Staying Connected Online
These are resources to stay connected with us online. Check out our YouTube channel to watch the teaching videos each week! Check out the notes for each week’s teaching in the YouVersion Bible app by going to More > Events > Search “MPCC Greenwood” > Select “MPCC 5th-8th Grade Student Ministry”. Remind is our text alert service that we use to send out reminders for service and general updates. NOTE: The Remind groups below are for students, so if you’re a parent please join the Parents Remind.
Bible Apps and Websites
NOTE: We recommend that students have a print Bible to use for reading and study, even with the Bible app. The print Bible allows focused reading and is easy to highlight, underline and add notes to the pages. In a best-case situation, students would use both and always bring at least one of them with them to church and small group.
Girls Life Application Study Bible NLT
Boys Life Application Study Bible NLT
Teen Life Application Study Bible NLT
This is the main reading and study translation we use with 5th-8th graders. This is an easy-to-read version of the Bible that has been very accurately translated by a trusted group of Biblical scholars.
This is our second favorite translation. It puts the Bible text into the same type of everyday-language in English that it would have been in the original Greek and Hebrew.
This is one of the most popular versions of the English Bible in use today. Although I do not believe it reads as easily as the New Living Translation, it is accurately translated and another good English Bible.
Similar in style to the Message, it puts the text into a style more natural to the modern reader.
This is consistently one of the most accurate and helpful translations to be done in recent years.
This is not simply a text translation. This is the Bible done in visual form, like a graphic novel. This is powerful for preteens and middle school students, and a good read for adults as well! (Also available as an app.)
