Football Themed Bible Study

This fall I thought I would kick off the new school year with a football themed study. The basis of the study will be the armor of God (sort of playing off the idea of Stand Firm). As of right now the lessons are about standing against temptation, Standing on the foundation of God, and standing up for others. I am still kicking some ideas around for the last one.

Here is the graphic for the study. This is a part of a handout that I am giving the students to hand out so it needed to be ready this week. I do think it is funny that I have a full graphic before I have the lessons fully fleshed out, but if I want to use it for advertising it has to get done first. Then like I did with my summer graphic I don’t have to worry about it again until the next one comes along.

    I like the graphic. What’s that supposed to be on the letters? It looks like Christmas lights that someone forgot to take down. I’m just sayin’. The concept is great….goal line stand….between the ball and the goal posts…..and you’re "kicking around" ideas…you’re on a roll.

    In the higher rez version you can see that it is pieces of rocks falling off. In my head there was going to be a video where these letters dropped down onto the field, but I don’t think I am going to do that now.

    Hello. I’m an average youth minister myself and I couldn’t help but asking what program/software you use to come up such awesome graphics. Would you mind sharing that information with me? My email address is bblair@hamlinbaptist.com

    Graphics are sort of my major hobby so I have a whole bunch of stuff. To do this piece I used Adobe Photoshop and one of the fonts from Digital Juice (www.digitaljuice.com). The basic style of the letters was already done I just had to arrange them a bit.

    I also regularly use the Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection which includes InDesign, Illustrator, After Effects, and Premiere. It is a bit pricey, but if you are a student (or have one in your house) you can pick it up for a steep discount.

    Hope that helps.

    On a side note, I really think I make these graphics for me. I can’t tell if they do a whole lot to make the lessons better, but I enjoy making them and if there is just one student who is visual like me maybe it helps.
