Lay a great foundation for Church life
In times of great change the new church in Thessalonica faced dangers and challenges, but also opportunities. Share Paul’s joy in discovering that the gospel really does work even in the most difficult circumstances. The same letters could be written to us in today’s fast-changing times. Our churches, like that in Thessalonica, still need faith, hope, love and holiness at their core.
Through these seven studies explore:
- The importance of encouragement and thanksgiving
- Developing and building on the right kind of leadership
- The centrality of prayer and the nature of salvation
- Dealing with contention, persecution and misunderstandings
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
