MISSIONAL COMMUNITIES

Guidelines for leading your group

Jesus calls us to be known by our love for one another,

which can only happen in community.

But... there's only so much we can get out of participation on a Sunday. With a handful of friends we can truly be known.  That's why we believe that as followers of Jesus, we need to participate in a smaller group as well as in a larger community. We invite you to join a missional community and grow with us as disciples of Jesus.

GOSPEL FLUENCY

QUESTIONS
 
As you study the daily readings, pause and ask these questions to better understand the good news.

1:

Who is God / Jesus?

3:

Who are we in light of that work?

2:

What has He done? What is He doing?

4:

How can we live in light of who we are? 

How to process feelings or circumstances using Gospel Fluency:

1:

What am I doing or experiencing right now?

3:

What do I believe God is doing or has done?

2:

In light of what I am doing or experiencing, what do I believe about myself?

4:

What do I believe God is like? 

If the answer to these questions is something we know is NOT true about God, then ask the questions again , starting with what we know about who God / Jesus is.
