Announcement 

Do not forget to plan for the Hangout Night next week and invite your unchurched freinds. 

Church Vision Statement 

We are a biblically rooted church that wants to help you overcome life’s emptiness through a deeper relationship with Christ and a connection to a family who cares.

Ice-Breaker: Read both questions at the same time. 

  • What New Year’s Resolution are you still doing? Is there anything you have quit?

Read: Psalm 1

1Blessed is the person who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, 

Nor stand in the path of sinners, 

Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!

2But his delight is in the Law of the LORD, 

And on His Law he meditates day and night.

3He will be like a tree planted by streams of water, 

Which yields its fruit in its season, 

And its leaf does not wither; 

And in whatever he does, he prospers.

4The wicked are not so, 

But they are like chaff which the wind blows away.

5Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, 

Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, 

But the way of the wicked will perish.
