Post Easter Preaching Series Ideas

backtothesourceI know its not even Easter yet but some churches are pulling together ideas for the teaching programmes so i thought I would share with you a few ideas for teaching series. Regular followers of the blog will know that I am a big fan of consecutive expository preaching series. I have a blog brewing on how to decide which biblical books to look at in which order for a church – so keep an eye out for that. In the mean time we have a couple of books that are coming out that were written to try and help a church explore a theme on Sunday mornings and then encourage the church to read bite size portions each day to reinforce the ideas and include small group questions to help embed the ideas into the corporate life of the church as well as the dispersed life of the congregation.

This book about Jesus contains 6 weeks worth of daily reading material (weekends are off) which aim to help your congregation grow in Christlike Character, by exploring what it means to BE like Jesus, and SAY it like Jesus and Do life like Jesus.

You want to be just like Jesus, because this is the way he made you. Like clay awaits a potter. Like canvas awaits a painter. Our lives long to be shaped by Jesus.

But – to be blunt –

  • You are not the Son of God and Saviour of the world
  • You can’t walk on water or heal leprosy
  • You don’t want to give up your home and job, or get killed for your beliefs

Because God made you to be like Jesus, there truly is hope. Christlike habits, attitudes, passions, disciplines, role-models, visual aids and real-life examples are offered in Scripture and explored in this book. As you discover and develop these, you will find that your life really does connect with Jesus.
