HOME CHURCH 5/31/2020

Welcome to week eleven of SBC Home Church!

This week, we’re looking at Philippians 3:12-16.  Paul is going to encourage us to press on towards the goal:  Jesus Christ. How are you growing spiritually during this pandemic? Our prayer is that you would be encouraged by Paul’s focus and press on towards Christ this week.

Before you click the link below, have someone read Philippians 3:12-16 and open in prayer.

(Parents – While watching the sermon, ask your children to draw a picture of someone racing to a finish line. If you have little ones, write “Jesus” in block letters and let them color it during the message.) 

Discuss The Word

  1. What is your favorite exercise? Explain. (What is your favorite way to get your muscles working?)
  2. What goals are you pursuing right now? (What is the one thing you want to do everyday & why?)
  3. How do our goals compare/contrast to what Paul says in Philippians 3? (Do the things we want to do everyday match up with what God wants us to do?)
  4. Describe your spiritual walk. What are you doing to grow spiritually? (Parents share your experiences. Then ask, “what are some ways you have been loving this week?)
  5. What things do you need to leave behind to press on towards Jesus Christ? (What takes your attention away from spending time with Jesus?)
  6. For you to press on towards Jesus, how can we pray for you specifically so that you can press on? (Pray together, as a family, that you would focus on spending time with Jesus this week.)

Practice The Word

  1. Memorize Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”
  2. Take Action: Make a list of areas in your life that need to be more Christ-like.
  3. Connect with someone: Call a close friend and/or relative and share the items on your take action list; seek accountability and close in prayer.

Pray The Word

  1. Read Hebrews 12:1-2 and pray daily that you would run this race focused on Jesus.
  2. Pray for government officials and church leaders as they make difficult decisions about how to move forward toward gathering again.

Ways to Give

Giving of our finances is a response of worship to God who created us, saved us, and is continually at work in the lives of each of His children to reflect more and more of the character of Jesus Christ. Giving is an opportunity to respond to the gospel of Christ in a way that we can find our hearts freed to reflect the generous heart of God:

2 Corinthians 9:7-8 “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”

We will continue to keep everyone updated regarding our gatherings. If you have any questions, concerns, or needs, please contact any staff member or elder:
