Bless a Child this Christmas

The Westside Giving Tree provides an opportunity to come together as a community, bringing joy and delight to 100’s of children on Christmas morning. Through our partnership with multiple nonprofit and city organizations, we have identified children in real need. The Giving Tree represents those specific children and families.

El Árbol Generoso brinda la oportunidad de unirse como comunidad y llevar gozo y alegría a cientos de niños en la mañana de Navidad. A través del trabajo en conjunto con varias organizaciones sin fines de lucro y de la ciudad, hemos identificado a los niños con necesidades reales, y el Árbol Generoso representa a esos niños y familias específicas.

Read: 2 Kings 7:3-10

Consider: Some thoughts for your group

What qualifies us to be bearers of good news? So often we disqualify ourselves from the work of sharing the good news of Jesus. We believe we aren’t educated enough (“maybe if I went to seminary?”). We believe we aren’t experienced enough (“maybe if I worked in ministry?”). We generally believe we are not enough based on our own measure of Godliness.  

This week we see some biblical heroes who could not be less qualified to carry a message of salvation and hope. Four men with leprosy left on the outskirts of their city to die a slow, lonely death. In their day and age, leprosy was not just a diagnosis of your body, it was a diagnosis of your soul too. The belief was that humans were divinely punished with greater suffering based on their own sinful life choices. In the belief system of their day, these men must have really earned the wrath of God to be in such miserable shape. Enough so that they were left at the entrance to the city to starve to death. Imagine. Everyone they knew believed them beyond salvation.

And yet, God writes s a miraculously hopeful story in the lives of these outcasts. In a somewhat comical turn of events these dying lepers drive out an entire army of enemies, collect the spoils of war (although they did no fighting), and return to their city with the good news that salvation has come!

Group Questions:

  1. What must these men have believed about themselves at the beginning of this story? What value did they hold in the eyes of their friends, family, or community?
  • How hard must it have been for them to leave the city entrance to go surrender themselves to the enemy? What do you think was going through their minds as they made that journey?
  • As is so often the case, God uses our folly and hopelessness for His own purposes. What does this story tell us about the character of God? If God can use these outcasts, what is preventing Him from using you for His purpose?

Closing Prayer:

Spend some time praying for one another for the week ahead and pray for a renewed sense of hope in God’s plan for each of our lives. If anyone feels a prompting to ask God to use them in their workplace, family, or community be sure to pray for that.

Read: John 6:1-14

Consider: Some thoughts for your group

A young boy with his loaves and fishes set the stage for one of Jesus greatest miracles: taking a little and making much. Jesus uses the young boy’s meager meal to feed a crowd of thousands, and in the process challenge His disciples to have faith for all that God can do with the smallest offering.

As we have discussed often in this teaching series, the heroes who often get our attention in the bible are revered as mighty people of faith, courage, and determination. In this story, our young hero is not really any of those things, but instead is a model of giving God what we have (great or small) and trusting in God’s ability to multiply our offering into great things.

Pastor Evan said on Sunday, “Maybe because he was too young to know better, maybe because he hadn’t experienced the loss of hope. This boy believed his offering might just make a difference. To give up your lunch and risk hunger is no small thing. In the uncertainty, the boy chooses generosity. That’s the sign that hope is alive, that cynicism hasn’t taken over and it’s also the way to set the stage for a miracle: Respond to uncertainty with generosity.”

Group Questions:

  1. Put yourselves in the shoes of the young boy. What would it be like to have Jesus asks for your meal to give to others? How do you think you would respond?
  • Put yourselves in the shoes of the disciples. How would you respond to Jesus saying to share a small meal with thousands of people? What must it have been like to see all those people fed and still food left over?
  • What might God be asking of you? Do you have a sense for any part of your life that God is calling toward generosity?

Closing Prayer:

Spend some time praying for one another. Ask if anyone has prayer requests for the week ahead and pray for a strengthening of faith, even amid uncertainty.

Our partnership is helping homeless Vets in our community.

The Central Oregon Veterans Village is a community of transitional shelters designed to provide shelter and services for homeless veterans. This beautiful project of love is a joint venture between the Bend Heroes Foundation and Central Oregon Veterans Outreach (COVO). It is being managed as a public-private partnership with the City of Bend, Deschutes County, and the State of Oregon.

We were honored to partner with Furnish Hope, who provided all the furniture, bedding and decor for the completed houses. This Veterans’ Day, five veterans were able to move in! We look forward to all fifteen houses being completed in the near future.

Thank you for your faithful giving. We’re able to bless our community because of you!

Read: Genesis 16: 1-6; 17: 15-17; 18:9-15; 21: 1-7

Consider: Some thoughts for your group

Faith is not a rational concept. The apostle Paul says that the ways of Christ seem like foolishness to men. Perhaps there is not better depiction of this concept in scripture than the story of Sarah. She doubts God’s faithfulness and goodness throughout her journey to motherhood. She is mistreated and she mistreats others. She feels forgotten and even cursed. But ultimately God is faithful.

Sarah’s journey of faith is not a pretty picture. How many of us can relate? The faith journey is often an ugly road of twist, turns and heartache. Perhaps this happens to us because we have the wrong person at the center of our focus. If we pull up 30,000 feet and get a Gods eye view of Sarah’s story we will find that for much of her journey she has placed herself at the center. We cannot blame Sarah for this. We are all guilty of the same self-focused pursuits. But perhaps we can learn from our ancient sister.

Sarah was convinced that her fulfillment as a woman, a wife, a mother, and even her place in the community would be fulfilled by having a son. In her mind, she was incomplete. This way of seeing herself distorted her perception of her value and in the end cost her much of her life happiness and peace.

Of course, there was tremendous cultural pressure on every woman to fulfill this specific role in her marriage and community. It would be unfair to criticize Sarah for wanting to do what was being required of her. But we can use what we see in Sarah’s story to reflect on how we will choose to follow God today. In the end, Sarah was consumed by bitterness and reacted in cynicism to God’s promise. How will we wait for God’s promises to be fulfilled in our own life?

Group Questions:

  1. What is something that you have been waiting for and praying for that has yet to be fulfilled in your life? How have you submitted this hope to God?
  • What does waiting in faith look like in your life? Understandably, we all can take on parts of Sarah’s cynicism, doubt, and anger while we wait. How do you personally resist and/or reset your heart to hope in God?
  • Sarah created even more pain and suffering in her life by taking matters into her own hands. How do we decide when to act and when to wait? What role does prayer, wisdom, and seeking counsel from trusted mentors and friends play in your own journey of faith?

Closing Prayer:

Spend some time praying for one another. Ask if anyone has prayer requests for the week ahead and pray for a renewed hope in the places your group is waiting in faith. Pray for the grace and peace of Christ to be present for each other as we wait in expectation of what God will do.

Read: Exodus 35:30-35

Consider: Some thoughts for your group

This week we are introduced to another unsung hero of scripture named Bezalel. As Exodus tells us Bezalel is special not just because of his skill with design and craftsmanship, but because he was filled with the God’s Spirit. God used both the skill and the heart of Bezalel to help build the most important physical space in the Hebrew world, the Tent of Meeting.

There are few sacred spaces left in our modern world. We still build temples of our modern age, usually in the form of arenas for concerts and sporting events, but for the Hebrew people the most important and sacred space was the Tent of Meeting that became the center of worship for all of God’s people.

At the time, the Tent of Meeting was the only place in the world the Spirit of God resided and there was a tremendous amount of ceremony, repentance, and cleansing that every individual was required to partake in before they could enter this sacred space. By God’s grace and through the life, death, and resurrection of Christ, this sacred space is no longer hidden behind a vail for the religious few, but instead Christ has torn the vail and made all the earth His dwelling place.

Group Questions:

  1. Why was it so important that Bezalel not only had physical skill, but a heart for God and a life filled with the Spirit of God? What would happen if your gifts and talents were fully put to use for the glory of God? How might your life look different?
  • What are some sacred spaces that you can identify in our modern world? What makes a space sacred?  
  • Why is it important for the people of God to gather? How do you experience the gathering of the church today? Is it a sacred experience to you? Why or why not? Where else have you experienced sacred spaces of worship outside of the church?

Closing Prayer:

Spend some time praying for one another. Ask if anyone has prayer requests for the week ahead and pray for the space you are in right now to be sacred as the Holy Spirit ministers to each of you in your group.

Read: John 19:38-40

Consider: Some thoughts for your group

What do we do when life does not turn out as we had planned? The question isn’t if, but when significant change comes to our lives. Our relationships. Our work. Our health. Everything in our lives is continuously shifting and sometimes the hardest realization is how little control we actually have of our circumstances. So, the question we must wrestle with is how we will react to change and even disappointment when it arrives.

Many of the “heroes” we are discussing in our current teaching series are not significant because of their ability to avoid challenges in life, but instead the character and faith they display in the midst of challenges. Such is the story of a man named Joseph. John 19 gives us a short story of a man named Joseph who was a “secret” disciple of Jesus. Joseph loved and followed Jesus, but political and religious unrest made it dangerous to be known as a Jesus-follower.

Even in that dangerous environment Joseph loved Jesus enough to take the risk of tending to Jesus’ dead body after the crucifixion. Although Jesus was considered both an enemy to Rome and to the religious community, both of whom had Jesus crucified, Joseph loved Jesus enough to associate himself with the radical by taking his body from the cross and caring for it before taking it to the tomb. Joseph’s simple act of love and honor for Jesus, without knowing what will come on resurrection Sunday, gives us a beautiful example of a life fully dedicated to Christ.

Group Questions:

  1. As you read the story of Joseph what stands out to you most? Why do you think Joseph was compelled to tend to Jesus’ dead body?
  • We have the benefit of knowing that Jesus will soon rise from the grave, but Joseph didn’t know that when he tended to Jesus body. What does this tell us about the impact Jesus must have had on Joseph’s life?
  • Imagine the disappointment, fear, and maybe even anger that Joseph must have experienced seeing Jesus die on the cross. Joseph was a disciple and believed that Jesus was the promised messiah who would redeem the world. Can you identify with the feelings Joseph must have experienced? Have you experienced disappointment, fear or anger that left you questioning God?
  • In the end, we know that Jesus does rise from the grave, but Joseph gives us a beautiful example of faith and hope in waiting time before we see the fulfillment of God’s promises. Is there something you are waiting for God to do in this season? Share those hopes with your group.

Closing Prayer:

Spend some time praying for one another. Ask if anyone has prayer requests for the week ahead and pray for those who share what it is they are hoping and praying for God to do in their life.

Read: Ephesians 6:21-22 & Colossians 4:7-9;16-18

Consider: Some thoughts for your group

We’ve spent the last few weeks learning from some of the unheralded heroes of the bible. People who don’t get much publicity, but never-the-less play significant roles in the story of God in scripture. This week we learn about one of the apostle Paul’s most trusted friends, a man named Tychicus.

Tychicus stands out not because of the miracles he performed, the strength he demonstrated, or courage he displayed, but instead Tychicus gives us a glimpse of a friend who is faithful and trustworthy to do his small part of advancing the good news of Jesus to the world.

While Paul was imprisoned in Rome, he wrote many letters to the early churches throughout the known world. Of course, Paul could not delivery these letters himself and so he had to choose a few people to take his message to the churches and trust that the messenger would give a good and faithful report of what God was doing.

Tychicus was entrusted not only to deliver the letter, but to read it to the early church and give them a full picture of what was happening to Paul and the rest of the believers abroad. In his reading, Tychicus was both a news deliverer and a faith encourager. 

Group Questions:

  1. Have you considered the various roles we all play in the big story of God? Have you ever heard of Tychicus before this teaching? How do you see his role in the ministry of the Church?
  • Paul highlights some of the character traits of Tychicus: Trustworthy, Encouraging, Faithful, Hopeful. What of these characteristics stand out to you as necessary in our day and age to take the gospel to the world?
  • As Tychicus traveled from one city to the next, he would have been reminded of the dire situation all around. The early church was persecuted, often in hiding, and had virtually no power or authority in politics, business, or culture. And yet, the message of Paul was overwhelmingly hopeful for the future and the kingdom of God that was at hand. How can each of us carry this hope amid the current challenges and division in our world?

Closing Prayer:

Spend some time praying for one another. Ask if anyone has prayer requests for the week ahead and take time to encourage one another for the good has planned for you to deliver this week in your work, your family, and/or your neighborhood.

A Life-Changing Mission Trip Opportunity

Spring Break Build Trip: March 20-24, 2022

Would you like to embark on a family-friendly trip from Oregon to Mexico to build homes for families in need of shelter? Bend2Baja2Build is getting ready for a Spring Break Build Trip. Families with kids, individuals, and community groups are all welcome!

It is with grateful hearts that we get to share with you a recap of our recent trip to Baja. Our small, but mighty team of ten helped build five homes! We spent three full days of building to help complete five new homes for families in need of shelter.  These five families spent time helping build each other’s homes alongside our team.  It was so rewarding to not only be a part of their community, but to watch them build bonds as neighbors.

Read: Luke 24: 1-12

Consider: Some thoughts for your group

Have you ever felt that God has let you down? While many in the bible are revered as heroes for their faith in difficult times, the reality is that most of us have experienced disappointment with God when things don’t to go the way we anticipated. In Luke 24, we see this kind of disorienting disappointment in action.

A group of women are making the trip to Jesus’ tomb, and their world has been shattered. Remember that we have the advantage of knowing how the story ends, but for these women all they knew for certain was that the person they had believed in was gone. Jesus was supposed to be the savior of the world, God’s prophet who healed sick people, and even raised others from the dead. Jesus said His kingdom was at hand! But now, Jesus was gone, dead, and too poor to have his own grave. He is buried in a borrowed tomb.

This is not how it was supposed to be. So, understandably, everyone else has scattered. The crowds have gone. The fans have stopped cheering. Even the disciples are hiding in a locked room somewhere. But this group of women have walked to the tomb at sunrise to see Jesus. Not because they believe He is alive, but because they love him anyway. They are going to show their respect and love for Him, even though He has thoroughly let them down… or so they believe.

As they encounter the angels at the tomb they are told, “Remember how he told you when He was still with you [that he would raise from the dead]?” And Luke 24:8 says, “And then they remembered His words.” So much of our life with Jesus is remembering and trusting what God tells us even when things look different than we expected.

Group Questions:

  1. Have you experienced disappointment with God? Share your story of walking through that circumstance. Are there things that turned out differently (for good or bad) than you expected? What did you learn about God in the process?
  • We can’t overlook the significance of a group of women being entrusted with the good news of Jesus resurrection. Women in this time and culture were very much considered second class citizens. Why do you think God picks these women to bring the good news of Jesus resurrection to the disciples? What does this tell us about who God will use for His own purposes?
  • Nearly all the disciples respond to the women’s message with skepticism. “But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense.” But Peter is different. It says, “Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb.” What do you think is going through Peter’s mind that causes him to react this way? What does it say that he responds differently than the other disciples?

Closing Prayer:

Spend some time praying for one another. Ask if anyone has prayer requests for the week ahead, and if someone is wrestling with disappoint with God spend some time praying and encouraging that person.

Communion:

At the close of Sunday’s message, Pastor Steve will be leading the church through communion. If you would like to participate as a group please have bread and juice/wine available to the group. If helpful, below is a short guide through communion:

Communion is a meal of remembrance of Jesus suffering and sacrifice for us.

Scripture reference: Luke 22: 7-20

At the last supper, while Jesus was gathered with His disciples before He was crucified, Jesus took the bread from the table, gave thanks and broke it, and said, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant of my blood, which is poured out for you.”

As you take and eat the bread and drink the juice/wine, remember Christ’s love, grace and sacrifice for our sin and receive His gift of grace.

Pastor Steve .Thank you.What a great reminder.so nice to hear the word to keep clarity on the reality of our Faith.

So good Pastor Steve. What a narrow distance there is between believing God will fulfill His promises and presuming God will do whatever we ask in the way and timing that we ask for it. He is Sovereign! Sandy

Thank you Pastor Steve.

Great message. Thank you.

Dont copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know Gods will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. -Romans 12:2
