Joshua Strong and Courageous

GOLD members pay $6.50
A three-week series on the book of Joshua looking at God's faithfulness, our call to action, and why we can be confident in God. Includes student handouts and small group guides.


The book of Joshua is an exciting look at ancient Israelite history; a pivotal era when the chosen people finally begin claiming the Promised Land after centuries of waiting, slavery, and wandering in the wilderness. Joshua was an intimidated new leader, replacing the legendary Moses, in a book that will challenge students to grow in their faith in God, challenge them to act, and call them to a decision for Christ.

This three-week series looks at:
Week One: Three Reasons (Joshua 1). God gave Joshua (and us) three reasons why we can be strong and courageous.

Week Two: Be a Rahab (Joshua 2 & 7). Because of her faith, Rahab was able to act. Because he grew too comfortable and confident in his own abilities, Joshua failed to act. These two stories are a powerful reminder to always turn to God.

Week Three: It's Time (Joshua 24). Even after decades of seeing God do incredible things, the Israelites had idols hidden away. Joshua told them it was time to decide, to be all in for God!
