What Can You Do? Sermons Sermon Series Page Video Audio Notes

As you probably know, church is changing. Surveys show people have a greater interest in spiritual things than ever. However, they are less interested in traditional church than ever. Is this a bad thing? To me it’s a good thing. This is why I was born. To me, this is why our church exists. This should be our finest hour.

Circles are Better than Rows pt 1 – sermon video audio rows

Circles are better than rows. What I specifically mean is connect in one of our small groups. Here’s what you need to understand. Small groups are the essence of the Christian experience. I heard it said this way, “Circles are better than rows.” What does that mean? The ESSENCE of the Christian experience is circling up connected, not sitting in rows looking at me. It’s better to look at one another in a circle than in a row looking at me. It’s in our What Can You Do sermon series.

Connect pt 2 – Small Groups – sermon video audio notes

We need both circles and rows. Jesus did both. Why? It’s the most powerful way to maximize and connect with God. Church in the New Testament did both. The New Testament teaches both and we can’t really do one well without doing the other. In fact, we’re not really having church unless we do both. Church must be both for maximum power to connect with God. If you’ve ever done both, you know. It’s in our What Can You Do sermon series.

Serve on a Team – sermon video audio notes

A church is successful not because of a preacher. It’s because people serve on a team. Though entitled to their time, their money, their abilities, their empowerments, they have taken what they are entitled and instead of using it for themselves, used it to serve others. They, as it were, wash our nasty feet every week so we can come and enjoy a good meal at God’s table. It’s in our What Can You Do sermon series.

Give a Percentage pt 1 – sermon video audio notes

Those of you who purposefully give a percentage off the top have no idea what you have done. You have powerfully made a difference not because of horror stories that happened and someone told, but because of the horror stories that never happened at all. That’s the power of purposeful percentage giving. It’s in our What Can You Do sermon series.

Give a Percentage pt 2 – sermon video audio notes

In God’s economy we give a percent to the place of worship for prevention. There is a percentage given to ourselves and there is a percentage giving to alms. The best part of our giving for me is not I fulfill the commands of the scriptures. It’s I get to partnership with God in the greatest work ever – kingdom work. It’s in our What Can You Do sermon series.

Invite A Friend – sermon video audio notes

Invite a friend. Few people come to church the first time you invite them. People are, for some reason, programmed to say no when invited to church. Most of us said no the first time we were invited. So, realize you are beginning a process. Don’t give up. Every time you see them, mention something about church. It could take years. Remember, one day they will need God. When that day comes, you want to be the first person who comes into their mind. It’s in our What Can You Do sermon series.
