“Fruitless Busyness and Religiosity”

Read Mark 11:12–26

Discussion Questions

  • We often say we are busy. Does your busyness bear any fruit of the spirit? Are you growing spiritually today?
  • How are you serving others? Evaluate and share how you are serving those who are in need.
  • What does it mean for you to have faith in God? How does it apply in your life?

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, April 23.

“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 April 9.

It’s March, and you know what that means—besides one final snowy fast break/slam dunk combo from old man winter—the NCAA basketball tournament! But don’t watch alone.
