First listen to the sermon (posts Sun. afternoon). Then use the ideas below to help you and your group apply what the Lord is teaching you.
Icebreaker idea: What makes someone a great leader – the kind of leader you'd gladly follow even if it leads through difficulty and hardship?
A way to pray: Pray for each other to follow Jesus with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Ask the Lord to use us to draw those in our lives to follow Him, too, as we seek to see 2,000 people by 2022 baptized and growing in relationship with Jesus through the Word, prayer, and community.
Talk It Over:
Treasuring God: What specifically did Jesus win for me through His crucifixion and resurrection? How does this make me adore God even more?
Being Transformed: In what areas of my life is Jesus calling me to follow Him more faithfully?
Loving Others: Who is God calling me to influence to follow Him? What role have prayer and sharing played in loving them so far? How can I grow in this?
Pursuing Unity: How does the death of death empower and motivate me to pursue unity with everyone – regardless of past difficulty or disagreement?
