Public Assemblies, Prayer,
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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?
- Unfortunately, sermons can be boring sometimes. Think of some reasons we should pay attention anyway, and what benefits there might be for us.
- 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?
- 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?
- 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.?
