Go Where They Are
If your students are members of the Facebook social network, consider sending them a message during the week preceding this lesson. Ask each of them to send you a three-sentence note describing the moment when they first accepted Jesus into their heart. Ask them to share the time and place where their transformation began. Note: not all kids will have done this, so be sure to include something in the note that lets all the kids know the responses are totally voluntary.
When you get to class, choose one or two notes to share. Ask the writers for permission to share their testimony, or better yet, ask them if they’d like to do it themselves.
