National Junior High Sunday in the Church of the Brethren will be observed on Nov. 1. The 2015 theme is based on James 2:14-17 from “The Message”: “Faith Without Works Is Outrageous Nonsense.” Worship resources and other resources for the special Sunday are made available online and are free to download from www.brethren.org/yya/jr-high-resources.html .
Resources for the 2015 junior high Sunday are authored by a number of Church of the Brethren young adults, and include skits and action ideas, children’s stories, worship resources such as calls to worship and benedictions, stewardship resources including offertory statements and prayers, Bible studies, scripture jams, sermon helps, and more.
Also available on the website are high and low resolution versions of the theme logo, in both full color and black and white.
The observance of National Junior High Sunday is sponsored by the Youth and Young Adult Ministries office of the Church of the Brethren Congregational Life Ministries.
