Summer Themes – Preacher’s Choice

Questions

Over the summer, each preacher will be speaking from a Bible passage of their choosing. Most Growth Groups are also not meeting during August.

So here are some general questions to help you reflect on what’s been said…

Read through the Bible passage from today’s service & listen to the sermon

What are your initial reactions to this passage:

  • Does anything in the passage jump out at you – either from reading it or from what the speaker said? Why?
  • Does anything connect with something you’ve been doing, reading or thinking about?
  • Is there anything you haven’t noticed before?
  • Imagine what it would have been like to be one of the original listeners at the time the Bible passage was written, or to be one of the characters in the story. What would they be thinking and feeling?
  • What do you think God was highlighting to you from what you read or heard?
  • How do you think he wants you to respond?

What can I pray for?

You can pray for…

  • Our church – as we move into a time of transition
  • Our community – pray for a local issue, community group, business or public service
  • One of our mission Partners. You can find out more here
  • Global or international issues

How to Pray or Read the Bible

It’s good to get into a daily habit of daily prayer and reading the Bible. There are lots of ways to do this. We’ve given some suggestions on this website on ‘How can I pray?’ and ‘How can I read the Bible?’. If you need help, do ask us – we’d love to help!
