The Body of Christ | Bible Study
by Ryan Wilson
At Youth Ministry Conversations, we believe you know your group best. This means our resources look a little different than what you may have experienced in the past. We try and create a “buffet” of material so you can choose and pick what works best for your group. You will find ideas, instructions, and possibilities in this packet all related to the theme of “The Body.” How you use them, and how you structure your study is up to you. We hope you enjoy this resource and return in the future to check out other materials.
This study takes a closer at the Last Supper, which is the final meal Jesus shared with his disciples. This series will help students to gain a deeper understanding of communion as a Christian sacrament and worship element. It will begin with an introduction to communion and then move into an exploration of three themes present in the story of Jesus’ last meal: betrayal, thanksgiving, and remembrance.
