Overall View of Youth Bible Classes

Regular Schedule10:00 AM every Saturday morning

Early Teens Class:
The emphasis of this curriculum is God’s kingdom of grace, being a recruited agent (steward, citizen) of that kingdom, and the battle between it and the kingdom of evil. Being in God’s kingdom requires action—being doers and not just listeners (James 1:22) of how to live as God’s agents on this earth.  The Early Teens Class may also include Juniors depending on their level of maturity and covers ages 12-14.

For more information visit Real Time Faith.

Teens Class:
This curriculum is based on a four-year “through-the-Bible” study. The lessons are intended for High School teens to use in their daily Bible study and to provide the basis for learning and discussion.  The Teens class includes ages 14-18.

A Challenge to Young People to Be Educated in the Holy Scriptures

     God wants the youth to become men and women of earnest mind, to be prepared for action in His noble work, and fitted to bear responsibilities. God calls for young people with hearts uncorrupted, strong and brave, and determined to fight manfully in the struggle before them, that they may glorify God, and bless humanity. If the youth would but make the Bible their study, would but calm their impetuous desires, and listen to the voice of their Creator and Redeemer, they would not only be at peace with God, but would find themselves ennobled and elevated. It will be for your eternal interest, my young friend, to give heed to the instructions in the word of God, for they are of inestimable importance to you.  {MYP 21.1}

     Christ is calling for volunteers to enlist under His standard, and bear the banner of the cross before the world. The church is languishing for the help of young men who will bear a courageous testimony, who will with their ardent zeal stir up the sluggish energies of God's people, and so increase the power of the church in the world. Young people are wanted who will resist the tide of worldliness, and lift a voice of warning against taking the first steps in immorality and vice.  {MYP 24.3}

     But first the youth who would serve God, and give themselves to His work, must cleanse the soul temple of all impurity, and enthrone Christ in the heart; then they will be enabled to put energy into their Christian effort, and will manifest enthusiastic zeal in persuading others to be reconciled to Christ. Will not young people respond to the invitation of Christ, and answer, "Here am I; send me"? Young men and women, press to the front, and identify yourselves as laborers together with Christ, taking up the work where He left it, to carry it on to its completion.--Review and Herald, June 16, 1891.

     True education is the inculcation of those ideas that will impress the mind and heart with the knowledge of God the Creator and Jesus Christ the Redeemer. Such an education will renew the mind and transform the character. It will strengthen and fortify the mind against the deceptive whisperings of the adversary of souls, and enable us to understand the voice of God. It will fit the learned to become a co-worker with Christ.  {MYP 171.1}  

     If our youth gain this knowledge, they will be able to gain all the rest that is essential; but if not, all the knowledge they may acquire from the world will not place them in the ranks of the Lord. They may gather all the knowledge that books can give, and yet be ignorant of the first principles of that righteousness which could give them a character approved of God.  {MYP 171.2}  
     Those who are seeking to acquire knowledge in the schools of earth should remember that another school also claims them as students,--the school of Christ. From this school the students are never graduated. Among the pupils are both old and young. Those who give heed to the instructions of the divine Teacher are constantly gaining more wisdom and nobility of soul, and thus they are prepared to enter that higher school, where advancement will continue throughout eternity.  {MYP 171.3}
 
      Infinite Wisdom sets before us the great lessons of life,--the lessons of duty and happiness. These are often hard to learn, but without them we can make no real progress. They may cost us effort, tears, and even agony; but we must not falter nor grow weary. It is in this world, amid its trials and temptations, that we are to gain a fitness for the society of the pure and holy angels. Those who become so absorbed in less important studies that they cease to learn in the school of Christ, are meeting with infinite loss.  {MYP 171.4}  

     Every faculty, every attribute, with which the Creator has endowed the children of men is to be employed for His glory; and in this employment is found its purest, noblest, happiest exercise. The principles of heaven should be made paramount in the life, and every advance step taken in the acquirement of knowledge or in the culture of the intellect should be a step toward the assimilation of the human to the divine.--"Fundamentals of Christian Education," pp. 543, 544.
