Pastor Nancy starts out with a prayer during the worship time: Do you need to be filled today with the hope and energy of the Holy Spirit?
Then our Youth Pastor Jared Wirtz shared (starting at the 5 minute mark) about the importance of looking at Scripture with a Think - Understand - Do perspective. Not just to read the Bible, but to think more deeply on it, endeavor to understand it, and then to do it -- to LIVE by it. All of this, with a heart understanding of the depth of God's love for us. Our thinking and doing may seem right, but without the depth of God's love for us, we still miss the heart of the Word. The main passages used were Hebrews 5:1-2, James 1:27, and Matthew 18:23-35.
