Echoes: A DNOW Study
A Disciple Now (DNow) event can have a huge impact on your youth ministry and your entire church. Having a solid, biblically based, and engaging curriculum is crucial for your event to be all it can be. We created Echoes to give you an outstanding DNow curriculum at a ridiculously affordable price.
The Echoes study is designed to deal with questions that plague every student trying to figure out what to do next and how to make the right decisions: “How do I know what God wants me to do?” “How do I know what his voice sounds like?” “Why won’t God answer my prayers?” Echoes helps students recognize God’s voice in their lives. It helps students gain the tools to discern whether or not a message is from God, and it even equips students to deal with times when God seems silent. Use Echoes to train your students to hear God’s voice and to invite unbelieving students to hear God’s voice for the very first time.
What are the Lesson Topics in Echoes?
1) Whispers: It’s easy to miss God’s voice in our lives when we expect it to sound a certain way. Elijah expected to hear from God in a windstorm, an earthquake, and a fire – but God’s voice came to him in a gentle whisper. By ridding ourselves of distractions and tuning our hearts in to God’s frequency, we can start hearing the different ways his voice echoes in our lives.
2) Words: God uses other people, the Holy Spirit, and Scripture to speak with us. Not only does God speak to us through these methods individually, but he also combines them in amazing and intricate ways so we can learn to trust his voice wherever we hear it.
3) Silence: In this session, students will learn that God’s silence doesn’t mean we can’t know his will for our lives. He gives us direction even when we have a hard time hearing from him directly. God’s silence doesn’t mean he is distant. And those times of silence can help us appreciate the moments when we hear from him again.
4) Sheep: We constantly receive conflicting messages, sometimes from people we trust. But how can students tell which of these messages come from Jesus and which don’t? It starts with learning from Scripture what his voice sounds like, so we can be like sheep who know their Shepherd’s voice.
