Interact with Scripture…
In Scripture Highlights, inspirational verses are featured to offer an opportunity to reflect and are designed so students can colour them in!
The Searching for God feature offers reflections and prayers that focus specifically on aspects of our relationship with God, and the Who Is My Neighbor? feature focus on our relationship and responsibility to others as a Christian community.
Explore the Bible…
Young people can explore the Scripture easily with themed Reading Plans, as well as When I’m Feeling verses that help youth explore what the Bible might say to them about their own life experiences and feelings.
