Freebie Friday #135: Salt and Light Prayer Stations package

Free youth ministry resources every FridayI think Brett Hetherington has contributed more to our Freebie Fridays over the past couple years than anyone else. The best part is, his stuff is always quality material. Besides serving as one of the Youth Ministry Mentors, he’s contributed eight other youth teaching series’ and resources here in the past, and today’s series is no different. Visit his site and let him know how much you appreciate his generosity in equipping your ministry with great resources time and time again!

Salt & Light Prayer Stations are an interactive walk through of Matthew 5.13-17, in which Jesus informs the disciples that they are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. It is such a familiar teaching and topic of Scripture that often we miss the details of the passage. What is saltiness? Why is it important to be a light? What would salt be like if it truly lost its saltiness? These stations are designed to offer answers to these and a host of other questions that you and your teenagers might have – or never realized that you had – about this passage. This can be used as it’s own event/lesson with a small debriefing time after the walk through or as a supplement to a larger teaching element.

    I'm sorry, Tim, but once again I am getting error messages when downloading your Freebie. Could you possibly email the information to me to see if that will work. This looks like something that would fit beautifully with our retreat next Spring when we focus on parables.

    Thank you for all you do,

    • Hmm… I didn't even zip this one. This zip archive is straight from Brett. He's on a PC and I'm on a Mac. It works fine for me. Do you have trouble extracting other zip files on your computer?
