Sunday school lessons are meant to teach kids about morality, integrity, kindness, and other honorable traits. Using the Bible as a guide, these classes are intended to teach potent lessons to individuals in a way that is accessible and easy to understand.
High school is perhaps the most formative time in a young person’s life. It is where they transform into a young adult and form the values they will carry with them through life. Many teens are faced with temptations that can lead to poor decisions and, sometimes, terrible mistakes. Finding Sunday school lessons that tackle the topics high school students need to hear is of utmost importance.
Though all lessons from the Bible apply to people of any age, there are some that truly resonate with teens. Here are some topics to look for and focus on:

Purity is an important topic to tackle with teens. The word purity can have different meanings for different people.
