Week of Sunday, September 24

Sermon Discussion

Each week, we share how the Lord used His Word from Sunday’s sermon in our lives.

Bible Study

This week, we will read and discuss Psalm 69. Reading this psalm beforehand will help you contribute to and benefit from our discussion.

Time in Prayer

At each meeting, we want to share updates about the circumstances through which the Lord is growing our faith. Together, we want to pray for enduring faith and for joy through Christ in all things. This week, in particular, we also want to be praying for the following items.

  • Pray for our missionaries, asking the Lord to help them as they prepare to head back to their home abroad in just a few weeks.
  • Pray for meaningful engagement with our community as we participate in the upcoming Trunk or Treat event in Richfield (Oct 14).
  • Pray for opportunities for ministry among the Hispanic community in Richfield, as we continue to get to know the Spanish-speaking families who worship with us regularly. Pray also for our Spanish/bilingual community group that God would bear much fruit through this.
  • Pray for the Guam church plant, led by Mel Hennegan, as he and the core group continue to pray and strategize to start this new church on the island of Guam. Pray for them as they adjust their launch date to September, as a result of the recent typhoon.

Scripture Memory: Philippians 2:1–4

  • At this meeting, we will recite verses 1 to 3.
  • (1) So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, (2) complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. (3) Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. (4) Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Kids Catechism & Scripture Memory

  • Ephesians 2:8–9, (8) For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, (9) not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
