Is There Hope For A New Start?

May 9, 2017

 

What a great Sunday! We had 24 people say YES to Jesus and get baptized last weekend!

THE SERMON

 

Sy Huffer, Lead Minister, encourages us to look to Christ for times of refreshing as we commit and recommit our lives to Him.

THE QUESTIONS

Use these questions to further explore the theme of the message.

Pray: Is it time for you to take a step and repent, turn to God, have your sins wiped away so that times of refreshing may come? Pray and ask God to reveal to you the future that He wants to give you.

Speak: Peter and John, in Acts 3, were open to speaking to the man who had a need. They were open to interruptions. Are you? What does it look like to speak to others that are in dire need of a new future?

Grow: Do you need a new future? Do you need to be saved in the midst of the present? Are there issues from the past that you can’t seem to overcome? What does it look like to have hope in Jesus for a new life?

Love: Sy told a story about a church member going up to a new baptized believer and telling them their name and offering them help in any way. Is this how you approach new people coming into the church? How can you intentionally help your community to be one where new people can come and belong in Christian community?
