Faith versus Works

Ephesians 2:8; Philippians 2:13

Family Discussion Questions

  • Who does good works?
  • What kinds of things are good works? What is faith?
  • When do good works show our faith? When do we use good works in place of faith?
  • Where can we as a family find ways to show our faith through our good works?
  • Why does it matter whether we have faith or if we just use good works? Why do so many people try to rely on good works?
  • How is faith different from good works?
  • Which is easier faith or good works?
  • Pray for each member of your family that they would focus on faith and not works.

Fizzy Faith – Good works are an outflow of our faith. Go outside then put a few mentos candies into a bottle of diet coke. Just like the mentos make the diet coke fizz and pour out of the bottle, our faith pushes us for good works from the overflow.

Thanks to Disney many of you probably know that Ohana is Hawaiian for family but did you know that in its fullest sense, Ohana is a group of people bound by love and compassion for one another – it includes intentional, adopted family and close friends. This year at our Ohana Island VBS, we are going to be exploring how God created us for community with Him and with one another.

Ohana Island will run July 18-22 from 6:15-8:45PM. Evenings on Ohana Island will begin with our worship rally where we will dig into biblical truth and worship the God who designed us all. The night will continue with games, science, snacks, small group time, and missions. Each night will conclude with a short time of worship as we gather together for dismissal.

Registration is open so go ahead and start to share on social media, invite friends, and register your own children []!

Mark your calendars and come join us as we discover how we are created for community!
