New things beginning THIS weekend!

Get ready for a fresh filling, Promisors!

God is on the move, and At the Movies was only the beginning. We hosted many new families, achieved new attendance records, and most importantly, witnessed more than one hundred salvations and baptisms across our campuses in August!

This weekend, we step into the Empty Spaces of fear and insecurity in our lives to discover how to fill those spaces with potential and purpose.

Also starting this weekend, we’re launching our all-new Next Steps. This is a four-week experience to help you move forward in your walk with Christ, and it is available at every campus.

Sign up here, or show-up at 11:30 am at your campus (Pellissippi campus has an additional offering on Saturdays at 6:15 pm), and see for yourself!

Get In and Get On God’s New Rivers and Roads for this next season at Faith Promise, and be a part of something new and something supernatural.

Love you, and see you this weekend!

At the Movies: The Greatest Showman – Discussion Guide

Getting Started

Main Idea:
God’s real love is everything you want and everything you need.

Discussion Starter:
Name a “want” you have right now, and name a “need.”

Introduction:

Watch this brief intro together with your group (click picture below):

This weekend, we explored how the world divides itself into an “IN” ring, where those inside enjoy privilege and fortune, and an “OUT” ring, where it is clear that those inside “don’t belong.”

We need a new ring, the third ring of this 3-ring circus, filled with real love where there is true celebration of God’s creation in all its brokenness and beauty. We need to return to the Creator who made us, to the Father who loves us, and to a Savior who longs to walk with us in the way we’ve always wanted. He alone is the Greatest Showman, because His forgiveness, mercy, and sacrifice is all we will ever need, and it is on offer to all who call on His name!


Encounter God

Primary Scriptures: Genesis 1:26-27, Matthew 11:25-30

Discussion Questions:
1. Read Genesis 1:26-27. God spent the first 5 1/2 days creating the universe, planet, heavens, vegetation, and living creatures in preparation for His final creation: humanity. To whom was God referring when He used the pronouns “Us” and “Our”?

2. Discuss what it means to be created in the image of God. How does this differ from the rest of creation? How does this perspective impact your view of God? How does it impact your view of yourself?

3. Read Matthew 11:25-26. Jesus encountered the “IN” crowd, many of which were “intellectuals” that stubbornly did not believe in Him or were indifferent. He shares in these verses true wisdom. What was hidden from the “IN” crowd? What kind of people made up the “OUT” crowd? Why is this important?

4. Read Matthew 11:28-30. Who did Jesus have in mind when He extended this invitation? What kinds of burdens are people carrying today?

5. How does this invitation speak to you? In what ways are you weary or burdened?

6. Is there someone in your life who needs the true inner rest found in Jesus? How will you pray for them? How will you ask God for the wisdom and courage to speak to them and share where true relief from life’s burdens can be found?

7. What does Jesus say we must do to find rest?

8. In Jesus’ day, the Jews were yoked to an unbearable system of laws. It was a heavy load, and they were bruised by it, but remember, Jesus was a carpenter! He could fashion a yoke that fit perfectly so that the animals yoked together would share the burden and not be hurt. How does Jesus’ yoke work in the life of a Christ follower?

Discovery Bible Method:
For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Matthew 11:25-30 and use the Discovery Bible Method to explore the passage.


Embrace Others

This week, our focus was on real love being everything you want and everything you need. In small groups of 2 or 3, discuss and encourage one another on how you can share with others where true satisfaction and real love in life is found–only in Jesus Christ.


Engage the World Around Us

Engaging at Faith Promise:
Pray as a group to explore ways you can show the real love of Jesus Christ as you serve our church family.

Engaging in Community and the World:
We learned this week about the the 3 ring circus: the “IN” crowd and the “OUT” crowd the world has defined, and the new ring of life in Christ to which all are welcome. In Jesus Christ, believers are accepted, forgiven, and fully and perfectly loved. Consider how you as a group could help local or international organizations embrace the privilege of reaching out and showing the love of Christ to others. Who is God calling your group to bring into His ring?


Expand God’s Kingdom

In Jesus’ call for the weary and burdened to come to Him, under His yoke, He is offering true freedom. Christ followers know true freedom can only be found in Jesus Christ, never in self-rule or self-sufficiency. We are freed from trying to be what we can never be. We are free to fulfill the plan God has perfectly ordained for each of us, and to live in forgiveness and restoration of His grace. He longs to bring us out of the dark so that we can be filled with hope, joy, freedom and purpose. With whom will you share this truth this week?


Leader’s Notes

1. The Trinity, the mystery of 3 persons in 1. Although this is not fully and clearly revealed until the New Testament, the Hebrew noun used here is plural, and the verb used for “create” is singular. For additional support, Deuteronomy 6:4 includes both plural and singular nouns: “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one!” The “Lord” (Yahweh) here is singular, and “God” (Elohim) is plural.
2. We are God’s highest creation, made in God’s image, which means every person is made a personal, moral, spiritual, responsible being with a capacity no animal has, and that is to worship, love and serve God. Knowing the Creator of the universe, the Almighty desires to have a relationship with us is overwhelming and amazing. See Psalm 8:4.
3. God revealed the truth of the gospel to the “infants,” those with childlike faith. These were people who were not impressive according to the world’s standards. They were not intellectuals; they did not hold high positions or qualifications. Salvation does NOT belong to the strong or to those who think they can earn it. It is all of grace. Knowledge of God comes ONLY through the Son for those who believe and come to Him. Through the weak, God’s saving gospel would extend to the world.
4. Jesus extends His invitation to ALL who are weary and burdened. Answers will vary, but may include: People are burdened with guilt over their sin. Satan relentlessly accuses God’s people, in an effort to cause confusion over the vast nature of God’s grace and love. People are also weary from working at religion in an effort to please God and gain His approval.
5. Answers will vary.
6. Answers will vary.
7. Yoke ourselves to Him and learn from Him.
8. We can trust that Jesus has created a perfectly-fitting yoke for each of our lives and for our uniquely ordained purpose. We do not carry the load alone; we were made to be yoked together with Jesus, who shoulders our burdens. See 2 Corinthians 12:9-11; John 7:37; Philippians 4:13.

ALL groups at Faith Promise should follow Jesus Christ and lead others to do the same. Below are the marks of a growing follower and disciple of Jesus.

– A follower of Jesus desires to encounter God through the deeper study and application of God’s Word.

– A follower of Jesus embraces people and values relationships on a deeper level so everyone can grow together.

– A follower of Jesus engages and serves the world around them and in their community, through local partners or God-directed opportunities.

– A follower of Jesus expands God’s Kingdom through development and multiplication of disciple-makers, possibly to lead more groups at Faith Promise.

 

At the Movies: Jumanji – Discussion Guide

Getting Started

Main Idea:
Surviving the jungle is only possible together and with His help.

Discussion Starter:
What is your favorite board game? When you play a new game, do you read all of the instructions first, or do you dive right in and figure it out as you go?

Introduction:

Watch this brief intro together with your group (click picture below):

For your next study, consider starting with Week 1 of “I Am Faith Promise!

Or sign-up to go through the new Next Steps together as a group!


Encounter God

Primary Scriptures: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, Acts 2:1-4, Acts 4:31, John 14:18, 27

Discussion Questions:

1.  Alan and Sara begin their game of Jumanji without thoroughly reading all the directions. Have you ever felt like you were handed the game of life without knowing all the rules? How does God’s Word function as a guide in your life?

2. Alan became trapped in the game because Sara didn’t take her turn. Just like in the game of Jumanji, in the game of life we benefit from other people playing the game with us. Read Ecclesiastes 4:9-12. How have you experienced this verse in your life and within your group?

3. Judy and Peter request Alan’s help to finish the game of Jumanji, because he knows his way around the jungle. As Christians, we have God the Father who created our jungle, God the Son who experienced our jungle as a human, and God the Holy Spirit who guides us through the jungle today. Read Acts 2:1-4. What do you notice about the believers who received the Holy Spirit? How have you experienced the Holy Spirit in your life?

4. Read Acts 4:31. Again, notice that the believers were not alone. How has the Holy Spirit given you boldness? If you do not feel bold, pray as a group that God would fill you all to speak the Word of God with boldness in your own lives and in the lives of others.

Discovery Bible Method:
For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Acts 2 and use the Discovery Bible Method to explore the passage. If you are pressed for time, focus on verses 1-4, and 42-47.


Embrace Others

Suggestion: Consider breaking the group into dyads or triads for this section.

In Jumanji, Alan was alone in the jungle for 26 years, Sara felt isolated, and Judy and Peter were orphaned. Which character do you identify with the most? Why?

Read John 14:18 and 27. Pray for God’s peace and comfort for each other.


Engage the World Around Us

Engaging at Faith Promise: Is your group serving at Faith Promise? Some groups are serving all together in a single ministry, while other groups are composed of members serving a variety of different ministries. Have those in your group who are serving share what they love about their current ministry.

Engaging in Community: Schedule a prayer walk with your group. Find time to walk around your neighborhood or a local school campus and pray for the people who live, learn, and work there.

Engaging the World: Pray for our Faith Promise missionaries serving far from home. To learn about those from Faith Promise serving around the world you can download our 2017 Missions Magazine and view the “Adopt a Missionary” article.


Expand God’s Kingdom

Next week is our final week of At the Movies, featuring “The Greatest Showman.” Invite some friends to watch the movie this week and then come next weekend to see how we connect faith and film to share God’s real love.


Leader’s Notes

2. Use this question to brag on your group members! Call them out and praise them for building each other up. We can all use encouragement and praise for what we are doing right.

3. Points of note: the believers were gathered together; ALL of them were filled with the Holy Spirit.

ALL Faith Promise groups follow Jesus Christ and lead others to do the same. Below are the marks of a growing follower and disciple of Jesus.

– A follower of Jesus desires to encounter God through the deeper study and application of God’s Word.

– A follower of Jesus embraces people and values relationships on a deeper level so everyone can grow together.

– A follower of Jesus engages and serves the world around them and in their community, through local partners or God-directed opportunities.

– A follower of Jesus expands God’s Kingdom through development and multiplication of disciple-makers, possibly to lead more groups at Faith Promise.

 

At the Movies: Aladdin – Discussion Guide

Getting Started

Main Idea:
It’s not what is happening on the outside, but what is happening on the inside that matters.

Discussion Starter:
Have you ever felt trapped? Perhaps by a job you dreaded going to every morning or a class you felt wasn’t worthwhile. Maybe you were trapped in a relationship, or an illness or disability kept you from achieving your desires and finding peace. Share with your group how this experience and feeling trapped affected you.

Introduction:
Watch this brief intro together with your group (click picture below):

This week Faith Promise continues in At the Movies with Disney’s Aladdin. Aladdin and Jasmine both feel trapped in their circumstances, while Genie is physically trapped in his lamp. Disney capitalized on a feeling common to the human condition: God put in us an innate desire for the perfection He created in the Garden of Eden, and as humans we often believe the lie that if we can just achieve the right circumstances then that perfection will be ours again. God has a better life in store for us, but the way to this new life is through placing our faith within on our Creator above, rather than a change of circumstances on the outside.


Encounter God

Primary Scriptures: 1 Samuel 16:7, Mark 5:25-43

Discussion Questions:
1. Aladdin wishes for the Genie to make him a prince, but ultimately this doesn’t make him happy because it is not who he truly is. Read 1 Samuel 16:7. How have you been deceived by the appearances of others or deceived yourself based on outward appearances or circumstances? What steps can we take to stay grounded in God’s truth about who we are?

2. When have you treated God like a genie in a bottle? Maybe you prayed to get out of a speeding ticket or to do well on a test for which you didn’t study. What does real faith ask for, hope for, and believe in?

3. Read Mark 5:25-43. This woman pursued healing for years and from different doctors. However, when in the presence of Jesus, she had faith that if she could just touch him, she would be healed. How has God’s presence changed your life?

Discovery Bible Method:
For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Mark 5:21-43 and use the Discovery Bible Method to explore the passage.


Embrace Others

Suggestion: Consider breaking the group into dyads or triads for this section.

Do you identify more with the woman in Mark 5 approaching Jesus without wanting to be seen, or do you identify with the father who begs for help at Jesus’ feet? Why? Is one approach better than the other?

What circumstances have you been treating as a trap? Could God be working within and preparing you for something through these external circumstances?


Engage the World Around Us

Engaging at Faith Promise: Where are you serving in ministry at Faith Promise? Have you tried serving and found that you didn’t fit in that area (like Aladdin in prince’s clothing)? Try again! Commit as a group to go through the new Next Steps together.

Engaging in Community: Where will your group serve this fall in the community? Visit https://faithpromise.org/love-local to find local ministry opportunities where you can serve as a group or individually.

Engaging the World: Visit https://faithpromise.org/missions to see ministry opportunities a bit farther from home. Some mission trips are as close as Kentucky, while others are are far away as South Africa! If you are not interested in going on a mission trip, consider supporting those who do go both financially and in prayer.


Expand God’s Kingdom

At the Movies continues next week with Jumanji. Bring a friend to experience God’s real love using faith and film!


Leader’s Notes

1. Emphasize the reading of God’s Word to see who God says that we are. Are your group members participating in the yearly Bible reading plan, or some other Bible reading plan? Consider having group members hold each other accountable for staying grounded in God’s Word. Also, you may discuss spiritual mentors.

2. This question may be too direct to ask out loud of your group members, but this is the meat of the discussion that might follow question 2: Do our actions or prayers suggest an underlying belief that God exists to fulfill all of our desires? Discuss why this belief is false and how to combat the lie.

ALL groups at Faith Promise should follow Jesus Christ and lead others to do the same. Below are the marks of a growing follower and disciple of Jesus.

– A follower of Jesus desires to encounter God through the deeper study and application of God’s Word.

– A follower of Jesus embraces people and values relationships on a deeper level so everyone can grow together.

– A follower of Jesus engages and serves the world around them and in their community, through local partners or God-directed opportunities.

– A follower of Jesus expands God’s Kingdom through development and multiplication of disciple-makers, possibly to lead more groups at Faith Promise.

At the Movies: Black Panther – Discussion Guide

Getting Started

Main Idea:
In Black Panther a young king struggles to find the right path for his people–a struggle that can be compared to seeking how to share the gospel of the real love of Jesus Christ.

Discussion Starter:
Why do people hide or not share their beliefs and faiths with those around them? Are these good reasons or just excuses?

Introduction:
Watch this brief intro together with your group (click picture below):

Black Panther’s King T’Challa was devoted to his country Wakanda and his people, while at the same time, he wanted to help people in the world around him. Some might share this conflict about about being too outside-focused, instead of having more inside-focused Bible studies, groups, and activities. In reading Scripture we find that one of our foremost responsibilities as a Christ-follower is to tell about and demonstrate how much God loves people.


Encounter God

Primary Scripture: Matthew 7:15-24, Revelation 2:2-7

Discussion Questions:
1. Why does the pursuit of a deeper understanding of the Word sometimes lead people to think that telling people about Jesus is less important?

2. Why is it so important for followers of Christ tell others of Him?

3. Read Revelation 2:2-7. The angel wrote to the church in Ephesus that God is aware of the good things they have done. However, God wants them to also listen and obey and do what they did at first. What lost first love is God talking about?

Discovery Bible Method:
For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Ephesians 2:1-10 and use the Discovery Bible Method to explore the passage.


Embrace Others

Suggestion: Consider breaking the group into dyads or triads for this section.

Read Ephesians 4:20. Is it better to be silent than to say something harsh in anger?


Engage the World Around Us

Engaging at Faith Promise: What kind of ministry could you work in that would challenge you to grow?

Engaging in Community: Is there an area in your community where your group could accomplish more than you could alone?

Engaging the World: Read Colossians 3:12-14. How can your group live out this Scripture?


Expand God’s Kingdom

Young King T’Challa had several advisors; his mother, friends, other relatives, and older members of the community who advised him on the nation’s course. T’Challa listened to them all, as well as to his own heart and mind. How are you leading others to see and live out God’s will in their own lives?


Leader’s Notes

ALL groups at Faith Promise should follow Jesus Christ and lead others to do the same. Below are the marks of a growing follower and disciple of Jesus.

– A follower of Jesus desires to encounter God through the deeper study and application of God’s Word.

– A follower of Jesus embraces people and values relationships on a deeper level so everyone can grow together.

– A follower of Jesus engages and serves the world around them and in their community, through local partners or God-directed opportunities.

– A follower of Jesus expands God’s Kingdom through development and multiplication of disciple-makers, possibly to lead more groups at Faith Promise.

At the Movies is Here!

Welcome back, Promisors!

It’s back to school and back to the movies at Faith Promise as we kick off the fall season!

Throughout August, we will once again combine faith and film to challenge everyone to encounter Jesus in a whole new way. So, make sure to invite everyone you know to join us at one of our campuses or online for Black Panther, Aladdin, Jumanji, and The Greatest Showman.

Every week will be an incredible experience you and your family won’t forget, as each week promises a reason to not miss a moment.

This weekend we begin with Black Panther and a Connection Weekend for everyone looking to take their next step in growing together through one of our four kinds of groups.

In week two, we continue the popcorn, sodas, and full At the Movies experience in one of my personal favorites, Aladdin.

We continue in week three with Jumanji and will give away a brand new Faith Promise T-shirt to everyone in attendance that weekend. But, if you want to get your hands on it, you’ll have to be here!

In the fourth week, we will wrap At the Movies with The Greatest Showman and a baptism weekend to celebrate all God has done. Let’s Tell Them of Him all month long, Promisors, and party like never before as real people with real problems find real love!

Starting next month, we will begin offering weekly Next Steps to help you or anyone new take their next step in finding God’s real love.

Let me challenge you to take your next step this month:

  • Get In the Water and acknowledge God publicly in baptism,
  • Get In the Word and begin a devotional time with the Lord in the Bible,
  • Get In the Weekend and begin making Faith Promise weekends a priority,
  • Get In A Group and join the disciple-making community,
  • Get In a Ministry and begin using your gifting to serve others,
  • Get In on Generosity and begin giving, tithing, or preparing for Heart for the
    Harvest this fall,
  • or Get Others In by bringing people to At the Movies.

Let’s continue praying for a fresh move of God to start at Faith Promise and keep getting in and getting on His new rivers of provision and roads of vision this year!

Love you and see you this weekend!
Pastor
