“So let’s do it—full of belief... Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on.” –Hebrews 10:24-25

Sermon Title: “The Prayer — part 1”


Theme The Lord’s Prayer is beloved by Christians throughout the world.
It’s also one of the first prayers we learn and also very easy to pray
without really thinking what it means. Jesus gave us this prayer for
a reason.

Questions to Think About as You Read:
1) When was the last time you prayed the Lord’s pray slowly and contemplated
it’s meaning?
2) What are the different elements of the prayer?
3) How does praying this prayer compare with “Just praying what’s on
our hearts”?

Sermon Title: “Tangible Reminders"

Theme Whether it’s a birthday, Christmas or anniversary present or a wedding
ring, tangible reminders of someone’s love are very important in our
lives. They are a sign of that person’s love even when things aren’t
going well. The Lord has given us tangible reminders of grace and
mercy in the form of baptism and communion that we can carry with
us throughout life.

Questions to Think About as You Read:

1) When taking communion have you ever experienced an emotional moment?
2) Why do you think some people feel like they can’t come to church if they’ve
“messed up”?
3) Why do some denominations baptize infants and others don’t?

emotion around Christmas with the many family celebrations and

Text:Exodus 12:1-28


Theme The Passover account in the Old Testament is central to Christians
understanding of Jesus as the “Lamb of God”. It is also central to our
understanding of Maundy Thursday and why it’s so important to
immerse ourselves in the events of Holy Week to fully understand the
real meaning of Easter.

Questions to Think About as You Read:
1) After reading Exodus why is Jesus referred to as The Lamb of God throughout
the New Testament?
2) How does understanding the account of Passover in Exodus make Easter
more meaningful?

Sermon Title: “Making a Good Thing Even Better!”

Theme The first three commandments come first rather than at the end
Theme In the Ten Commandments, commandments 4-10 all have to do with
our relationships with each other. While God could have given us
thousands of commandments imagine the implications if we could
keep just these ten — the change in our lives would be astonishing!

Questions to Think About as You Read:
1) Which of commandments 4-10 (see Exodus 20:12-21) is the most difficult
for you?
2) Which of the commandments if you could practice it more regularly would have
the greatest implication on your life with others?

Text:Exodus 20:1-11

Sermon Title: “Putting The HORSE Before the Cart”

Theme The first three commandments come first rather than at the end
because they remind us of the importance of establishing our
relationship with God first. Once that is established it has definite
implications for the rest of our relationships.

Questions to Think About as You Read:
1) How many of the Ten Commandments can you recite without looking them up?
2) Why do you think they are called the Ten Commandments in The Bible rather
than the “Ten Good Ideas” or the “Ten Suggestions?”
