Northcross Missions Team PLEASE CONSIDER ATTENDING THE 2ND SERVICE We had people sitting and standing in the reduced foyer last week – we were unable to accommodate everyone. It would be exceedingly helpful if those with more flexibility considered moving to the 2nd service until we have more room, making space for those who can’t attend the 2nd service.

SUMMARY: We human beings have been made differently from every other living being—we have been made personally by God and in God’s image. Like our God, we create, design, and explore. We think and make moral choices. We may even choose sacrifice over selfishness and forgive the unforgiveable. If your unique significance is that you are God’s image-bearer, how are you living up to that image? LIFE GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: Read Genesis 1:20-31 & Genesis 2, especially 4-24 1] How do the creation stories of animals, Adam, and Eve differ? Why do you think God created human beings? —————————————————— I would like to ask about / discuss —————————————————— —————————————————— Please fill in and place in an Offering Cone on your way out Name: ___________________________ Phone: __________________________ E-mail: __________________________ RESPONSE SLIP 2] What special role with authority was given to humans and why? Read also Psalm 8. 3] How do human communication and human reason show that we are made more like God than animals? How are the relationships of Adam, Eve and God personal? 4] How is Jesus a unique bridge between heaven and earth, the creator and creation? Reread Psalm 8 and compare Hebrews 2:5-9.
