SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE
Consider & Pray
The Urgency of the Message
What hinders you? What are the obstacles in your way as you endeavor to communicate the gospel? Ask God to help you overcome them with his help.
The Importance of the Message
What needs to be made clear to the people you speak to about the hope we have in Jesus? What are their misunderstandings of the gospel? Pray that God would help you to speak relevantly and clearly to those whom you meet.
Could there be areas in our own lives that confuse the Gospel message by the way we behave? Do our lives as well as our words testify to the transformational power of God's love and grace? Ask the Holy Spirit to fill your heart with that love.
The Joy of the message
Think about how amazing it is to know that all your sin is forgiven and how God sees you as righteous because of Christ's death and resurrection.
Pray that the Holy Spirit would fill you with the knowledge of Christ.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Certainty of the message
What a great and simple Gospel we have.
Let's encourage one another to proclaim it.
Song to Start -
This week's song is Be Bold, Be Strong. Nick and Siobhan will send an actions video around on the church families WhatsApp group.
Activity 1 - Bible Verse Scroll
Write the verses Acts 16:31 - "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved" on a piece of paper and then make it into an ancient scroll using tea bags to stain the paper, and if your parents are able to help you then burn the edges and tie it up with a decorative ribbon.
Activity 2 - Obstacle course
Can you design a challenging obstacle course with different challenges? When you test out the obstacle course can you carry the message on your scroll with you? Time yourself doing the obstacle course and try to beat your time. We'd love to see a vide of your obstacle course.
Activity 3 - Bible verse challenge
Can you learn Acts 16:31 - "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved"
by heart and recite it?
