Hello New Life!
Below is an order for in-home worship for this Sunday, March 14.
If you start your in-home service at 9:30 am, you'll be synchronized with us and you'll be able to stream the sermon just as it starts going live (at about 9:45 am). Don't worry if you miss the live-stream; a recording of the sermon will be available on our sermons page by Sunday afternoon.
And here are this week's sermon-based questions for kids (If you'd rather not print, the same questions are listed at the bottom of this blog post, as well):

Benediction - Go out into the world this week with God's blessing and spiritual enablement by reading:
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:5-6 NIV)
Discussion Questions for Kids
1. Have you ever wanted to get someone back for something they did to you? What happened and what did you do?
2. In today's story, what is one thing God's people did not do against their enemies? (Hint: Read verses 10, 15, and 16)
3. In your own life, who can help you resist so you won't do the things you should not do? What can you do to get help from him?
4. In today's story, God gave his people rest and relief from their enemies. How has Jesus given us relief from sin and death? Spend some time this week thanking Jesus! (Ask your family to join you in giving thanks)
