I See the Lamb or Is it the Shepherd?

Many of us have our favorite image of Christ. We must be careful not to allow our image impede the understanding and belief of someone else.

The Lamb or The Shepherd? Both!
  • When you think of Jesus what image comes to mind? Why?
  • Multiple images for Christ might be confusing to a newcomer. How can we make it easier to understand for them? Should we?
  • Christ calls us to believe in him and become one of His sheep. What does that mean to you?

Testimony

A lay person shares her personal testimony and the importance of family in her life.

Great Job, Charlotte!
  • Have you ever wanted to share your testimony? Why haven’t you?
  • Do you feel like the people you worship with are your family? Why or why not?
  • Have you ever thought about how Psalm 23 is applicable to your life? Try it.

Where Do I Go Now?

We all feel lost sometimes. How is it that you handle those times? Do you go fishing? Do you sit around the house brooding? Do you open yourself up to God’s love and express your love for Jesus Christ?

  • When was the last time you felt lost unable to determine where you should move next?
  • Have you ever heard God’s voice or felt a nudging that you were sure came from God? How did you respond?
  • Do you agree with John that it all begins with love?

Easter 2019

The Easter message for 2019. Hear Jesus calling you. See Him standing there just outside your heart saying your name.

Happy Easter everyone!
  • How did Jesus fulfill the Isaiah scripture read?
  • Is Jesus the focus of your Easter or has He been replaced with something else?
  • Do you hear Jesus calling your name? Can you see Him there just outside your heart calling to you?

Focused On Jesus Through Music

It is not just words that touch the soul. Music is very powerful. Enjoy the music both classical and traditional church. Let it focus you on the one who should be at the center of all–Jesus Christ!

Our hearts on focused on Him through music.
  • Enjoy!
  • What other ways can we touch people and get them to focus on Jesus besides sermons and music?
  • What moves you to want to worship and be centered on Christ?

Focused On Jesus

If we truly see Jesus and focus on Him we will serve Him and only Him.

What does it mean to truly see Jesus?
  1. What would it mean to this our communities and our world if we who say we follow Jesus truly focused on Him?
  2. Do you agree that focusing on Jesus and truly seeing Him means that we serve Him and only Him?
  3. How can you better serve Jesus Christ today?

New Beginnings

During this season of Lent we have talked about returning to God and repenting to God. This can and should lead to new beginnings for us and a new way to lead our lives; for our actions should follow from our beliefs.

  • Can you remember a time when a parent went out of their way to do something for you? Tell someone about it.
  • Have you ever shared your new beginning in Christ with someone? Must it be an “aha” moment in your life or can it be something different and more gradual?
  • What does it mean to you to be an ambassador for Christ? Is this still a good metaphor or do we need something else to compare it to?

A Case For Repentance

It’s not so much that we wish to avoid judgement as it is we pray to hear the judge say, “Not guilty.”

Luke 13:1-9
  1. Do you believe that you will face judgement one day?
  2. Do you believe in a loving and compassionate God? If you do, how do you deal with Jesus’ teaching on coming judgement?
  3. What do you think of Paul’s argument that sin entered the world with Adam’s fall in Genesis? Is this fair?
