Here are the discussion questions that accompany my message at Eastbrook Church this past weekend, “We’ll Leave the Light On: Becoming a Radically Welcoming Church.”
1. This week at Eastbrook Church, we conclude our “Pave the Way” series with a look at hospitality. When have you experienced such deep hospitality that the welcome touched your soul?
2. Explore the following Scripture passages and discuss the role that hospitality plays in Jesus’ ministry and teaching:
This coming weekend at Eastbrook Church, Pastor Marc Erickson will conclude our series, “Love Letters,” with a message on 3 John. I am really looking forward to this at multiple angles.
First, Marc brings such a wealth of insight from his years of studying the Bible and pastoral ministry. Second, Marc is a man of prayer and I know that he listens deeply to the Lord when he prepares a message and brings a message. Thirdly, Marc has been a tremendous mentor and encouragement to me as I have stepped into this role as the Senior Pastor of Eastbrook Church in the last year. Fourthly, I’ve never heard a message out of 3 John and Marc told me last night that he’s going to convince me this is the most important book in the Bible. What more could we want?!
We’d love it if you’d join us to worship the Lord this weekend on Saturday night or Sunday morning.
This next weekend at Eastbrook Church we are beginning a series entitled “Love Letters” on 1, 2, and 3 John.
The God who made us has a plan for our world. His plan centers in Jesus Christ, who really lived and who changed the course of human history. Jesus is the One who makes it possible to have true relationship with God and also with others. God’s plan is saturated with love and reshapes our daily lives at every level. Join us as we discover God’s plans from the letters of 1, 2, and 3 John.
