One of my favorite sermon series I’ve ever put together was Googling God. Each week is based on questions collected from the congregation. Now obviously a question series is not an original idea, but what I came up with was tying the thought to the internet search engine, Google. I first came up with the idea a few years ago and worked with on it with Brian Jones at Christ’s Church of the Valley and we are currently doing the series here at Hope Summit. This morning I thought why not share it! Here is how we put it together… On Christmas Eve we had blank cards with the logo on them in the bulletin and shared the following:
“In today’s world, more information is available at our fingertips than ever before. Instant messaging, texting, internet searches, emails and podcasts are the norm. In our fast-paced, information driven society, there are still many questions that remain unanswered. But what if you could Google God? What if you could ask God any question and you knew He would give you an answer? In our next series of teachings we are going to attempt to answer your questions. On the card write down your questions and the top three asked questions will be what we teach on the next three weeks!”
We collected the cards and our top three questions were as follows:
- How do I know the Bible is true?
- Why do bad things happen to good people?
- What will heaven be like?
Below I will upload MP3s of each sermon, my sermon notes, and graphics for you to use. Enjoy!
Our graphics here at Hope Summit were done by designer, Laura Spaar, she’s done most of our design work here at Hope Summit. Feel free to contact her if you’d like hire her for work with your church. Click on each image below to get the larger file.
