Adapted from our legacy study Ships, this new curriculum encourages young people to love and edify others, no matter the context. As students abide in God's grace, they'll learn how to reflect Him to their family, friends, church, community, and perhaps their future spouse.
This 30-lesson study explores God’s grace in the following key relationships:
Lordship – We treasure our bond to God above all others. He is our Father, our Savior, and our Sustainer—the model for every good relationship.
Kinship – We honor our parents and cherish our children, pointing every family member to Christ.
Friendship – We choose our friends wisely, and then build them up through kindness, encouragement, and forgiveness.
Fellowship – We worship and serve with fellow believers, glorifying God by discipling others for Him.
Citizenship – We learn, work, and serve to advance the gospel of Christ, choosing to claim or forgo our rights for His sake.
Marriage and Courtship – We honor our spouse, celebrating gender, intimacy, and sexuality through committed, sacrificial love. While still unmarried, we seek a spouse only in love and truth.
