1 Thessalonians 4:13 – 5:28 The Hope Cinardo Home (Rutherford, NJ) Chatten, Bob 02/08/2009
This teaching is about Jesus Christ’s second coming which has two parts, Christ coming for his Church and Christ coming back with his Church. It covers how there is no consciousness in death and the wrath to come which the believers will not be subject to. It tells how we are to walk because Jesus Christ is coming back and how we are to live in light of the hope of Christ’s return.

1 Thessalonians 3:1 – 4:12 Leadership and Service Love Cinardo Home (Rutherford, NJ) Zolezzi, Steve 02/08/2009
The teacher shows how Paul sends comfort and encouragement to the Thessalonian believers by telling them to abound more and more in love. He tells them how they ought to walk in a sanctified way, having their bodies in subjection to their minds and leading people by serving with love in contrast with using people. He talks about investing in your rewards plus studying and striving to do God’s will because it is an honor to do so.
1 Thessalonians Chapter 2 Leadership and Service Cinardo Home (Rutherford, NJ) Gilmore, Michael 02/01/2009
This teaching goes through the second chapter of 1 Thessalonians. The teacher discusses the manner of life Paul, Silas and Timothy showed towards the believers in Thessalonica. We see the heart of a genuine leader showing their life as an example of service to the believers as they cared for, protected and exhorted the believers as their own child because their glory and joy was the believers.
