‘Walk into any middle school youth group and you’ll hear the same thing—herds of students talking! But when you’re tired of hearing them talk about things that make your head hurt (you know, the latest video game or their favorite song!), give them something worth talking about! The best-selling TalkSheets series just keeps going… In Still More TalkSheets for Middle School Students, you’ll find 50 creative ways to get your youth group talking about things that matter. The one-page, reproducible handouts are compelling and thought provoking. Not only that, they’re easy for you to use: You’ll find helpful hints and optional activities that can help facilitate great conversations. Inside the pages of this book, you’ll find topics that cover issues of life and faith. Your middle school students will be engaged with and thinking about topics like: * Communicating with and hearing back from God * Choosing to follow God rather than the crowd no matter what kind of peer pressure you might face * Exploring what the New Testament has to say about when Jesus is coming back * Being committed to intentional prayer * And 46 more!’
