‘Momentum Matters’ is a free youth sermon series on spiritual discipline.

Momentum makes a massive impact. You see it in sports, fitness and school work. There is momentum in your life as well. With every decision you make, you are creating either positive or negative momentum. Every big victory starts with small wins.

In this series, we are challenging students to commit to three spiritual disciplines every day: prayer, reading the Bible, and community. These spiritual disciplines help students build positive momentum, grow closer to Jesus, and win in other areas of life.

This is how the spiritual discipline sermon series breaks down:

Week 1: Prayer

Every influential person in scripture lived a life positioned in prayer. The act of prayer is transformational and foundational because it leads us into communion with God. We simply speak His name and He joins us wherever we are. God can meet us anywhere — even in the belly of a fish. We are going to discover a life-giving model for prayer by studying the prayers of Jonah.

Scripture: Jonah 2:1-11 , Psalm 30:3 , Psalm 42:7

Week 2: Reading the Bible

When David says God’s word is a light to his path, he is saying that scripture takes away the fear and anxiety of walking through life in the dark. We may not know exactly where our path is going, but we know that we are safe and secure if our next step is in line with God’s will. The Bible gives us an outline for life. It allows us to uncover our purpose and identity that point us where we are meant to go in life.  

Scripture: Psalm 119:105

Week 3: Community

You were created for community. Both nature and scripture attest to this fact. We are going to emphasize the importance of community by examining both practical examples in nature and life-changing teachings in scripture. 

Scripture: 1 Peter 2:5-6
