Praise Report:
There are three groups in the Gaithersburg community that will be filling our church campus this summer to make room for kids' summer camps. How exciting to be able to offer our Pathways facilities to continue sharing the love and joy of Jesus with our next generation.
Small Group Socials:
Our wonderful Pathways leaders are hard at work inviting church members and attenders to take a step and come meet people from their Sunday School class and Small Group. Visit the Gathering Area to see the list of opportunities to meet new people and get to know each other better. Use the QR code located on the list and choose a date and location along with other important information. Don't be shy... you'll be glad you took the next step.

Easter Sunday Sermon
Rev. Jonathan Der, Senior Pastor
MEDITATION / DISCUSSION PROMPTS AND RESOURCES

1.(Synchronize your soul) Sometimes Truth doesn’t take hold until we participate in it. Take some time to first read through, then participate in their truth by rewriting the following verses in your own words:
-1 Corinthians 13:12-13
-Hebrews 12:1-3
-Hebrews 4:14-16
-Lamentations 3:22-23
-Matthew 28:20 (the second half)

2.(Seeing your true past) Share about a past time when it was difficult to see God in the midst of your circumstance. How did it turn out? Can you now, looking back, trace God’s presence working on your behalf even through that hardship? Who can you ask to help you grow in this strength of sight?

3. (Sharing your true feelings with Him) What truths of abandonment do you feel God prompting you to face? How have you abandoned Him in some parts of your life? Do you need to yell and shout and work out some feelings of being abandoned by Him? What makes you think God cannot handle your frustrations, fears, doubts, and challenges?

4. (Showing Him through a new lens) Most in this era disagree with the concept of sin, or on what sin is, or what choices are sin. But everyone understands abandonment. How would you try explaining the ancient gospel truth in this new packaging, through the lens of abandonment? What personal story could you share from this perspective?
