We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

Scriptures:

1 Corinthians 1:10-31 (MSG)

The Cross: The Irony of God’s Wisdom

 

10 I have a serious concern to bring up with you, my friends, using the authority of Jesus, our Master. I’ll put it as urgently as I can: You must get along with each other. You must learn to be considerate of one another, cultivating a life in common.

11-12 I bring this up because some from Chloe’s family brought a most disturbing report to my attention—that you’re fighting among yourselves! I’ll tell you exactly what I was told: You’re all picking sides, going around saying, “I’m on Paul’s side,” or “I’m for Apollos,” or “Peter is my man,” or “I’m in the Messiah group.”

Acts 4:32-35 (MSG)

32-33 The whole congregation of believers was united as one—one heart, one mind! They didn’t even claim ownership of their own possessions. No one said, “That’s mine; you can’t have it.” They shared everything. The apostles gave powerful witness to the resurrection of the Master Jesus, and grace was on all of them.

34-35 And so it turned out that not a person among them was needy. Those who owned fields or houses sold them and brought the price of the sale to the apostles and made an offering of it. The apostles then distributed it according to each person’s need.

 

 

MAKE US ONE

by Aaron Keyes, Bryan Brown, Evan Wickham, Michael Gungor

 

Shattered pieces, frayed and torn, a scattered people
A house divided, a love forlorn, a body breaking

They’ll know us by our love, they’ll know us by our love
What will become of us if all we want is blood

Father make us one a new humanity
Jesus send your love, let division cease
Spirit grant us peace, blessed Trinity
Make us one like you are one 

A barren wasteland burning cold, we are a graveyard
We are the darkness, and you’re a thousand stars
The wrecking ball for our wounded walls

Beautiful, brokenness redeemed
Beautiful, like oil for the priest
We are a million rivers of tears 
You are making us one sea of love

Father make us one we pray for unity
Let the church be come a true community
We are all the same, children with your name
Make us one like you are one

Church History: 2,000 years in 20 minutes

August 28, 2016

 

Warm Up:

Can you think of the qualities that define Christ's church?

Diving in:

  • In 1 Corinthians 1:11-12, Paul urges people to stop taking sides and assigning themselves to separate groups under Christ. Why do you think he advocated for this?

 

  • In Acts 4:32-35, there is a picture painted of a congregation in which no one is needy. Do you think this is truly possible to achieve?  If not, why?  If yes, why?

 

  • Christ paints a very simple, yet loving picture of what the church should look like. However, in the Old Testament, it seems that there were a lot of rules and regulations when it came to the tabernacle.  Why do you think things changed?

Take Home:

  • Consider the bad experiences you have had with churches. Why were they bad experiences?  What makes this church different?

 

It's simple: we are the church, whether we are in the building or not! How can you bring the idea of Christ's church into your relationships or workplaces outside of this building?
