Putting On Old Shoes

Take and old pair of shoes and tape them to the entrance door before your youth service begins. This will get the curiousity of the teens up. Use this to illustrate how we go to youth service or youth conventions and God changes out lives… He gives us new shoes. Unfortunately, our old shoes (old habits, friends etc.) are right outside the door waiting for us. Instead of keeping on the new shoes that God gave us (keeping the change he made in our lives) we grab the old ones when we walk out the door! Let’s talk about the importance of wearing our new shoes and where they can take us in our community and the world.
