ASL Interpretation

How do we build for the future when the future seems so uncertain? This week, we’ll turn to Acts 2 to see how the early church began as a model for how we can continue to build the future of the Church together. As we follow their lead, we not only participate in building for the future, we may also find some stability as we live in an uncertain time.

Discussion Questions

How do you stay connected to the church community, especially now during the quarantine? What technology has helped you stay connected?

Even though the future may be uncertain, what are things we can do in the present that will shape our future?

Read Galatians 5:22. As you read through the fruit of the Spirit, what are some ways you’ve experienced those things during this time? How can you impart those things to others?

What some people call boredom, we might see an opportunity to engage God in silence and solitude. What are some ways you use quiet to “Encounter the Builder.”

As you spend time in prayer this week, write down things that come to mind you feel God may be telling you. What is He leading you to do today that might have an impact on the future?

Who are you?

A believer's identity is in Christ. In Him we find true life, meaning, and purpose. Yet, it is common for believers to take their eyes off of Jesus and begin substituting other things in His place. We look for other ways to identify ourselves often choosing how we...

Count Me In

It shouldn’t surprise us that through the centuries, superstitions arise and thrive even among well-meaning church people. Most of these superstitions are based on a desire for a kind of good luck charm in a life filled with uncertainty and hardship. Even the practice...

A Call to Action

It is great to gather as the church. But we are also told by Jesus to “go” as the church, sharing God’s word with others and making them disciples. Fulfilling the Great Commission is not an option or a suggestion. It is a command to each of us as believers to actively...
