Worship  [A Root of Deep Discipleship]

Overview:

Worship is more than just singing, it is a lifestyle. It’s how you go about your day, and it happens when you get a vivid glimpse of God, his power, and his majesty. In the Bible, anyone who has a close encounter with God can’t help but marvel at his glory. The angels, his messengers, are in a constant state of worship. We, too, can express a life of worship by encountering God on a daily basis.

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) The Worship Intro Lesson: This lesson will help students gain a framework for what worship is and what things in our lives get in the way of worshipping God.

2) Beyond Singing: Is worship on Sunday enough? This lesson will focus on the idea that having a heart of worship comes from a deep, rooted relationship with Jesus, and that worship is a lifestyle. Bible Passage: Luke 10:38–42

3) Giving: Do I have to give as a teenager? This study is focused on all the things that go into giving and why we do it. It will help each student address their attitude, heart, thankfulness, and what resources they have to offer to God. Bible Passage: Mark 12:41–44 and 2 Corinthians 9:12–15

4) Prayer: Does it even make a difference? This lesson will focus on one of Jesus’ most well known teachings on prayer—the one that includes the Lord’s Prayer—and will share the story of a Christian from a few hundred years ago who was dedicated to prayer, even in the midst of some really hard stuff. Bible Passages: Matthew 6:1–16

5) Joy: Why should I worship when I’m hurting? This lesson will focus on how joy in Christ relates to our deep purpose as rooted followers of Jesus. It will also emphasize the difference between temporary happiness and joy in the middle of hard times. Bible Passage: Acts 16:16–40

+Videos

Video is a key component to Deep Discipleship. When you purchase the Worship 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 Worship 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 Worship 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
> Worship 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 Worship Root:

We sing because we worship. We pray because we worship. We dance because we worship. By themselves, these things are not all that special and can even be self-serving. But when they are done in response to God, they become worship played out in our lives. You see, worship is a lifestyle. It’s how you go about your day, and it happens when you get a vivid glimpse of God, his power, and his majesty. In the Bible, anyone who has a close encounter with God can’t help but marvel at his glory. The angels, his messengers, are in a constant state of worship. We, too, can express a life of worship by encountering God on a daily basis.
