The Sunday Set-Up for May 11, 2014

Not only is this Sunday Mother's Day, but it's also the Sunday that the Students bring The DEAL (our student worship service) downstairs and share our worship with the rest of the church. We are looking forward to you experiencing The DEAL. As a part of the parable series that we are in the midst of, this Sunday we are going to take a look at the Parable of the Lost Sheep from Luke 15.

So, what do you know about shepherds and sheep?  Psalm 23 helps a bit if you want to do some reading. You might also want to check out Moses' time out in the wilderness with Jethro near Midian. Or you could look at some of the early stories of David's life...especially how he learned to wield that awesome sling. But to get started remember that shepherds are sheep experts in every way. They know their sheep. And the sheep also know their shepherds.

How have you experienced being shepherded? How have you experienced being a shepherd? When was a time that you were physically lost? What did you hope for in that time?  Who did you hope for in that time? What about being spiritually lost? How did you know it when you were found? These are some of the thoughts and questions we hope to think through and share about as we bring our student service downstairs this Sunday. Please join us!

Reading: Luke 15:1-7
