Welcome to the final week in our series, BREAKING POINT. This week, we consider the story of Hannah in 1 Samuel 1.

What hardships did Hannah face in this passage?

Pastor Jeff concluded our series BREAKING POINT by looking at the story of Hannah found in 1 Samuel. As a group, name his main points.

Which part of the sermon most encouraged or challenged you, and why?

God is the one able to bring something extraordinarily good out of a situation that is extraordinarily bad. Where do we see this in Hannah’s story?

Has there been a time you poured out your soul to the Lord? If you are comfortable sharing, what did that look like?

Hannah sees God’s generosity to her and gives back to him in a tangible way. Where have you seen God’s generosity in your life

Discuss some ways you can tangibly give back to the Lord out of gratitude to him.

Is there anything else about the sermon you wanted to talk about?
