This is a one-class summary of the life of Samuel with a half-sheet list of applications we can learn from his life. Ideal for a walk-through-the-Old-Testament series for teenagers.
1) Samuel's Facebook profile -- Here's what the prophet Samuel's Facebook profile page and wall would be like if he were around today! The "status update"s are key points from his life, told from his own perspective, and also from that of his sons and the Israelites - who write comments to him on his "wall". It's a one slide Powerpoint meant to be printed off as a hand-out.
2) Applications -- There is a link to a Google doc in which I include Christian life applications we can see from Samuel's life. Teacher version included, and then 1/2-sheet student hand out. Students can fill in as you go. Make sure to think of your own life stories to explain; you'll find mine in this doc.
If you think you come up with better phrases and updates to make for a better summary of Samuel's life and ministry, feel free to let me know or send your better version to me! chicorico70 at hotmail dot com
