ENCOURAGING WORDS FROM THE WORD
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program



Today’s Encouraging Word: "Psalm 37:1-5 (ESV)”

1Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! 2For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. 3Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. 4Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.”



WHAT IS MULTIGENERATIONAL WORSHIP?
Discussed by Ray Jones
with Radiance Ministries (www.radianceworship.org)


Part 1 of 3

What does a typical worship service look like across the United States? While most churches have pulled away from “multigenerational services” over the past few decades, many are now returning to this “non-traditional” setting for various reasons.

Radiance Ministries is committed to training up the next generation of worship leaders. They have mentored men and women for over thirty years in the biblical practice, skills, and methods of worship. They have taken these skills and used them as a tool for evangelism locally, nationally, and globally.

Ray Jones is the President and Founder of Radiance Ministries. Many of his songs have been published by Prism Music and Lifeway Worship.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What are some statistics regarding church numbers?

Do parents believe raising their kids in church is an important life decision?

How can multigenerational worship help bring families back to the church – and stay there?

Why should students serve in the church?



PART 2 OF 3 - WHAT IS MULTIGENERATIONAL WORSHIP?
Discussed by Ray Jones
with Radiance Ministries (www.radianceworship.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Listen as Ray Jones briefly shares his testimony of when and how God called him into ministry…

Why does Ray feel so lead to share his experience with multigenerational worship with others, leading and teaching them to do the same?

What does Ray mean by “the attractional church”? Why isn’t it working?

How did the idea of “Go and Tell” come to Ray? How is it helping churches around the globe bring their congregants and communities together?

Ray Jones was able to bring “Go and Tell” to military bases and prisons. What were those experiences like? “When true worship happens, God shows up,” Ray has observed time and time again.



PART 3 OF 3 - WHAT IS MULTIGENERATIONAL WORSHIP?
Discussed by Ray Jones
with Radiance Ministries (www.radianceworship.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Champion Forest Baptist Church is one church that Ray Jones is helping bring multigenerational worship to. Was segregating the youth and adults failing? Or is this simply another way to further disciple the next generation?

What happened to Ray Jones’ church in San Antonio when they implemented multigenerational worship? What was the role of the pastoral staff during the transition? How did the church members become more involved? Ray says this: “It was an all-inclusive concept that we were together on mission.”

What will the student’s roles be at CFBC when they merge together with the adults?

Does multigenerational worship encourage more students/teens to surrender to full-time ministry?

Final thought from Ray: “We are pouring life into life so that the next generation can pour life into life.” Amen!

CROWN MINISTRIES DEVOTION
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries is entitled: “Be a Good Follower” and is taken from John 12:26 “If anyone serves me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there shall My servant also be; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.”

We are encouraged beginning as children to be leaders. But doesn’t God want us to be followers – to build others up and honor them? Most definitely! Listen as Terry Lowry reads from today’s devotion by Larry Burkett.

Further Scripture reading: Daniel Chapters 6 and 9



JESUS AND PRAYER
Discussed by Brent Johnson
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)


Day 4

This week during The What’s UP Radio Program, Champion Forest Baptist Church Senior Adult Pastor Brent Johnson will continue Mark Lanier’s Jesus Devotional on “Prayer”.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

JESUS’S ANSWER

In Matthew 10, Jesus sent out the disciples to preach the Gospel.

Are you satisfied staying where you are? Or do you long for more? Get out and just do it! I love the hymn “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty”, which comes from Isaiah 6. Pastor Johnson details these verses…

What is God’s favorite prayer to answer?

Does God answer the prayers of people who are not saved?

When was the last time you really prayed?

When was the last time you randomly asked someone if they know Jesus?

When was the last time you invited someone to church? Tune in tomorrow to hear the conclusion of Pastor Johnson’s story…

EPHESIANS
Discussed by Pastor Averri LeMalle
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)


Day 4

Champion Forest Baptist Church recently began a new sermon series on Ephesians. Pastor Averri LeMalle kicked off the series with his sermon: “A Greeting Worth Repeating” from Ephesians 1:1-2.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why was Ephesus such a significant city? Why did God send his saints there?

Pastor Averri LeMalle challenges us to do something really out of our comfort zone. Try introducing yourself in this way to someone this week: “Hello. My name is… And I am a child of the Most High God.” Do you think this would open up an opportunity to share your testimony?

What two things did Paul pray for the people in his greeting?

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
