DOUG'S NOTE: Matthew McNutt is one of my favorite DYM authors! He always gives so much of himself--great content, clear references, bumper videos, handouts, small group questions, graphics... it's thoughtful and complete. Check this out and his other series--he's solid!

Often overlooked, 1-2 Chronicles is a powerful look back at the stories of Genesis through 2 Kings. The unknown author, simply known as ""The Chronicler,"" revisits the stories of old with a new sense of purpose and a story of hope in God's love and promised redemption. Telling the stories of David, Solomon, Josiah, and many others, with a touch of the epic, the Chronicler challenges the reader to learn from the past and take hope into the future.

This three-week series looks at three significant moments in Chronicles:

Week 1 - This Book is Not Safe. Looking at 1 Chronicles 17 and David's desire to build a temple, students are challenged with a call to action, to recognize Jesus as their King, and to choose their next step.

Week 2 -  Make It Up to Me Now. In 2 Chronicles 7, Solomon dedicated the temple. God challenged the people (and students) to humble themselves, pray, worship God, and turn to God's ways.

Week 3 - One Little Boy. The last strong king, Josiah, took the throne at only eight years old. Through his story, students confront three lies: (1) that they are too young, (2) they can't make a difference, and (3) that it's too late for forgiveness.

Each lesson includes video clip ideas, bumper videos that can be played in person or used online on social media, and game suggestions that can be purchased on DYM that tie to the theme.
