The Text In Context

Bob Utley, "Philippians 1"
1. REACH grows out of…
1. REACH grows out of a wonderful history and partnership.

Partnership in the Gospel

Keith Krell explores Philippians 1, arguing that exemplary churches are (1) welcoming, (2) courageous, and (3) generous. See Keith Krell, "Howdy, Partner!"
For Reflection/Discussion
Keith Krell suggests in his article that there are four kinds of people in every church. What are they? Do you agree? What are your thoughts on his conclusion, "If there is no partnership, there is no church"?
A single theme runs through our history…
A single theme runs through our history: REACHING people with the good news of God's love.
Take a moment to thank God for the vision, commitment, generosity, and sacrifices made by the people who made StoneBridge Community Church what it is today.
For Reflection/ Discussion
How important is it for us to leave a legacy to future generations?
2. REACH advances…
2. REACH advances our journey to spiritual maturity.
• REACH is a biblically-based…
REACH is a biblically-based spiritual journey that's meant to grow our faith. While we'll have an opportunity to give sacrificially over a three-year period, REACH doesn't work like a secular "fundraiser." So no raffles, bake sales, or silent auctions— because they don't grow our faith.
• REACH has been bathed…
REACH has been bathed in prayer from the very beginning.
Prayer Guides and Prayer Stations
Have you picked up your REACH Prayer Guide? They're available this weekend at the Hub. Prayer Stations take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:00am and 7:00pm, as well as on the weekends next to worship times.)
"Not equal gifts…"
"Not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice"
Honoring God with our gifts, sharing in Christ’s mission to seek and save the lost, giving consistently and sacrificially as an act of worship, demonstrating selfless generosity, and inviting people to be a part of what God is doing here grow our faith and advance our journey toward spiritual maturity.
For Reflection/ Discussion
Why is prayer such an important part of knowing how to respond in faith to an opportunity like REACH? How is God using the REACH campaign to grow our faith and deepen our discipleship as followers of Jesus?
3. REACH expresses…
3. REACH expresses our love for God, one another, our community, and the world.
You can give without loving…
You can give without loving, but you can't love without giving.
“'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’" Matthew 22:37-39
For Reflection/ Discussion
How does our participation in the REACH campaign demonstrate our love of God, our neighbors, and the world?
4. REACH offers…
4. REACH offers us an opportunity to seek God's will and respond in faith.
For Reflection/ Discussion
What connection is Paul making between love, insight, discernment, standing blameless before Christ, and our glorifying God? What part do these play in how we respond to the REACH campaign and other opportunities given to us by God?
REACH invites us to look…
• Up to God for guidance and direction;
• Around to see our neighbor's need; and
• Within as we respond in faith.
