09 Jul Equally Important | At The Movies – Part 4
“At the Movies” is an annual summer event at Alive Church. We decorate our lobby in a movie theme and invite friends and family. During the experience, we show snippets of popular films, and our Teaching Pastors create a message based on themes from the film. It’s one of our most popular and fun series, and we look forward to it every year. Due to copyright law, we cannot post footage from any films on our archive – but we will live stream each service at Alivechurch.com

At The Movies 2018 – Part 4
July 7th & 8th, 2018
“The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old.” Proverbs 20:29
- Value The Wisdom Of The Old And The Strength Of The Young.
- Change Your Perspective By Changing The Way You Think.
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” Romans 12:2a
“When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.’ Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them.” Mark 10:14-16
- Change Your Perspective By Being Open To Learn.
“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12
My Next Step This Week:
___ In conversations with others I will stop and ask myself, “Is this a moment where I can learn from them or be inspired by them?”
___ I will get involved in the life of a child by volunteering at Alive with Kids/Teens.
- What stood out to you about this weekend’s talk? How would you explain the main ideas of it to someone else?
- Read and reflect on Proverbs 20:29. How can that verse be applied in your daily life as you value the “glory” of youthful strength and the “splendor” of gray-haired experience?
- How can you live today with “childlike faith”? What would that look like for you? (See Mark 10:13-16)
- For those of you who volunteer with kids or teens, what have you learned from them about faith? If you are not in the life of a kid or teen, what are you going to do to add that to your life?
