Lawd hab tole me dat He been trying and hasn’t been able to get into it either.” n. MY DENOMINATION- REPRE­ SENTS A “FEEDING PLACE*’ AND “ T R A I N I N G STATION” FOR C H R I S T I A N YOUTH (1 Tim. 4:12-14). T . It is (or should be) a place where we have opportunity to participate in a well-rounded, spiritual pro­ gram (v. 13). a. “Reading,” i.e., devotional, such as prayer meeting. b. “Exhortation,” such sis preach­ ing services. c. “Doctrine,” such as Sunday- school classes, Bible study, etc. 2. It is (or should be) a place where we, if spiritually mature, may take an equal place in spiritual life with adult believers (v. 12 ). 3. It is (or should be) a place where we receive trailing and opportun-. ity to exercise our God-bestowed gifts and abilities (v. 14).- Ulus.: Services conducted by the Young People’s Society, Sunday- school classes, gospel services, mis- ion and jail team activities, work of lay preachers, etc. For the Leader 1. Have' some one in the group, in collaboration with the pastor, report on the origin, history, special policies, and world-wide work of your denomination. 2. Ask your pastdr for a doctrinal statement of your denomination. Does your local church live up to this creed? Discuss. 3. Wherein is your church different from others? Are the differences justi­ fiable ? Examine from a Scriptural basis and discuss. 4. Is your church able to work with other churches which truly honor our Lord Jesus? Are you doing it? If not, why not? CRY FROM WAR TORN EUROPE! V ery urgent appeals com e to us from - P olish and Russian m issionaries in P oland-G erm an, fo r im m ediate financial support and relief.

(Note: If your Young People’s Society is not in any . denomination, make the application of this lesson to your own local church.) Introduction Although it is not a good thing to become too self-centered in our own de­ nominational program, nevertheless it is a good thing occasionally to turn the attention o f our Young People’s Society to our own church, and to the associa­ tion of which it is a part. We need to know "what our denomination stands for,” the meaning and purpose of it, and the principles and policies it upholds. In order to gain the most benefit from this investigation, let us attempt to determine what God expects of our denomination. For Those Who Have Topics I.

Note that the church is called a “ temple” (v. 21). So also are vce as members of the church (cf. 1 Cor. 3:16, 17). A temple is a place of worship! Dare we defile God’s house (either His church or our bodies), with worldly and dishonoring activities ? 4. Note that the church is to be the earthly residence of God (v. 22). Is the living God “at home” in your church ? Ulus.: A dignified minister of a fashionable church was approached by a colored man requesting mem­ bership. In embarrassment the minister told him to go home and to pray about it. A few days later the colored man came to the pastor sayings “Well, suh, I’s prayed about it and I’s decided dat I doesn’t want to belong to dis church, but I don’t feel bad about it, for de
