Preaparing for Palm Sunday TODAY
On Sunday, March 18th, we hosted our Youth Sunday where our teenagers helped in leading in every part of our service: worship, communion, offering and even our Sunday morning talk. Take Sunday’s talk home and also prepare for this coming Sunday’s celebration for Palm Sunday:
Taking Today’s Talk Home:
*Read Proverbs 16:9.
**Think about the different ways our youth were involved in today’s service: worship, communion, offering and our Sunday morning talk. What encouraged you the most? What challenged you the most? Take a moment and pray for our youth group and thank God for how you were encouraged and challenged.
***Pray about today’s theme: God can use you. What thoughts come into your mind when you consider that statement? What ways do you see God using you now? How would you like to be used by God going forward? Take some time this week and thank God for how you see Him using you now and ask Him for guidance and direction in new ways that you can be used by Him.
Prayer Focus for the Week:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for our Youth Group. Thank you for the many ways I was encouraged and challenged by our Youth Sunday. Lord, protect their hearts and their minds as they seek You. Give them good, solid friendships and help them discover Your truth for their lives. I want to be a constant example to them of Your grace and love in my life, not a constant critic. I want to be used by You. As I seek You and read Your Word, direct my path.
In Jesus’ Name…Amen.
Preparing for NEXT Sunday:
Next Sunday on Sunday, March 25th we celebrate Palm Sunday! This holiday commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, which is recorded in all four Gospels in the New Testament. What thoughts come into your mind when you think of Jesus Christ being our ‘King’? This week, think about what it means to be in service of Jesus Christ our King. Next week, we will examine our place in God’s Kingdom and we will also welcome our children in our service as they take part in our Palm Sunday celebration.
