The purpose of this Bible Study series is to communicate to youth how amazing and wonderful God is. He is limitless, yet loving; beyond human comprehension, yet wants to know us personally. Each study will concentrate on one or two attributes of God. Students will explore Scripture to identify the meaning of each attribute, and will evaluate how that deepens their awe of and love for our Heavenly Father. They will discuss how God’s attributes allow us to recognize who He is, and how we can serve Him with our lives. This series will also concentrate on how God works in and through us, and how we experience His presence in Word and Sacrament.
*Note: activities suggested within each lesson include recommendations for conducting the series virtually, as well as in person.

The session topics include:
- Powerful, yet Personal: This lesson invites students to contemplate characteristics of God and to consider how those aspects impact their lives. In this study, teens will examine the awesome wonder of God’s utter omnipotence.
- God is Immutable and Immanent: In this portion of the study, students will consider how God is unchanging and forever faithful. There was never a time before God, and after the world is gone God will remain. Through that, though, God does not change.
- God is Mighty, Yet Merciful: This lesson visits a dual element of God’s nature that is often misconstrued or misrepresented. God is fair and just, but He is also benevolent and gracious. It will review the difference between grace and mercy, and will look at how God demonstrates both towards us.
- God is Glorious, yet Giving: In this study, teens will examine God’s holiness, as well as His love and sacrifice. Sometimes we treat God too flippantly, neglecting how important it is to act reverently and respectfully in His presence. However, it is also possible to focus too much on His grandeur and forget that He cares for us personally and relationally.
