Connection Cards: Our Church family wants to welcome you to our service today. Finding the right place to worship God each week can be overwhelming. We’re a group of imperfect, Jesus- loving followers from all sorts of backgrounds and past experiences. Our prayer for you is that you feel welcome no matter where you are in your life. May your time today result in a spiritual renewal and a better understanding of how much God loves you!

Sermon Outline


1 Thessalonians 4:1-8

The Christian life can be compared to a walk – this is one of Paul’s favorite word pictures.

  • Ephesians 4:1, 4:17; 5:2, 5:8, 2 Corinthians 5:7

We must be sure to “walk in the light” for the enemy has put traps and detours in our paths to trip us.

Here are several ways that we should walk as we seek to please the Lord.

Continue to make spiritual progress (v.1)

Avoid succumbing to the culture of the day (vv.2-7)

Consider an eternal principle (v.8)
