The Unit

Building Community and Unity


This four-week message series connects the dots for teenagers regarding their role in unifying the body of Christ. As young people study teachings from a rich, diverse section of the New Testament, they’ll evaluate their role in various communities. These captivating messages make the point for you.

As teenagers experience Jesus’ teachings about community the way he intended, they’ll reach beyond themselves to become part of something larger. This series involves teenagers by encouraging them to take action, leave behind their phones and devices, and become part of the larger mission in their community and church.

Message 1: Unity and Love


Students will discover that living a life of love is the most powerful example they can set. By studying Scripture, they’ll reflect on the church’s mission and how Jesus’ followers can best live that out.


Verses: John 17:1-26; 1 Corinthians 3:1-9; James 3:13-18; 1 Peter 4:1-11


Message 2: Overcoming Divisions


Teenagers will hear Jesus’ call for unity in the church and will discuss barriers to unity. Together, they’ll come up with specific ways to build deep unity within the body of Christ.


Verses: John 17:20-26; Psalm 133:1; Romans 12:10; 14:13-15, 19, 21; and 15:1-7


Message 3: Biblical Community


By looking at the Apostle Paul’s friendships, teenagers will explore true Christian community. They’ll also consider the type of friend they are, as well as ways to deepen their relationship with Jesus.


Verses: Romans 16:1-24


Message 4: Kingdom Citizens


Teenagers will discover some “codes” for how citizens of Jesus’ kingdom are to interact with one another. After evaluating their own youth group on its biblical community, they’ll brainstorm ways to improve the group’s commitment to Jesus and one another.


Verses: Matthew 18:15-20; John 17:20-22; Romans 12:4-5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Philippians 2:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 5:11, 14; and James 5:19-20

Every new account includes one year of access to the online tool that delivers curriculum and helps you manage your leaders ($99 value).


With our online management system, planning your small groups has never been easier. You can follow our road map and choose which lessons to teach and when. But you aren’t limited to just one schedule! You can set separate calendars if you want different groups to study different lessons.


Once you set a schedule, you can make assignments to small-group leaders so they know exactly what they’re teaching. All they have to do is log into the Live Curriculum using their own account created by you. Not only will leaders see what they’re teaching, but you can send them messages and share files you want them to have for small group.


And because the system’s online, it’s always available so you and your leaders can prepare at your convenience.
