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?

Knowing Yourself and Your God

Getting to know God ranks high on the list of life’s most meaningful quests. God has revealed Himself to us. He is knowable. And we can grow to know Him in deeper and deeper ways. But our knowledge of God is always connected to the knowledge of ourselves. As we get to...

Read the Bible

We live in an age of information overload, and the amount of information increases every day. Yet the most important information ever written is contained in one book--the Bible. The words in the Bible, God's words, give us life--spiritual life, eternal life. Jesus...
