Fully Engaged Remembering



"The greater your knowledge of the goodness and grace of God on your life, the more likely you are to praise Him in the storm."       - Matt Chandler


  • Why do you think that God gave the Israelites symbols to help them remember important events?
  • Remembering is important in the New Testament. Paul encourages the Church to “Remember” what Christ did on the cross for our salvation as often as you gather together.  How can we better prepare for Communion?  Put into your own words why it is so important to you.
  • How can some of your past experiences with God influence you as you seek to move forward?
