this as Christ-followers? We address these questions in a thoughtful conversation with real students.
For week four we’re using 1 Peter 2 as our North Star. In this chapter, Peter lays out what it looks like to live as a person submitted to God’s authority—as a “Kingdom Person.” We have been set apart by God, so we will be people who treat everyone with dignity, love our spiritual family, revere God, and respect the government.
Finally, we wrap up week five with this declaration: No matter who sits in the White House, God still sits on His throne. Our main thing, the Gospel, is still our main thing. We are still called to be for people; not these people OR those people, but ALL people. And we have the opportunity to love like Jesus by sharing the hope we have for the future, not because of an election, but because of His resurrection!
