Eyes Wide Open: Have You Dumped Your Dreams?

Have You Dumped Your Dreams

1. Who has helped, or is helping, you achieve your dreams?

2. Pastor Chris shared if our dreams don’t include God or others, they are too small. How does this statement make you feel?

3. Who is your current dream manager? Who has been a dream manager for you in your past? How many dream managers do you currently have?

4. What are your dreams … for your family? for your job? for your legacy?

5. Pastor Chris said dreams are not the same as fantasies. What you doing to make your dreams a reality?

6. Who can you help achieve his or her dreams? Your spouse? Your child? Your coworker? What can you do this week to begin fulfilling a dream?

Eyes Wide Open

Not all dreams happen while we’re sleeping. You may have aspirations of a different job, traveling the world, or new relationships, but we all have things we long for. Sometimes our dreams are pure, other times they’re not. Join us over the next few weeks as we consider how to approach our dreams with eyes wide open.

Baptism Weekend

The Bible demonstrates the importance of people following the example of Jesus in baptism, and people are baptized nearly every weekend at Faith Promise.  A couple of weekends a year, we focus on the topic and give people the opportunity to respond on the same day.

This Mother’s Day weekend was one of those baptism-focused days.  Pastor Chris taught on the importance of spiritual markers, and people responded in a huge way.  Just this weekend, 110 people followed Christ in baptism!  What an amazing weekend!

Please join us in praying for those who took this important spiritual next step – that God will use them powerfully as they live for Him.

First Wednesday & Family Series

I want to remind you that on Wednesday, May 5, we will have our monthly First Wednesday service beginning at 6:30 pm.  I am really looking forward to having an evening of extended worship, hearing from God’s Word and sharing the Lord’s Supper with all of you.  Let’s fill up the Worship Center with praises as we celebrate what our amazing Savior has done for us!  If you’re not able to join us in person, you can still join us online as we broadcast live on our Internet Campus.

This coming weekend, May 8-9, we will wrap up our life-changing family series, “Help! My Family Is Crazy!” with a special sermon about mothers and the impact they have on their families.   Bring your family and friends and join us as we look at some of the godliest moms in the Scriptures and learn the importance of having a firm foundation.

Can’t wait to see you!

Love,

Pastor Chris

Help! My Family is Crazy!: The Grass Is Not Greener

The Grass Is Not Greener

1. What are your personal experiences with divorce?

2. Pastor Chris stated that “we are the result of our decisions” and that “good or bad, all our decision will have consequences”. What is one of your bad decisions and the resulting consequences? What is one of your good decisions and the resulting consequences?

3. Pastor Chris provided the order for our focus and priorities as 1) God 2) spouse 3) children. What challenges do you anticipate or have you faced with your priorities in this order? How will Satan attack you with obstacles, distractions, or hindrances in your day to day life or in life’s major decisions and issues? How should you be prepared to respond to Satan and those challenges?

4. Pastor Chris stated that children need love, discipline, and time. What are your experiences with these growing up and how did it help shape you? If you were to evaluate these three items in relation to you and your children, which is the easiest or hardest for you and why? How could you improve on these areas if you committed yourself to do so?

5. Pastor Chris spoke about fresh starts, clearly communicating at home, parental packs, and making Jesus Lord of your home. Pick one of these and discuss your personal experiences as well as how your experiences have shaped your current relationships with either your parents or your children.
