Goal for the Life Night:
The goal of this Night is to break open the big picture of the Old Testament for teens and help them see the whole story of salvation in the context of its beginnings.
Life Night at a Glance:
This Night is a spoof of the popular ESPN show entitled “SportsCenter” and is a great way to set up the entire semester of LIFE Nights. Teens often look at the stories of the Old Testament as simply a series of unconnected and unrelated stories. This night will show them how God has been working since the beginning of time to reveal Himself and his love to us. The stories and people of the Old Testament begin to come alive as we see them in the context of God’s great love story.
The Night begins with a humorous parody of SportsCenter that will give the “top stories”, the “save of the day” and the “top ten” prophets. The teaching will jump off from the video and show how each story is part of a bigger picture, reveals God’s character and sets the stage for Christ in the New Testament. After the teaching, the teens will have an opportunity to see the bigger picture of God’s revelation working in their own lives. Finally, the Night will end with a time of reflection on the characteristics of God revealed through the Old Testament.
