Head to the Heart + 90 Included Theme Sets

“ Select from over 90 lessons to create a memorable confirmation or youth ministry experience

A Head to the Heart membership gives you access to a vast variety of lessons, 90+ lessons strong.

This provides you with maximum flexibility to teach what you want when you want. You can use the theme presentations in your regular confirmation or youth ministry programming and still resource camps, retreats and other Christian education settings.

Some churches have also reported success in tweaking their Head to the Heart lessons and incorporating them into their adult education ministry.

You can access your H2H system resources either as a downloadable resource via our H2H Online Library or as a 'hard copy' disc resource pack.

The following themes are included in H2H:

The first six 10 theme sets have been reworked (‘Aussie-fied’) with attention given to Australian English and appropriate cultural changes.

The first three theme sets are Martin Luther and the Small Catechism, The Apostles Creed and Living Lutheran. Collectively these themes respond to the question, So, what is a Lutheran? You are about to find out in the most colourful, fun and effective ways imaginable. Learn it at church in art, music, skits, stories, cartoons, and Bible study. Then, with our first locally produced H2H Home Journals, bring it home every night of the week. Thirty engaging themes in these three theme sets will take you from the birth of the Reformation to the day you make your own confirmation of faith and accept God's call to keep the reformation going on into your world.

(Maybe you’re not so interested in the question ‘So what is Lutheran. You might choose to start with the Apostles Creed Series with the accompanying Home Journal. Our next Home Journal review will be Hot Topics.)
