Back to the Basics: Building Small Group Foundations
Welcome back to the last week of this series! If you are in a small group, go around introducing yourself and share your feelings about math. (This could range from dread and fear to joy and mastery)
Ask a math whiz to read John 15:1-17
Lets review the last three weeks:
Goal: Be Connected: “Abide in Me, as I abide in you” (John 15:4)
Key thought: Loneliness is a spiritual condition. Connection is the spiritual solution.
?: Who are you connected to? How will you become more connected?
Goal: Be Loved: “As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you” (John 15:9)
Key thought: Love is our great purpose and goal.
?: How loved do you feel? What does love look like to you?
Goal: Have Growth: “This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit” (John 15:8)
Key thought: Growth is the divine result of a healthy creation
?: What “fruit” is your life bearing? How is it giving God glory?
This week’s Goal: Multiply: “the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:47)
Key thought: Spiritual Multiplication is growth that reaches other people.
?: How will you respond to God’s call to you to invite, teach, encourage, or evangelize?
3 Action Steps: Add 1 name and number to your address book. Go to the church website. Spend 5 minutes in prayer for a specific ministry.
Additional Scripture to read (go around the group) - how do they match to each goal?: Genesis 1:27-28, Matthew 13:1-9, Timothy 4:8-10, Hebrews 10:25, 1 Corinthians 12:7, 1 Corinthians 13, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
