HEAR ME ROAR: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON EVANGELISM
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: BE BOLD TOGETHER

SERIES OVERVIEW:

We’ve all heard it before. “Be bold!” “Don’t be ashamed!” “Take a stand!” But let’s be honest. Being bold about your faith can be awkward, intimidating, or just plain terrifying—especially when you’re a teenager who’s already feeling pressure to be liked and accepted. In this 4-week series, you’ll acknowledge that challenge, then encourage students to grow in their boldness as you walk through a few key stories in the book of Daniel. These four stories help us see that being bold begins when we fill up on God, surround ourselves with like-minded people, choose peace even when it’s difficult, and practice boldness consistently.

We can probably all agree that teenagers spend more time staring at their phones than what’s healthy. But that doesn’t mean we should discount screens entirely. Try to think of was you can use technology to connect more deeply with the students you lead. Here’s a video to get you thinking . . .

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
