SONG TITLE: ALIVE IN YOU

 

Verse 1
From beginning to the end
All my life is in Your hands
This whole world may hold me down
But it can never drown You out
I’m not merely flesh and bone
I was made for something more

 

Chorus
You are God
You’re the Great I AM
Breath of life I breathe You in
Even in the fire I’m alive in You
You are strong in my brokenness
Sovereign over ev’ry step
Even in the fire
I’m alive (I’m alive) in You

 

Verse 2
Through the dark I hear Your voice
Rising up I will rejoice
For I was lost but now I’m found
‘Cause even death can’t hold You down

 

Bridge
It’s no longer I who live
But Christ who lives within me
Christ who lives within me
From beginning to the end
You deserve the glory
You deserve the glory

SONG TITLE: THE LION AND THE LAMB

 

Verse 1
He’s coming on the clouds
Kings and kingdoms will bow down
And every chain will break
As broken hearts declare His praise
For who can stop the Lord Almighty

 

Chorus
Our God is the Lion
The Lion of Judah
He’s roaring with power
And fighting our battles
And every knee will bow before Him
Our God is the Lamb
The Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world
His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Every knee will bow before Him

 

Verse 2
So open up the gates
Make way before the King of kings
The God who comes to save
Is here to set the captives free
For who can stop the Lord Almighty

 

Bridge
Who can stop the Lord Almighty
Who can stop the Lord (Almighty)

SERMON NOTES with SCRIPTURE

SERMON TITLE: Generosity Over Scarcity

TEACHER:  Dr. Assad Saif

PASSAGE: 1 Kings 17

 

 

1 Kings 17:7-11
7 Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. 8 Then the word of the LORD came to him: 9 “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.” 10 So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, “Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?” 11 As she was going to get it, he called, “And bring me, please, a piece of bread.”

 

Something to consider: God sends people to other people to ask for help. (vv. 7-11)

 

____________________

 

1 Kings 17:12
12 “As surely as the LORD your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread—only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it—and die.”

 

The Problem: We fall victim to a scarcity mentality. (v. 12)

 

____________________

 

1 Kings 17:7-13-14
13 Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. 14 For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the LORD sends rain on the land.’”

The Answer (Main Point): Prioritize Generosity over Scarcity. (vv. 13-14)

 

____________________

 

1 Kings 17:15-16
15 She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family. 16 For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the LORD spoken by Elijah.

 

The Next Step (Challenge): Prioritizing Generosity requires faith and obedience. (vv. 15-16)

SERMON NOTES with SCRIPTURE

SERMON TITLE: Community over isolation

TEACHER:  Pastor Dan Vandewarker

PASSAGE: Acts 2:42-47

 

Acts 2:42-47 | New International Version

42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

 

The Problem: We choose isolation over community (2:42-43)

Main Idea: Sacrificial commonality creates spiritual community (2:44)

Observation: Generosity as a regular life rhythm (2:45)

Observation: Authentic hospitality (2:46-47a)

The Challenge: Become a part of our family (2:47b)
