We live in a society saturated with advertisements and the pressure to upgrade to the next best product. How can we resist consumerism's promise that things can make us happy? In this one-session adult study, Christians will look at the drive to buy more and discuss how it impacts the life that Scripture challenges us to live. The study includes a Participant's Handout and a Leader's Guide that features:

  • Prayers
  • Sugge sted Scripture
  • Want/Need lists
  • Video suggestions

There is also a companion youth study, "Consumerism: If I Had a Million Bucks I'd . . ." that addresses consumerism from a youth perspective. Covering the same topic in both age groups might spark some interesting intergenerational discussion about the Christian approach to the materialistic aspects of the world. See more related resources below for additional preparation and educational materials.
