RESET 21 – WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

Session 1:   9:30 am – 10:20 am

Life-Changing Bible Lessons for Spiritual Growth
Facilitator:  Beverly Carroll
George Barna stated that “As children are maturing, they are faced with numerous questions and choices regarding how to live. They take cues from their environment—particularly from the people they trust—as to how to respond to the dozens of choices we make every day.” Unless they are shown the moral and spiritual implications of such choices, those factors are overlooked, often resulting in unfortunate or unforeseen consequences.” This session teaches you the steps in preparing Bible lessons for saved children to help them make spiritual choices.

Teaching Children to Share Their Faith
Facilitator:  Edna Zuraw
Spiritual champions need to be intentionally trained to share their faith with others in a variety of ways. In his book, Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions, George Barna states, “Peer evangelism among children…is one of the most prolific and effective means of evangelism in the nation.” Attend this workshop and learn powerful methods to train kids to be effective witnesses for the Lord.

Session 2:   10:30 am – 11:20 am

Forgiveness: Learning to Let Go – Part 1
Facilitator: Oddet Mears
When the heart has been hurt, when the trust has been trampled, there is a process of restoration which is of God. The issue is not how big another’s offense has been toward you, but how big God’s power is inside you to forgive any sin against you. Many of us don’t understand that forgiving a wrong lets you off the hook so your joy can be restored. God wants to set you 
free. Come and receive what He has for you. Remember forgiveness is a choice!!!


Memory Verse Tools – Zoom Games
Facilitator: Sandra Renee Walker
Reset 2021 by effectively teaching children to memorize scripture. Learn fun and creative ways to help all elementary age children to memorize scripture by playing games with children on Zoom that will enhance their learning experience. If children can learn their ABCs, they can memorize scripture. God’s Word says that we should hide God’s word in our heart so that we will not sin against God. Memorizing scripture is a vital part of Christian growth and you as their teacher can have a part in helping them to hide God’s Word in their heart in an engaging manner.


Salvation – What’s Next?  Raising Little Saints
