Encounter God

Primary Scriptures: 1 Peter 4:10, Acts 2:46, Galatians 6:9

Discussion Questions:

  1. Where do think is greatest need for service at Faith Promise?
  2. If you are not currently serving at Faith Promise, what is keeping you from going ALL iN?
  3. This weekend, Pastor Chris asked a tough question: “What would Faith Promise look like if every Promisor played like you?”
  4. Read Galatians 6:9. How do you deal with serving fatigue?
  5. Read Ephesians 6:6-7. A primary difference between a volunteer and a servant is the heart behind the work.  How does it make a difference when you serve wholeheartedly?

Discovery Bible Method:
For deeper study, as an alternative to the questions above, read Galatians 6:9 and use the Discovery Bible Method to explore the passage.

Embrace Others

Suggestion: Consider breaking the group into twos or threes for this section.

One to greatest ways we show love to one another within the community of faith is to serve one another.  Is there something your group can do to serve you?  Or someone that your group can reach out to and serve?

Engage the World Around Us

Engaging at Faith Promise: If you currently serve at Faith Promise, describe what you do to the rest of the group and how others can get involved.

Engaging in Community and the World:  This weekend Pastor Chris quoted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.”  Has you group already got a plan to serve somewhere in the community this year?

Expand God’s Kingdom

Serving others is essential to expanding God’s Kingdom.  Read Philippians 2:1-4. How can you put others before yourself this week?

Leader’s Notes

ALL groups at Faith Promise should follow Jesus Christ and lead others to do the same. Below are the marks of a growing follower and disciple of Jesus.

– A follower of Jesus desires to encounter God through the deeper study and application of God’s Word.

– A follower of Jesus embraces people and values relationships on a deeper level so everyone can grow together.

– A follower of Jesus engages and serves the world around them and in their community, through local partners or God-directed opportunities.

– A follower of Jesus expands God’s Kingdom through development and multiplication of disciple-makers, possibly to lead more groups at Faith Promise.
