ym360 is offering a free Thanksgiving lesson here with accompanying PowerPoint and student hand out.
Objective: To help students understand a thankful heart involves more than just words and thoughts; it’s a spiritual attitude that develops when we learn to give God thanks for all things.
Overview: Thanksgiving is unique among holidays in that it provides a time to pause and reflect on the things for which we should be thankful. As youth pastors and youth workers, we often use this special holiday as an opportunity to teach students the need to be thankful for the things they have and to show thanks to God for all the blessings He sends their way. In this lesson, you’ll lead your students to learn true thankfulness is expressed in more than just words and definitely goes beyond a single day. A spiritual attitude of gratitude develops when we learn to give thanks in all things.
