Vision ExplorersWhat is Church? 

Tonight I want us to think about what it means to be a part of a church.

First of all – lets write down some of the things that are important to us about church and then we will look at some Scripture.

Church can mean whatever you want it to mean at this point –

e.g. meeting place, worship, people

Scripture:

2 Samuel 7:1-7, 12-13

1 Kings 9:1-9 (p.386)

Acts 7: 44-50

Discussion Questions

How important is the church building?  Why/Why not?

Hymns

522 The Church is wherever God’s people are praising

204 I am the Church! You are the Church!

739  The Church’s one foundation

Look up hymns together – what ones do we like, find helpful.

Discussion Question

What is necessary for a church?

Community orientated?

Worship orientated?

Multi-focussed?

I will add notes on this discussion shortly
