10.45am: This is Church!

At the Morning Gathering, Mick Woodhead looks at the beginning of 1 Thessalonians as we continue to look at a message for the local church and explore this year’s theme, Join Us in Building Community.

Bible base: 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

Cell questions:

  1. When you think of the word ‘church’ what comes to mind? Discuss.
    When your non church friends think of the word ‘church’ what do you think comes into their mind?
    Why the difference?
  2. Read the Bible passage above, what stands out to you? (If you have access to The Message version, read the passage in that version also.)
  3. The Message version has this phrase ‘You’re the Message!’ What do you think this means for you and our church at STC?

Pray for your midweek community; that you and our church at STC would live out ‘the Message’ of Jesus and more people would hear of Jesus!
