READY MINDS

Sunday, April 21:

Read: Genesis 22

As you read, note what you learn about who God is. Use the Bible reading/study tips below in your preparation for this week's sermon.

BIBLE READING/STUDY TIPS:

#1 Read Repeatedly: Reading a passage of Scripture repeatedly is key to understanding and applying the Bible. To learn more, read
10 Ways to Read the Bible on the Warren: A Way of Life blog.

#2 Read and Mark the Text: Print out the passage of Scripture, double-spaced, and use to mark up the text and make notes as you read. To learn more on marking the text and questions to ask as you read, take a look at Reading Thoughtfully, Reading Purposefully, and Reading Selectively in the blog post, 10 Ways to Read the Bible linked below.

#3 Questions to Ask When Reading Any Bible Passage

As you read the Scripture passage, seek the answer the following questions from the passage and surrounding text:

  • Who is involved in the passage?
  • What is happening? Where is this taking place?
  • Is there a problem or concern being addressed?
  • Do you see any repeated words or phrases? How do they help you understand the main point of the passage?
  • What questions does the text raise? Can you uncover any of the answers to these questions from the text? (Unanswered questions are okay. Pray through them and be patient with the text and yourself as you study.)
  • What do you learn about God, Jesus Christ, or the Holy Spirit from this passage?
  • What do you learn about redemption from this passage? What aspects of the redemption story are seen in this passage?

 

FOUNDATIONS:

Over the next year we will be guided through a series of 30 topics that will challenge us to not only know what we believe but will help us to internalize and verbalize our beliefs. Knowing God’s word takes training (1 Tim 4:6-9). Let us train to know God and make Him known. You'll find the weekly topic in the Group Study Guide available each week on this page and linked to each sermon message.

*Group Study Guides that complement the weekly sermon are available each week on Friday. See button link above.

*Weekly Interactive Guide is available for most messages and is posted on Sunday mornings on the Media page for that week's message.

READY HEARTS

Mission 1 Prayer Challenge

Who is your one? This is the question our pastor asked us to focus on this year as we seek to know God and make Him known. He has challenged us to identify one person, pray one prayer, have one conversation, and ultimately one celebration as our one accepts Christ.

As you identify your one and place his or her name on our prayer wall (located at our Welcome Center entrance), ask God to break through the walls of fear, doubt, pride, and rebellion and allow the Holy Spirit to minister, comfort, save, and redeem.

Over the course of this year, we will plead with God to infect our hearts with that which delights His heart—the joy that comes from a soul who finds his Creator and accepts His Son.

 

Praying for Our Nation in 2019

Join us as we pray for our nation, state by state, in 2019. Each week on the Pray for Our Nation page, you'll find a state to pray for and specific ways to pray for that state. You can also subscribe to our Warren Weekly e-newsletter for weekly updates.

 

WARREN WORSHIP SPOTIFY PLAYLIST

Prepare your heart through worship. Our Warren Worship Spotify Playlist contains the songs regularly sung in Sunday morning worship services at Warren. Worship through song all throughout your week!

READY FEET

Based on what you've read in this week's Scripture passage, is there something God is calling you to do?

In 2019 Pastor has encouraged us to pray for one person we might have an opportunity to have one conversation with to share the gospel—One person. One prayer. One conversation. One celebration. Seek the Lord this week as to who He would have you pray for and share the gospel with this year. #Mission1

How might God be calling you to prepare through giving this week?

We believe that giving for a believer is not a money issue; it is a heart issue. Knowing God as the Owner and Provider of all things, we use the resources He has provided each of us to help people and accomplish the purposes He has placed before us. Online Giving
