GPS Children's Program
Our GPS Children’s Program will be held Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m., here at 123 Arlington Avenue. Through teaching, music, and games, the kids age 3 and up learn about the Gospel, God, the Bible, and having good relationships with Jesus Christ and with others. We all need some direction in our lives today - especially our children. To volunteer, see Mark Foster.
Philippines Mission Trip 2023
Back to the Philippines! This year we are sending the Foster family to work with Pastor Melo Lumibao in a Spring Outreach to local schools. Pray for God’s provision for the trip, including travel and in-country expenses, ministry supplies, and outreach and follow-up materials. There is still time to donate to the trip, too. Pray for Pastor Melo and his team as they plan evangelistic outreaches to local elementary schools. Pray for the Gospel to be shared, and families to be reached by the local churches.
Swansgate Bible Study
Our study continues into 2 Corinthians, every Wednesday at 2:00 p.m., at the Swansgate Clubhouse (400 Swansgate Place, near Prisma). See Jim or Tina Whitworth for more information.

Home Group/Study Questions
These questions are provided for your further study and application of today’s sermon. Thoughtfully writing out the answers to these questions will help to drive home the truths we are learning.
1. Was there any passage of scripture or statement in the message today that was particularly meaningful or applicable to you?

2. Read Daniel 2:20-21. The all-encompassing descriptions of Romans 13:1-2 are shocking to some Christians. They have a hard time reconciling the flawed and imperfect human governments with God’s perfect and holy character. How would you attempt to explain the mystery of the way God institutes and uses imperfect people to accomplish His perfect plan in the world?

3. Read 1 Peter 2:13-17. What are some of the ways we demonstrate a submission to our human government, while maintaining that our ultimate allegiance and obedience are to Jesus Christ?

4. Read 1 Timothy 2:1-4. Why is this command so important to maintaining a right attitude toward the government under which God has determined we now live?

5. Read Acts 4:13-21 and Acts 5:27-47. How does the behavior of the Disciples in this account illustrate the truths of Romans 13:1-7? What are some practical ways we put into practice Romans 12:1-2 today?
