Home-group Questions 1 Samuel chapter 17
What giants do we face? What weapons can we use against the enemy?
David was the only one who volunteered to tackle Goliath. When there is a difficult task* to do in the church, do you keep your head down and hope someone else volunteers? * This might include door-to-door visits, handing out invitations on the street, spending time with people with big problems, challenging a boss’s unethical behaviour, challenging politicians’ unjust decisions, challenging fellow-believers about ungodly behaviour, etc
Consider Eliab’s reaction to David in v.28. Can we think of others who had an ungodly attitude to their younger brothers? Is there a danger today of older Christians belittling younger Christians and their motivation?
How did being a shepherd prepare David for being king?

Weekend Away at home 19th – 21st September On the Saturday evening we are planning to have a “Fullbridge Variety Show” If you have a hidden talent and would like to take part by providing a serious or light hearted contribution please have a word with Matt Springett.
Also Don’t forget that the programme for the weekend is on the notice board in the back hall together with a form with the names of all the church members.
We need to know if you are planning to be there in order that we may have numbers for catering and we also need to know what jobs you are able to help with in order that we can spread the load. We have tried to put all the names on the sheet but if your name is not there please add it to the bottom of the form.
Children’s groups during the summer holidays During the summer holidays, except for Family services when everyone is together, Pepper and Mustard will meet as one group in the back hall. We will re-start our normal groups on the 14th September.
Wanted Children’s summer clothing items and footwear (apart from slippers) including school uniforms (sorry no blazers) for Honduras. If you have any items please can you pass them onto Terry and Ann. After 20 years, this will be the last year we will be collecting clothes for the children and it would be great to finish with a generous amount of goods. Please let Ann and Terry have them by the end of September. If you have any queries please have a word with them.
