Whether your church is beginning to meet in person again or your plans to reopen are still underway, one thing is for sure.
People have experienced a lot of disruptive changes.
For many, it feels like a time of wandering in the wilderness, just waiting to return to some sense of normal.
For others, it’s a time to reevaluate everything and focus on what’s most important.
The local church is a place people can turn to for help, support, advice, and truth. We want your church to be the voice of hope, encouraging people through tough times but preparing them for what’s ahead.
And while there is much to lament and still much concern for the future, both churches and people can use this time to reset many areas in life.
That’s one reason we put together this three-part sermon series themed around the word “Reset.” It’s a look at how the early church focused on their mission after a time of great chance. It’s a study through the first few chapters of the book of Acts, helping people build new rhythms and fresh community.
We’ve put together everything you need to do this series in your church, including…
- Sermon Graphics
- PowerPoint Slides
- Message Notes and Outlines
- Promotional Assets
It’s great for when you reopen the doors. But you can use it whenever you feel like your people are truly ready for a reset.
Here’s a look at the first week in the sermon series.
Week 1: Reset the Church
Text: Acts 1:1-12
Topic(s): Waiting, Reset, Movement, Patience, The Holy Spirit
Big Idea of the Message: Setting things back to the way they are supposed to be.
Application Point: Discover where the Holy Spirit wants to direct you in this reset.
God specializes in resetting. Throughout the scriptures we see God resetting His people. We see it from Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. We see it with Noah and with Moses. The crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus…a reset. Resetting is what God does best. The good news is the resetting is always for our benefit and for His glory. Sometimes the opportunity to reset is grace. Our struggle is that we always want to go back to the familiar instead of into the unknown. But resets are not about going back to the normal comforts of what we knew, but instead, a reset puts things back to the way they are supposed to be. As followers of Jesus, we have to move in the direction that God is leading us instead of moving back to where we use to be. We have to reset.
What if we were as intentional about the community we help create outside the church as we were cultivating within the Church?
