Ministering to those in Need

Choose a song (it can be gospel or secular, but make sure it is appropriate for all children to hear) about someone going through a tough time. Music is a wonderful way to begin your study. Have the students listen to the song and imagine the person going through the trial is a friend of theirs. Then have them use their bibles and find scripture appropriate for this person based on their specific situation. Have each child read their chosen scripture and tell why they chose it. This teaches your students to apply scripture to real life situations, how to use their bibles effectively and how to be a witness for the Lord. Each student although listening to the same song will have different scipture. You can even have students choose songs for later classes (Warning: make sure you listen to the songs prior to class. Some of your teens may not always choose the most appropriate songs.) Enjoy.
