Goal of this Life Night
The goal of this Life Night is to explain that our belief in God demands that we respond in faith. The teens will answer the question “how does my faith change me?” and commit to practical ways they can live their discipleship.
About this night
Scripture has many examples of people finding themselves in life-changing encounters with God. Each person had a choice to make—stay the same or change. In most cases, the person was so moved that he or she had no choice but to change. This Life Night helps the teens understand that their encounter with Christ demands the same change. The Life Night begins with a competition between small groups and then leads into a teaching on discipleship and the call to an active faith. After the teaching, the teens will have an opportunity to reflect on Scripture passages that give examples of people who faithfully approached Jesus with specific requests. The night ends with the teens professing an Act of Faith.
