During the current COVID-19 pandemic, we believe it is important to show solidarity with our health officials who are working to protect the lives of people in our community, city and country by limiting gatherings to less than five people.
Therefore, we have moved our worship service to an online format that will be available any time after 10:30am on May 24, 2020. Please join us online with your family to worship, listen to a biblically-based sermon and discuss together the provided questions at the end of the sermon.
If you are gathered with your family, please discuss the following questions together. Otherwise if you are participating in this online service alone, please join our Zoom meeting at 12:00pm to discuss the questions with Pastor Bill and others from our church community.
- Share about a time in your life when you felt hopeless.
- Share about a time in your life when Jesus brought or restored hope. Read Hebrews 11:1 – how are faith, hope and confidence related?
- Four times the scriptures lump faith, hope and love together:
- And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
- The faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel. (Colossians 1:5)
- We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 1:3)
- But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. (1 Thessalonians 5:8)
- Why are these three set apart as paramount?
- Why do faith and love spring from hope?
- How is the hope of salvation like a helmet?
- How does your faith, hope and love help you cope with the pandemic?
