Stupid Won’t Fix Stupid
View this week’s Sermon Notes

Memorize/Reflect:
How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” (Genesis 39:9)

Prayer Direction: Pray for eyes to see Satan’s tactics to tempt you…really ask God to help you identify specific ways the enemy comes against you. Ask the Spirit of God to give you power to resist or run!

“Live It!” Challenge – Joseph said no to temptation and then he did all he could to keep his distance. Identify one area of temptation where you are not keeping a safe distance and identify how you can build a stronger wall to help you from being enticed into behavior that does not honor God.

Growth Group Discussion: 
During this series we will be using the small group questions provided in the You’ll Get Through This study guide written by Max Lucado and Kevin and Sherry Harney. These can be purchased at a discount in the Shoreline Café. This guide will provide all the discussion materials for the next six weeks. If you can’t afford a copy of this and need one, please contact Jillian at growthgroups@shorelinechurch.org and we can loan you a copy for the six weeks of this series.

Operation Christmas Child | October 12 – November 16

On September 25, 2014, in Community Outreach, Featured-Auto, by Shoreline

Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.

You can help bring this Good News to a child by picking up a Christmas Box at the Operation Christmas Child booth starting October 12th. Then determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the child’s age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14 and mark the label. Next, fill your box with new items such as:

  • SCHOOL SUPPLIES: Pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons or markers, stamps and ink pad sets, writing pads or paper, solar calculators, coloring and picture books, etc.
  • TOYS: Small cars, balls, dolls, stuffed animals, kazoos, harmonicas, yo-yos, jump ropes, small Etch A Sketch, ® toys that light up or make noise (with extra batteries), Slinky, ® etc.
  • HYGIENE ITEMS: Toothbrush, toothpaste, mild bar soap (in a plastic bag), comb, washcloth, etc.
  • OTHER: T-shirts, socks, ball caps, sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewelry, watches, flashlights (with extra batteries)
  • A PERSONAL NOTE: You may enclose a note to the child and a photo of yourself or your family. (If you include your name and address, the child may write back.)
  • DO NOT INCLUDE: Used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives or military figures; chocolate or food; out- of-date candy; liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.

Please include at least one item a child can immediately embrace such as a stuffed toy, doll, ball or toy truck.

Place a rubber band around each closed shoebox and drop it off at Shoreline Community Church by November 16th.

Please don’t forget to donate $7 or more for each shoebox you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs. You can give online by using our “Follow Your Box Donation” option, or you can write a check to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the gift items inside your box. If you or your family are preparing more than one shoebox, please make one combined donation.

Thank you so much for your heart to help a child in a 3rd world country, to hear the Good News about Jesus Christ!

In His Name,
Debra Federico and Sharon Burwell

Down and Out But Never Alone
View this week’s Sermon Notes

Memorize/Reflect:
Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5 )

Prayer Direction: Sometimes in our darkest days, powerful feelings within scream out that we’re all alone. These feelings, while natural in times of great loss, hardship, suffering and confusion, are not telling the truth. God says he will never leave you! Choose to ask God to make his presence known to you. And, hard as it may be, “give thanks in all circumstances….” as an act of faith. He hears you and loves you!

“Live It!” Challenge: As you walk through this difficult time, please don’t walk alone. Reach out to brothers and sisters in the Family of Christ and ask them to pray for you, support you and encourage you. God ministers to his children through his children!

You’ll Get Through This
View this week’s Sermon Notes

Memorize/Reflect:
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.

(Isaiah 43:2)

Prayer Direction: Ask God to help you meet Him, even when you are “hitting the wall” and feeling like you might not be able to press onward. Ask for the power and presence of God to fill you when you are in the cisterns of life!

“Live It!” Challenge – Let God Handle It! : Reflect on Genesis 50:19-21 and Romans 12:17-21. Ask God to help you trust him to be judge and punish sin. If there is someone you are retaliating against because of past hurt, take action to show this person grace and stop seeking to hurt them back.
