Week of February 25th

Special Event

March 1, 2019, evening…

Don’t forget that this Friday is our night at the movies. Because Landmark Cinemas has not posted upcoming showtimes yet, Pastor Asa will post to FB and text parents with the details for the evening. There will be adult supervision.


“The Apostle’s Creed”: Session Seven

Series graphic.jpg

NorthLife Youth is in a new video study by Matt Chandler. This 12 week series aims to strengthen our understanding of the essential convictions of the Christian church by using each line of The Apostles’ Creed to point us back to the gospel.

As always, we’ve included the entire Apostles’ Creed below, which is followed by Matt Chandler’s video for week six, which considers the phrase, “He ascended to heaven and sits on the right hand of the Father Almighty.” Thanks to Josh Samuel for leading our group study time!

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth,

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit;

born of the virgin Mary;

Suffered under Pontius Pilate;

was crucified, dead, and buried.

He descended to hell; the third day

He rose again from the dead;

He ascended to heaven and sits on the

right hand of the Father Almighty,

From whence He shall come to judge

the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

The holy catholic church,

the communion of saints,

The forgiveness of sins,

The resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.

 


Discussion Questions

Students can look for opportunities this week to work through the personal studies as well as answer these questions with their parents.

  1. READ ACTS 1:1-11
  2. What did the ascension, another historical fact, reveal to Jesus’ disciples?
  3. What specific instructions did Jesus give to the disciples? How do these
    instructions apply to us today?
  4. What did Matt mean when he used the term holy discontentment?
  5. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being not at all and 10 being wholeheartedly),
    how seriously do you take sin in your life? How hungry are you for
    righteousness? Explain your answers.
  6. What would it take for you to increase your desire for righteousness
    instead of for sin?
  7. How can we be more aware of Christ’s presence in our lives even
    though we do not physically see Him?
  8. Jesus promised that He has not abandoned us. In what way is the
    ascension a turning point in the life of the church? Why did Jesus say
    His ascension benefits His followers?
  9. What comfort is there in the statement: we are not yet what we will be?
  10. When have you been encouraged by knowing you weren’t the only
    person who has had certain thoughts or experiences? Who may need
    encouragement from you, knowing your past or present weaknesses?
