These questions are for you to consider individually and in Life Groups; take time going through these and allow questions to create conversation. Read the bible passages above.
1. Consider God’s grace in your life and list your blessings.
2. Look at your response to His grace. How have you given it away?
3. How can you intentionally let God’s grace flow through your life?
We pray for and celebrate with Ethan Gladdy and Jonathan Burch as they have their birthdays this week.
Teams4U Shoeboxes: A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the shoebox campaign. The boxes will be loaded on to the lorries on 30th November and then journey on their way to the needy children of Romania, Belarus and Ukraine
Christmas Cards: The Christmas cards in the welcome area are for you to take away and distribute to your friends and neighbours; particularly non-Christians (along with the HOPE magazine). They contain our Christmas service times, so they act as an invite as well as a Christmas greeting
Advent Prayer Diary: This is also available in the welcome area, please help yourself to one and allow it to guide you through daily prayers
Advent Candles: Calendars are available from the card stall (all proceeds to Gilead Health Trust in Uganda)

Our People: We pray for parents; that God will bless them with patience, discernment, an excellent support network, relief from worries over finance, health, good relations with their children and great joy in the Lord.
Our Community: We pray for Coventry’s industry as the bid for a new electric car battery factory is considered. We pray for good, measured and forward-thinking decisions and whatever the outcome of this bid, we ask for availability and stability of jobs for those living in our city.
Our World: As the volcano in Bali continues to threaten eruption, we pray for a safe evacuation of everyone in the surrounding area and peace and security for those concerned about losing their livelihood.
