  • Everything Is Meaningless Series

    Contributed by Jake Kircher on Nov 25, 2009
    based on 5 ratings
     | 7,109 views

    Solomon writes that "everything under the sun is meaningless." Why and what does that mean for our lives?

    Today, I want to ask ourselves the tough question of, how much do we actually pursue the love of God? To help us think about this issue, I want to start off with an activity that someone suggested to me this week. I’d like everyone to take a blank piece of paper which represents your life and take ...read more

    What is real worship? Let’s look back at the Temple and fast forward to our time and figure this thing out.

    ***Have hanging curtain in the room*** I want to quickly recap what we talked about last week and then are going to dive right in. (I know you guys probably want to know what this hanging sheet is for but you’ll have to wait and we’ll get to it in a few minutes.) Alright, so last week, we started ...read more

  • Animal Sacrifice, Foot Washing, And The Homeless Series

    Why should we serve? We have so many others things to do and to be at. Why should that be a priority?

    Back in November, I had the opportunity to go and see Rob Bell, the guy who does those Nooma videos (he’s also a pastor, speaker and author), speak at the Nokia Theatre in Times Square. What he talked about and explained was the idea of animal sacrifice that was so prevalent in Jewish culture and ...read more

    based on 3 ratings

    Justice or righteousness? Churches tend to pick one or the other. Which one did Jesus pick?

    To kick off our time together, I want to look at two words and talk about what comes to mind when you hear them. So, grab 4 or five people around you and gather into small groups and let’s start with the first word. When you hear the word “righteousness” what do you think about? What does the word ...read more

  • Reading The Bible Series

    Contributed by Jake Kircher on Mar 5, 2008
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,428 views

    Sometimes reading the Bible can be difficult. Why should we even read it? If if we convince ourselves to open it, where do we start.

    ***Open the time with all the lights out and the room completely dark. Begin to lightly toss stones up front so that the thud can be heard by the group*** The first five books of the Old Testament are called the Torah which is what the Jews look to as their Bible. The Hebrew word torah meant ...read more

  • The End Times

    The End Times can e really confusing and a little scary. Here are the nuts and bolts of Revelation and some helpful points to keep in mind.

    The End Times and the book of Revelations is something that I got really interested about back in High School. When I was a senior, one of my friends let me borrow a copy of the popular book called Left Behind which was a novel that followed an interpretation about how the world was going to end ...read more

     | 3,226 views

    Priorities are important in life. We need to think critically about what our priorities should be and work to live them out.

    I want to start off tonight by asking you guys to get into pairs and discuss the following question. “What are the top five priorities in my life?” ***Take a few minutes to share responses with the large group*** This issue of what are our priorities is such an important question for all of us ...read more

    How do you know you are a Christian? John’s third suggestion is called the Doctrine Test and focuses around knowing the Truth!

    Tonight we are going to dive right into our lesson for tonight. We’re continuing to look at John’s guides for answering the question, “How do you know if you are a Christian?” Rather than refresh our memories with what we have talked about the last couple of weeks now I want to wait and sum ...read more

  • The Social Test Series

    based on 1 rating
     | 918 views

    How do you know if you are a Christian? Well, John lays out three tests and one of them confronts our social lives. We are called to love our neighbor as ourselves...and we have a great teacher.

    We’re going to continue in our conversation this week looking at 1 John and more specifically, answering the question, “How do you know if you are a Christian?” Two week ago we started looking at how John answers this question and commented that in his letter, John puts out three tests or guides ...read more

    based on 4 ratings
     | 1,237 views

    How do you know if you are a Christian? Can you? Is it possible? John says yes in his letter and gives three ways that we can know we are "living in the light." The first is the Moral Test.

    We are going to continue on in 1 John tonight. Just to recap, two weeks ago we focused on God being the one constant in our lives. His relationship with us is the only thing that will never fail and never let us down. Last week, we talked about sin and that it is a reality that we all have to deal ...read more

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,055 views

    What is sin? God calls us away from a life of sin and darkness but instead to live in the light, as He is in the light.

    This week I wanted to start off briefly answering the question, why study the Bible? I know that my style of teaching is a little different than what some of you may be used to so I wanted to help you see where I am coming from. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful ...read more

  • The One Constant Series

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,230 views

    Too often in life, we are looking to so many things to be constant in our lives and support us. Money, family, friends, jobs, etc. The fact is, all of those things will fail us, only God remains.

    Tonight, I wanted to start off our time together by talking about being let down. This is something that has really been on my mind the last week as I have been experiencing a big let down personally. A few months ago, I thought everything was all taken care of and it would be a breeze the rest of ...read more

    based on 5 ratings
     | 2,561 views

    Too often, young people are told that they aren’t good enough, experienced enough, or educated enough. Meanwhile, talent and gifts are going unused.

    Tonight, I want to start right off by jumping into the Word and looking at a passage about a young boy being used by God in a big way. Let’s open our Bibles to 1 Samuel 16:1-13. ***Have a youth read 1 Samuel 16:1-13*** As we pick up our text, a man named Saul has been King of Israel. In fact, ...read more

    What is heaven going to be like in eternity? Three things that will be just perfect...

    Tonight, I want to build off of our conversation from last week as we talked about eternity. The main point last week was that eternity is not only a future matter but that it also a present matter. Not only are we physical creations of God but we are also spiritual creations as well. Likewise, the ...read more

    Is eternity only a future thing? No, it fact, it has already started. Which aspect of eternity are you displaying in your life on a daily basis?

    Tonight, I would like to spend some time together thinking about eternity. To help us begin to wrap our minds around this huge topic, I want to start off by just brainstorming what comes to mind when we see or hear this word. What comes to mind? What do you feel? ***Allow a few minutes to ...read more
