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.
Read the selected readings for the week prior to group meeting.
Review the questions and jot down some answers or questions you might have.
Bring any questions to your meeting and discuss the findings with your group.
What A Group Meeting Looks Like:
Group assigns portion of reading to one person in the group to re-tell at next meeting.
When groups meets next, the person assigned, retells the portion as best they can by memory.
Group then re-tells story together again, without help from original teller (help and prompt each other).
The bible passage is then read out loud, pausing to note where points were missed or incorrect.
Facilitator has group answer questions.
As you study the daily readings, pause and ask these questions to better understand the good news.
