Below are the discussion questions we will be reviewing in our study on Wednesday night (07/20/2016, 6pm at the church building). Please review the below and be prepared to discuss them this Wednesday. If you would like to read a summary of the sermon, or watch the video, please click here.

  1. Based on Hebrews 10:25, is it acceptable to occasionally miss Sunday morning service for work, vacation, a ballgame, etc (situations you can control)? Please explain your answer.
  2. Aside from it being commanded of us, what are some reasons we should be at Church services? These can be personal reasons or scripturally supported.
  3. Based on the verses Matt gave us on Sunday (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 4:15) how does your personal singing compare to how Christians sang in biblical times?
  4. Unfortunately, sermons can be boring sometimes. Think of some reasons we should pay attention anyway, and what benefits there might be for us.
  5. We were asked recently to try to be respectful and quiet five minutes before the services begin. Find a scripture or two to help you get in the proper frame of mind to worship. What else could help?
  6. James 5:16 states that the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. When was a time you felt your prayer, or others praying for you, was powerful?
  7. When do we have freedom to make changes in the worship service? What verses or principles guide us? For example: Do the number of songs or order matter? What if we decided not to sing at all? What about teaching, communion, etc.?
