Sacred Storm is an ongoing graphic dramatization of the invisible battle that surrounds each one of us. Sacred Storm: Final Exam highlights one person’s struggle to find truth on a college campus.
Productions will take place March 25-28, and all times on Saturday and Sunday will be broadcast online. For more information, times and directions, visit sacredstorm.org.
During all Sacred Storm service times, our children’s ministry will present “The Mystery of the Empty Tomb.” For more information, check out sacredstorm.org/kids.
I Want The Blessings
1. Pastor Chris told a story of the junk cars that needed to be prayed out of his life. What junk needs to be prayed out of your life?
2. How would your life be different, or the same, if there were both extravagant getting and giving?
3. How does the principle of sowing and reaping effect your thoughts on giving? Give an example where you gave a lot and you subsequently reaped a lot.
4. Have you ever found yourself in financial bondage? What did it take for you to surrender to God’s plan?
5. In Hebrews 11, it says, “faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Share a story of when God moved when you expressed faith in something hoped for but not seen. How does this scripture speak to us about money?
6. Malachi 3:10-11 speaks about giving tithes and God’s return blessings. How will you test God with your giving?
Join us this weekend as we begin a two-week sermon series entitled Stocks and Bonds.
10% Tithe – Blount County
1. What have you been through that was tough at the time for which you are now thankful?
2. Pastor Chris spoke about Hebrews 12 where it talks about running the race with endurance while keeping our eyes on Jesus. What does this mean? What does this mean to you in your current circumstances?
3. What steps of faith are required as we begin taking steps into launching a new campus in Blount County? What does this mean to you personally?
4. Moving forward requires change. What will you have to think of differently as Faith Promise moves to Blount County? Technology? My role? The role of the Pastor? The importance of proximity to the unchurched?
5. In the Book of Joshua, the priests of Israel shouted God’s blessings and curses from the mountain tops over the people. Share a praise report. How is God shouting blessing more audibly in your life right now?
Coming To A Location Near You
1. What are some of your branches in your own life that are producing fruit? What are some of your branches that need to be pruned, because they are not producing fruit?
2. Pastor Chris said the lost matter more. Who, in your life, are the lost? What are doing to reach them?
3. What has God ask you to do? What must He do that only He can do in order for you to be successful?
4. What about what Wayne & Angie Burress would make you nervous? What about it is exciting to you?
5. How do you put yourself in a position to be used by God? What role can you play specifically as Faith Promise launches the Blount County campus?
Don’t just be a 20-something, DO-something. This weekend experience is specifically designed to help all 20-somethings discover and take the next step, regardless of where that step might lead.
