Notes and Discussion Questions - What Is Faith?

PDF Notes and Discussion Questions, "What Is Faith?" by Greg Sidders

What Is Faith?

Listen to "What Is Faith?" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 05-31-15

Without it we cannot please God. With it we can move mountains. But what is it? Faith, yes. But what is that?
You may think you know, but have you ever thoroughly examined what the Bible says about faith? Does it involve or ignore reason? Is it a choice, or are some people just hard-wired for it? What exactly do we have to believe to be "in the faith"? And what do we have to stop believing?
Too much is at stake for us to have a fuzzy definition of faith. I hope you will see it with greater clarity after listening to this Sunday's message.

Notes and Discussion Questions - Worth Waking Up For

PDF Notes and Discussion Questions, "Worth Waking Up For" by Doug Erdmann

Worth Waking Up For

Listen to "Worth Waking Up For" by Doug Erdmann, Sunday, 05-24-15

"There is nothing quite as exhilarating as getting out of bed in the morning, going back into the world, and knowing why."
So said author Bill Hull, whose God-given passion overlaps with our speaker at White Pine this Sunday, Doug Erdmann. Doug and Joyce are White Pine partners who live in Singapore, where they equip disciples to reach Asia for Christ. Whenever they're on furlough, I ask Doug to share what he is learning with our church family. This weekend he is going to tell us three things that are worth waking up for every morning.

What Does Jesus Want?

Listen to "What Does Jesus want?" by Will Truesdell, Sunday, 05-17-15

If Jesus were to pray for White Pine Community Church, what would He ask for?
Actually, He did pray for us, over 2,000 years ago. And His prayer for those who would follow Him in the 21st century is recorded in John 17. This Sunday, Will Truesdell, our friend and partner in ministry from Intervarsity New England, will lead us in a study of this passage that reveals the heart of our Lord for His church, and His love for you.

PDF Notes and Discussion Questions, "True Beauty" by Greg Sidders

True Beauty

Listen to "True Beauty" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 05-10-15

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, what kind of woman is attractive to God?
I'm sure you know that He is attracted to the kind of beauty that is invisible to those who are fixated on the physical, but exactly what are the attributes that comprise true beauty? We'll find out this Sunday at White Pine as we celebrate the special women in our lives.  I hope it will be part of a memorable Mother's Day for you and your family.

True|False: Faith Is A Loophole

Listen to "True|False: Faith Is A Loophole" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 05-03-15

Do Christians get a free pass on the Day of Judgment?
We know that God will judge those who do not follow Jesus, but what about those who do? Will our earthly behavior have eternal consequences, or does our faith excuse us from accountability for our actions?
I'll bet you have an opinion on this topic. So does Jesus. Let's listen as He weighs in on this subject.
