Today’s point: Loving God + Loving people = LIFE.

2. Give the greatest expression of love: time.
 
My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action. 1 John 3:18
 
Truly I tell you, Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:40 
 
3. Take advantage of opportunities to express love now.
 
Be full of love for others, following the example of Christ who loved you and gave himself to God as a sacfifice to take away your sins. Ephesians 5:2
 
The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Galatians 5:6
 
Your next steps today:
 
1) I will express love to my church family by attending faithfully.

The benefits of God’s family tree

Bulletin/Handout notes

 Original Message/Sermon:  Pastor Jeff Daws
 
From morning service at Stockbridge Community Church on 9/4/11.
 
(listen to sermon or make a donation at SCCview.Net)
 
Today’s point: Being in God’s family has benefits.
 
1. You are given through Jesus a new family name
 
You are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26b NLT
 
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:5-8 NIV
 
“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give some of the manna that has been hidden away in heaven. And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one understands except the one who receives it. Revelation 2:17 NLT
 
2. You have God’s family’s priveleges.
 
All honor to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is by his boundless mercy that God has given us the privilege of being born again. Now we live with a wonderful expectation because Jesus Christ rose again from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3 NLT
 
Baptism is the privilege of being identified with the family of God.
Church membership is the privilege of becoming a part of God’s local family.
Connect groups provide the privilege of friendship in the family of God.
 
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
 
My God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
 
3. You gain God’s family’s inheritance.
 
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:1-3 NIV
 
God will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain. These things of the past are gone forever. Revelation 21:4 CEV
 
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.  Colossians 3:23-24 NIV
 
Your next steps today:
 
1) I will receive Christ as my Savior that I may experience His cleansing & His Spirit’s power.
2) I will become fully engaged with the family of God by joining a Connect Group.
3) I will live in the light of eternity, not for retirement.

How to synchronize your family, and your church.

08/27/2011

Bulletin/Handout notes

 Original Message/Sermon: Pastor Ricky Mosel
 
From morning service at Stockbridge Community Church on 8/21/11.
 
(listen to sermon or make a donation at SCCview.Net)
 
“DOING LIFE IN ORANGE” Series (Part Three)
 
Today’s point:   Doing life together isn’t either/or; it’s both/and.
 
“It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, ‘Let me wash your face for you,’ when your own face is distorted by contempt? It’s this I-know-better-than-you mentality again, playing a holier-than-thou part instead of just living your own part. Wipe that ugly sneer off your own face and you might be fit to offer a washcloth to your neighbor. Luke 6:41-42 MSG
 
HOW TO SYNCH YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR CHURCH
 
1.) Kids need to be encouraged to ASK PARENTS FOR HELP in advancing their relationship with God.
 
Someday your children will ask, ” Why did the LORD give us these laws and teachings?” Deuteronomy 6:20 CEV
 
2.) Parents need to focus on working on ONE SMALL THING AT A TIME.
 
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 NKJV
 
“Have you forgotten how good parents treat children…Would you prefer an irresponsible God? We respect our own parents for training and not spoiling us, so why not embrace God’s training so we can truly live? While we were children, our parents did what seemed best to them. But God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God’s holy best.” Hebrews 12:5, 8-10 MSG
 
3.) The church needs to give families a plan, and teach them how to follow it.
 
–“There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human society, are created, strengthened, and maintained.”—-Winston Churchill
 
“I am the Real Vine and my Father is the Farmer. He cuts off every branch of me that doesn’t bear grapes. And every branch that is grape-bearing he prunes back so it will bear even more. You are already pruned back by the message I have spoken. John 15:1-3 MSG
 
“I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing.” John 15:5 MSG
 
SYNERGY: Two or more things functioning together to produce a result not independently obtainable. (Simply put in our situation: two of the three; parent, children, and church, working together to do something that not one of them could do alone.)
 
Your next steps today….
 
I will commit to synching my family with the church by….
 
a) Listening to my kids when they ask for help in understanding God.
b) Doing small things with them everyday that will show them God’s character in our family.
c) Partnering with the church & implemeting the plan they’ve shown me.
d) Giving my life to Christ and accepting Him into my life.

“How to keep your family on the right course”

08/20/2011

Bulletin/Handout notes

 Original Message/Sermon: Pastor Ricky Mosel
 
From morning service at Stockbridge Community Church on 8/14/11.
 
(listen to sermon or make a donation at SCCview.Net)
 
“DOING LIFE IN ORANGE” Series (Part Two)
 
Today’s point:  “The heart of God should be primarily communicated through the heart of the family.”
 
I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands. Exodus 20:6 NLT
 
 “Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Deuteronomy 6:4-6 NLT
 
HOW TO FULFILL YOUR FAMILY’S ROLE:
 
1. FOCUS your priorites on what matters MOST.
 
Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 MSG
 
2. PUT yourself FIRST when it comes to personal growth.
 
He also told them a parable: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher. Luke 6:39-40 ESV
 
3. PURSUE whatever your kids NEED to have an authentic relationship with them.
 
…we were like a mother feeding and caring for her own children. We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too. 1 Thessalonians 2:7-8 NLT
 
We loved you dearly. Not content to just pass on the Message, we wanted to give you our hearts. And we did. 1 Thessalonians 2:8 MSG
 
Your next steps today….
 
I will fullfill my family’s role today by….
 
a) Committing to influencing my kids to have an authentic relationship with God.
b) Giving my relationship with God top priority in my actions, my conversations, and my example.
c) Pursuing healthy interaction with my family on a consistent basis.
d) Offering my life to Christ and accepting Him into my life.
