Rescue  [A Root of Deep Discipleship]

Overview:

We are slaves, held captive by terrible enemies: sin and death. In this fallen, corrupt, and shattered world, we need a rescuer—Jesus, our savior and redeemer. In fact, he’s the only one who can free us. And once we’ve been freed, we have the opportunity to join in the rescue mission for others.

This content is digitally downloadable, and you’ll have it for life. Immediately after purchase, 100% of the content will be in your LeaderTreks account, and you can access it via the Deep Discipleship dashboard.

What Makes These Lessons Unique?
The goal of Deep Discipleship is not only to teach students more about God; it’s also to help guide students into God’s presence, to show them how to engage with God and how to grow a deep relationship with him. So each Bible-based lesson (after the kick-off Intro lesson) is equipped with an Experiential Activity that allows students to tangibly interact with the core discipleship principle they are studying. Each lesson also includes: What the Bible Says About It (with discussion questions), A Second Look from culture or history (also with discussion questions), a Life Application that helps students identify one change they can make this week to grow, and Leader Notes with tons of background info, context, and help for those hard-to-answer questions!

Lesson Topics:

1) Rescue Intro Lesson: This lesson helps students gain a framework for the salvation story of Jesus: the consequences of sin, his sacrifice on the cross, the need for a rescue mission, and our adoption into God’s family.

2) Sin: Why do we need grace? This lesson emphasizes the fact that every person chooses to worship themselves instead of God. This introduces guilt, shame, and pain into the world. But thankfully, God has created a plan to save and heal us. Bible Passage: Luke 16:19–30

3) Sacrifice: Why did Jesus have to die? This lesson dives into the idea that Christ’s sacrifice is necessary to bridge the gap between humanity and God. Bible Passage: John 3:1–21

4) Adoption: How do I fit into God’s family? This lesson will underscore the fact that followers of Christ are adopted by God. When we accept Jesus as Lord, our sins are washed away. But we’re also accepted into the family of God. Bible Passages: John 1:1–18 and Ephesians 2:1–10

5) Salvation: How does being saved make a difference in my life today? Being saved and following Christ means that we have a mission to fulfill here on earth. In this lesson, students will be challenged to make the mission of Christ a part of their lives on a daily basis. Bible Passage: John 9

+Videos

Video is a key component to Deep Discipleship. When you purchase the Rescue Root you receive the following videos:

> How It Works Video so you will understand what content is included, where it’s found, and what it’s for.
> Tips and Training Video for you and other adults facilitating the program.
> Animated Rescue Overview Video is designed to show your entire youth ministry. You can also use it to inform parents and others in the church. Three formats are available (.mov, .wmv, .mp4).

+Sermons

We know that sermon prep can swallow up a lot of your time, so we’ve included four bonus sermons in the Rescue Root. These sermons line up with lessons 2 through 5 of the study. (Because lesson 1 is an introductory lesson, no bonus sermon is necessary.) These sermons are Microsoft Word documents that can easily be edited to take out or add in whatever you’d like. They are biblically solid, relevant, and written for students.

+Media & Graphics

A comprehensive Media and Graphics pack helps you spread the word to the whole church and the youth ministry.

The Media and Graphics Kit includes:
> Deep Discipleship Logos
> Rescue Root Logos
> Powerpoint Slide Images and Backgrounds
> Facebook and Instagram sized logos
> 11×17 Poster

+Parents

We realize that parents are the primary faith influencers in a young person’s life. The best disciple making takes place when students’ parents take the lead. That’s why we’ve created this helpful guide for parents to use at home with their child. It is designed to give them some basic information about what is being taught at church through the Deep Discipleship program, along with some helpful tools, suggestions, and questions to help them reinforce this learning at home.

We recommend that you give these guides to parents BEFORE you begin teaching the full content in your youth ministry. This way parents not only know what is coming next for their child, they can begin to engage with them and ask questions before they start going through the content.

More About Rescue Root:

We are slaves, held captive by terrible enemies: sin and death. In this fallen, corrupt, and shattered world, we need a rescuer—Jesus, our savior and redeemer. In fact, he’s the only one who can save us from this mess that started way back with Adam and Eve. He gave his followers freedom from sin and its effects when he took them on at the cross. This freedom comes at a great cost, but it gives us a new life and reconnects us with God forever. And once we’ve been freed, we have the opportunity to join in the rescue mission for others.
