Sermon-based Studies

Sermon-based small groups are an excellent way of digging deeper into the weekly sermon and engaging with the Bible and each other.  At Subi Church, resources are provided that coincide with the Bible passage of the weekend sermon so that small group leaders can effectively facilitate sermon-based small groups.  The resources differ each week and will generally be available after the services each weekend.

Unearthing Hope

Where can we find hope in our world that is currently ravaged by the Covid-19 pandemic? Many countries are in lock down, and those that have loosened their restrictions do so with trepidation, fearing the dreaded second wave of the virus. Many have lost their lives to the virus, and many more will be impacted by the economic and financial fallout from this pandemic. How can we have hope in such dire and trying times? Where can we find hope today?

We are starting a new sermon series on this topic called “Unearthing Hope”. The title of the series is a play on words. First, we want to dig and “unearth” hope in the Scriptures, with all its fullness and splendour. Secondly, as followers of Christ, we realise that our ultimate hope is not grounded upon anything on this “earth”, and any hope that we have needs to be untethered and “unearthed” from the things of our world.

In the coming weeks, as we are able to gather again with our small group, let us come together to unearth our hope in the Scriptures. Even for those of us who have studied the Scriptures for decades, there is still more richness to be mined from God’s word to refresh, encourage, and lift our souls. Let us do that together, and help one another to lift our eyes away from the things of the earth, and focus on the source and author of our hope – Jesus Christ our Lord.
