When beliefs, attitudes, and values line up with actions there is
character. Helping teenagers grow in Christlike character is no easy
task. How do we help teenagers follow Jesus and take on his character?
It takes practice and the commitment of their church family to support,
encourage, and celebrate the “wins” with them along this exciting
journey of growth.

Character is a four-week Bible study designed to help teens develop
Christ-like behavior in their daily lives. Teenagers will consider
the ideas of truth, how they use their words, how they view their
possessions, and what it is to be a person of integrity. The study is
reinforced with daily devotions and exercises found in the Groove: Character Student Journal.
Helping youth embrace character and the practice of growing their
spiritual lives independent from group study can be a powerful

The Groove Bible study series invites teens to learn the essentials of
their faith, own their story, and engage the world in serving Jesus.
Each topical study consists of four weekly sessions that are easy to
lead and relate to life issues teens face. With up to 48 weeks
available, Groove is great for Sunday and mid-week gatherings for both
large and small groups as well as retreats.The student journal contains
session-specific questions, background information, and daily devotions
for each session.
