This Life Night will give the teens an introduction and overview of the Old Testament covenants God made with His people. This night will cover the signs and promises of each covenant and how the Israelites chose to follow (and not follow) God’s covenants. Finally, this night will give the teens an opportunity to look at the covenants between themselves and God.
About this Night
This Life Night gives a big picture look at Scripture and salvation history through the lens of covenants. Many teens have learned to be skeptical of promises and often withhold trust from family and friends. This Life Night will look at the promises that God has made in Scripture as well as the promises that He has made to them specifically. The night starts with a quick game that helps explain the concept of a covenant. The game is followed by a funny skit about Jesus’ promises to us. The Proclaim gives an overview of the covenants in Scripture and how each covenant included a larger group of people. Rotating sessions in the Break will help the teens see how God’s promises and covenants are still at work in the different communities in their lives. Finally, the Life Night closes with an opportunity for the teens to renew their Baptismal promises.
