Dive Deep

The heart of our desire at VCC is to study the Bible because it is the living word of God and has the power to change lives (2 Timothy 3:16-17). This year, we want to provide an opportunity for our church to join together in regular bible study (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10).

  1. A deeper dive into Sunday sermons. (Questions Below)
  • We will have discussion questions in the bulletin each week that pertain to the sermon. You can use these for further study and reflection throughout the week.
  • For those who miss a Sunday, the sermon & these discussion questions can also be found on our website.
  1. New Testament reading plan.
  • As a church, we will begin a New Testament reading plan that will take us through the New Testament, chronologically, in 18 weeks. We will plan for 5 days/week of reading 1-3 chapters a day.
  • The plan we are using is the Bible Recap by Tara-Leigh Cobble. For each day’s bible text reading, the Bible Recap also offers a summary of key points. These can be accessed in a number of different ways, depending on your preference.

DIVE DEEP INTO THE WORD

 SUNDAY SERMON QUESTIONS

Sunday March 3, 2024 - 18 Philippians 4:1-5 Study Questions


1. Reflecting on Philippians 4, how can we, as a church community, encourage and support one another in the pursuit of spiritual maturity? Discuss ways in which we can be both commendatory and corrective in love, just as Apostle Paul demonstrates.

 

2. In what practical ways can we walk alongside young believers to guide them on their path to maturity, as illustrated by the crown (Stephanos) of honor? Consider sharing personal experiences where mentorship has played a role in your spiritual growth or the growth of others.

 

3. Drawing from Jesus' teaching in John 15:5, how does the analogy of the vine and branches help us understand our relationship with Christ and with one another? What does it mean to be deeply rooted in Him, and how can this impact our sense of unity and strength as a community?

 

4. Discuss the significance of being "in the Lord" as mentioned by Paul in Romans 8:1 and 2 Corinthians 5:17. How does this identity shape our interactions, decisions, and overall lifestyle within the church body and the world?

 

5. In the light of the dispute between Euodia and Syntyche (Philippians 4:2-3), how can we foster a culture of reconciliation and peace within our congregation? Share insights on the role of a mediator and the importance of setting aside pride for the sake of unity.

 

6. The sermon speaks to the importance of adapting and embracing various styles of worship within our community. How can passages like Psalm 96:1-4 guide us in celebrating diversity in worship while maintaining a heart posture that honors God?

 

7. As the sermon invites us to reflect on our place 'in the Lord', how can we prepare our hearts to embrace change, worship, and connection? Think through on how Colossians 3:12-14 might inform our approach to community and personal spiritual growth.
