The folks at youthministry360 have developed some really solid Thanksgiving resources. They’ve launched a Thanksgiving page that features three Thanksgiving lessons and a handful of Thanksgiving games. The best part? It’s all FREE!

Here is what you will get: 

3 awesome thanksgiving lessons

1. Changing Thankfulness

Lesson Objective: To help students understand how offering thanks to God expanded throughout the Bible, and what that means as they look for ways to offer their own thanks to God.

Lesson Includes: Teaching Plan, PowerPoint


2. Thankful In All Things

Lesson Objective: To help students understand that a thankful heart involves more than just words and thoughts; it’s a spiritual attitude that develops when we give God thanks for all things.

Lesson Includes: Teaching Plan, PowerPoint, Student Handout

3. Thankful In Praise

Lesson Objective: At a time when we are mindful of all we have, the proper response to God’s blessings is to praise Him for the favor He has showed us, and the great things He has done in our lives.

And one thanksgiving game!
