re:form Traditions / Methodist / Leader Guide

re:form Traditions is designed to be used alongside the core re:form curriculum, or your current curriculum, in settings like confirmation classes where additional denominational-specific material is preferred or required.


We assembled a dream team of Methodist theologians, pastors, and practitioners from across the country to create re:form Traditions - Methodist. Together, they provided historical accuracy, a theological framework, and translated it all into fun activities and language that speaks to today's youth.


For each lesson, the re:form Traditions Leader Guide provides a theological background on the question presented in the video, offers suggestions on supporting youth as they tackle the tough questions, and includes direction for the individual and group activities included in the re:form Anti-Workbook.


re:form Traditions - Methodist includes 4 sessions (Backstory, Beliefs, Practices, and Tradition Today):

  • Did the Methodist Church really start because of some holier-than-thou teenagers?
  • What the heck is prevenient grace and do I have to learn geometry to be Methodist?
  • If a Methodist sings out of tune, does that mean they're not perfect?
  • What actually happens when Methodists are on a mission?
