Sweet Bible Study

By Christian
Tuesday is Middle School Bible study day. I meet with a bunch of MS students after school at Panera Bread, and we spend about an hour together. It's a really wild time usually, because not only are they pumped to be out of school, but they also tend to order things that are high on sugar. This means that it is very important to come with things that will hold their attention, because if you don't then you are dead in the water.
Yesterday, my co-leader and I decided to bring a Napoleon Dynamite themed study that we found on the Youth Specialties site (http://www.youthspecialties.com/free/programming/napoleon/). It was fantastic. My favorite part was watching two of our middle school students act out the following skit where Napolean eats lunch with Jesus. Just for the record, we don't usually use skits in our ministry. They tend to be cheesy and whatnot, but for this gem we made an exception...
