Make wordless book bracelets!
Gather the family, some string and some colorful beads—then follow the directions on this website to make everyone bracelets that tell the story of the gospel! While you create together, spend some time talking about what each color means, so that everyone understands how to use their bracelet to share the gospel.
Once your project is complete, take a picture of everyone wearing their wordless book bracelets and share it on Instagram using the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Share your testimony with someone!
When we think of the idea of witnessing about Jesus, a lot of us tend to start feeling panicky and glance around for the nearest exit. But did you know that “to witness” simply means, “to have knowledge of an event from personal observation or experience”? When you convey that personal experience to another person, that is giving your testimony.
This is a very powerful tool for presenting any position, because it’s not just about abstract ideas—it’s a story of something that really happened! Take some time to think through and write out your own personal experience with Jesus, and then try to find at least one friend, neighbor, or even total stranger to share it with over the next week.
What opportunities did God open up for you to share your testimony? Tell us about them by tweeting using the hashtag #1PeterSS.

Write your own gospel tract!
This can be anything from a summary of the gospel in a couple of sentences to a story, activity or quiz with the good news of Jesus tied in. Feel free to get creative with pictures and colorful fonts to help grab the attention of your readers! Finally, be sure to write your tract on a piece of paper or cardstock small enough to conveniently carry in your pocket or purse until you see an opportunity to give it to someone.
Why not take a picture of your creation and share it with others who are studying 1 Peter? Simply post it on Facebook using the hashtag #1PeterSS!

Read Romans chapter 5!
The Gospel is such an important message that even people who are already believers need to be reminded of it again and again! Romans 5 gives us a great summary of the incredible salvation the Father won for us through Jesus “while we were still sinners.” Find a quiet corner and read through the chapter (or invite your mom or dad to read it with you). Be careful not to just skim over it because you’ve heard it before; take time to think about how it applies to your life.
Did an aspect of the gospel pop out to you in a new way? Tweet about it so others who are studying 1 Peter can be encouraged, too! Simply use the hashtag #1PeterSS.
