FAMILIES

SEATING FOR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
Gathering as a church family for worship is an essential part of following Jesus together. It is right that we help one another make the most of this time. Beginning in October, one way we can do this for our families with young children, is by designating the rear right seating area for quicker access into and out of the sanctuary.

Today we begin a new sermon series titled Return to Hope. Scripture Journals for personal use are available in the foyer. Pick yours up today!

SERMON NOTES

RETURN TO HOPE
Return to Me

Zechariah 1:1-6

Five truths to lead us to God.

Word: God speaks clearly.

Anger: God responds righteously.

Repentance: God commands urgently.

Hope: God promises lovingly.

Sovereign: God accomplishes surely.

DISCUSSION

  • How would you answer a person who is troubled by the judgment of God proclaimed in the Bible?
  • Why is the cross of Jesus necessary for our salvation?
  • How should a Christian apply the truth about God’s righteous wrath?  What can we expect from God when we sin?
  • What is repentance?  Why is repentance necessary to receive the blessing of God?
