Our message this week – 2013 in Review – The Best Is Yet To Come

1.  As you look back at 2013 what are you most thankful for?

2.  How has God provided for you or for others around you in ways that you did not anticipate?

3.  How did God provide for you in response to your prayers or needs?

4.  Pastor shared that he views his intercession for us in prayer as even more important than his preaching of God’s message and His Word.

  • Who do you intercede for in prayer?

5.  Pastor shared the illustration of adding a leaf to a table and expanding room for guests and family. He also shared that scripture refers to pulling up the tent pegs so that a tent could be expanded to allow for more room under its covering and protection.
