This one-off lesson on Courage focuses on the different types of courage that Gideon needed as his experience unfolded in the book of Judges. It challenges the students to put down their masks and tackle the challenging parts of their world.

Key to this lesson is interaction with the audience by asking questions and allowing for responses. This style would be ideal for a small group, an interactive Bible study setting (like Sunday School), or a smaller youth group setting.

This lesson could be dropped into a series on Judges, heroes of the Old Testament, or on core character values.

This Resource Includes:
• Complete teaching guide (Word file)
• Small group guide (Word file)
• Title and Content slides (jpeg files)

Note from the Author

If you want to add this lesson into a retreat or camp, it would pair nicely with a screening of The Wizard of Oz. I wore a mask to add some visual drama to the opening of the talk. Also, grab some medals to hand out to your students as a reminder to be courageous!

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
