Back to School Youth Group Activities & Bible Lessons


By the teenage years, most students do not find themselves particularly thrilled at the prospect of returning to early morning alarm clocks, homework, and teacher talks. Going back to school might come with mixed feelings in middle and high school. Getting back to the books might not sound appealing, but it’s a great opportunity for re-focusing on the most important book of all, God’s Word! Back to school season is also a great time to discuss things like witnessing to friends, using our minds for God, and enjoying the season we’re in. Consider capitalizing on the start of an academic year for a Bible study or special fall activity afternoon. Use this “event builder” to select various concentrations for games, Bible passages, and more. Choose a few items from each category to fit your student needs and group size.
