Prepare with Prayer
Sunday, Aug. 1 | 10:30am
Youth Center
“We Choose to Bless”
The past year and a half has been a harsh time. As we come out of that season, we, the church, choose to respond with a blessing. We will be coming together to ask God to bless our community, our members/attenders, pastors, elders and ministry teams. Ultimately, our desire is that we are a blessing to God as we carry out the mission He has given the church.

Sermon Discussion Questions


Questions for Reflection:

  1. How does today’s passage illuminate God’s historical, over-arching plan of salvation?
  2. What are some reasons for why people miss out on or reject Jesus? What can we do to help counter those?


Questions for Discussion:

  1. How does the prophecy in Zechariah 6:9-13 point us to Jesus?
  2. Why is recognizing Jesus as both “man” and “King” so crucial to a full understanding of who he is?
  3. How would you answer the question, “Who is Jesus to you?”
