  6. 6. Application Use this as an object lesson on how sin destroys the wholeness in our lives. Things can become quite a mess. Yet Christ restored us with his sacrifice on the cross. Its not toothpicks that hold us together but his forgiveness and the nails in his hands. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com
  7. 7. Bible Studies based on the book of Jonah Only. This youth camp curriculum was designed to teach the basic truths of obedience in addition to evangelism in the context of a Biblical character. The advantage of going through a book and looking at one man's story is that we see not only the teaching but the example. It becomes much more real!

  8. 8. Creative Youth Ideas Camp Bible Study Series “Who Do You Say that I AM?” www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/whodoyousay.html -> Tell me about “Who Do You Say that I AM?” Jesus asked the disciples, "Who do others say that I am?" It was easy to answer because it required no conviction, no commitment, and no risk. But then he follows that question with another, "Who do YOU say that I am?" www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com
