Mother's Day Celebration

We are so thankful for all of our moms, as well as those who take the role of mom! We want to celebrate and thank you for your sacrifices and investment in the next generation. To celebrate that, we have Fannie Mae chocolates for every lady as you exit the service. Make sure to get yours!

Discussion Questions

Icebreaker Question

What days or events did you long for so eagerly that you moved from mere waiting to ‘hastening’?

Discussion Questions

Why does God describe His day as coming ‘like a thief’?
What should we expect in the future and how should that impact the way we live now?
What does Peter describe as a defining characteristic of the new heavens and new earth? What parts of your life long for that and what parts of your life might be incompatible with that vision?

Application Questions

What might it look like for you to not only ‘wait’ for the coming day of God but to ‘hasten’ it?
Are there any areas, relationships, or routines in your life that God is bringing to mind for you to change to be better prepared for the day of the Lord?
What step might God be calling you to take to live a life of greater holiness and godliness?
