Word of Caution for Parents:
You don't have to be around our church very long before hearing ways we intentionally support the reality that parents are the primary faith nurturers of their children. We encourage you to prepare-event-debrief (P-E-D) with your children to foster that relationship and set them up for success.
With this in mind, one way we want to support you as you lead your family is to let you know when a sermon topic may not be appropriate for young ears or developing hearts. This sermon will be covering Judges chapters 19-21. While children are more than welcome to participate in normal services, we encourage you to read the passage for this sermon ahead of time and discern whether or not you'd want your child to listen to it.
Examine your heart for God. Would you say your heart is alive, numb, or mostly dead toward God? Explain your answer to a trusted friend.
In Samson’s life we see many sinful issues: pride, lust, anger, vengeance, complacency, rejection of God’s call. Are any of these causing your heart to drift from God? If so, make this a matter of repentance and process. Ask God to realign your heart so you rely on Him and live from a heart aligned with the will of God for your life.
