“The Pivot to Practice”

Discussion Questions

  • Why is it significant that Paul prays at this point in his letter to the Ephesians?
  • What does Paul’s posture in prayer tell us? What is the significance of this for your own life of prayer?
  • What is Paul aspiring to in his prayer? How should this influence our aspirations in prayer?
  • How do we see the Trinity in Paul’s prayer? Does this make any difference to your own prayer life?
  • According to this text, what is the role of the Spirit in the life of the believer? How might this reform your own expectations about the Spirit’s work in your life?

A Service of Lament

The last year and a half has been filled with hardship and tragedy and one of the most difficult things about it has been the inability to properly grieve those hardships together. That’s why we are going to set aside a special service of lamentation where we practice holy discontent, bringing all of the tragedies and hardships of our lives, our communities, and the world to the only one who can do anything about it. Join us on October 17 at 6 pm as we sing songs and pray through selections of the book Every Moment Holy: Death, Grief and Hope.

Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It’s the next step after salvation through repentance and faith and is an important foundation for the Christian life. If you’ve put your trust in Jesus’ death and resurrection and are ready to go public with that confession—showing the world that you love, trust, and have put your hope in Christ—we invite you to be baptized here at Chelten on Sunday, October 31.

“Going under the water was a burial of your old life; coming up out of it was a resurrection, God raising you from the dead as he did Christ. When you were stuck in your old sin-dead life, you were incapable of responding to God. God brought you alive—right along with Christ! Think of it! All sins forgiven, the slate wiped clean, that old arrest warrant canceled and nailed to Christ’s cross.” Colossians 2:12-14 MSG

Please sign up at the Welcome Center by October 17 or email [email protected].
