Following the Star returns to the lineup of Presbyterian Mission Agency’s seasonal resources. The devotional series for Advent and Christmas is running now on d365.org. Just in time for Advent, this series features scripture, prayer and meditative thoughts accompanied by gentle music. Writers Tammy Wiens, Jeff Binder, Melissa Kessler, Lawrence Powers, Ariana Gonzalez-Bonillas and Erendira Jiminez have centered their thoughts on the classic themes of the season. A new collection of instrumental guitar arrangements has been recorded specifically for Following the Star. Visit d365.org today!
Have you checked out our Quicksheets lately?
Advent season is upon us and we have a new Quicksheet! Quicksheet #62: Advent, “Making a List and Checking it Twice” You know it; we all know it: the church competes in this season with the cultural push to buy, do, and rush, but our faith tells us to wait, prepare, and reflect. This Quicksheet tackles Wait, Prepare and Reflect of the Advent Season.
Check out these other recent Quicksheets:
- Christian Formation from A to G
- Our Sunday School Wasn’t Working: Alternative Sunday School Ideas
- Christian Formation Conversation Starters
Now is the season for the Pentecost Offering! This is the offering that funds national youth ministry, supports the Triennium, d365.org and Quicksheets. Thank you for your generous support!
“Let My People Go” is an excellent bible study written by Rebecca Barnes, Coordinator of the Presbyterian Hunger Program. This bible study invites a group of young people to examine the theological issues and conversations surrounding ecological justice, fairness and discipleship. “Let My People Go” is the final bible study prepared for youth and adults who attended the 2016 Triennium to use a way to re-engage with the theme of “GO.” This bible study is also adaptable for youth who did not attend the Triennium.

Looking for an easy, fun, way to gather young people together? How about a book club? Since millennials are known to be great leisure readers, and with so much great youth and young adult fiction available — and some excellent new “classics” — why not start a weekly or monthly book group? It’s a great summer program. It’s an ideal small group meeting platform. It is doable for a season such as Lent or Advent. Presbyterian Youth Book Club selections and study guides are user friendly and easy to download. Titles include: The Hunger Games trilogy, The Fault in Our Stars, An Abundance of Katherines, and more. These FREE study guides include Bible study, discussion questions, community building, and a youth-friendly flow. Interested in starting a Presbyterian Youth Book Club—click here!
