commitment length

4 weeks

group structure

These fellowship groups will meet weekly for one hour to discuss a section of scripture together and spend time in prayer and praise. More details are explained below.

Apostles' Teaching (40-45 minutes)

This portion of the time will be spent discussing a passage of scripture together. These are the passages for each of the four weeks:

  1. James 1:19-27

  2. Romans 12:9-21

  3. Matthew 6:16-24

  4. 1 Thessalonians 4:9-18

For each passage, read it together slowly. Then discuss your responses to some of the following questions (if time permits, you can discuss all of them):

  1. What did you find meaningful in this passage?

  2. What did you find convicting?

  3. What did you not understand?

  4. What does this passage say about God? [or Jesus or the Holy Spirit]

  5. What is God asking us to do?

  6. What are you going to do with that?

 

It would be helpful if at least one person has a study Bible for reference.

Prayer & Praise (15-20 minutes)

Everyone can take a turn to pray and/or give thanks. If anyone prefers not to pray out loud on a given day, they can read a Psalm or another prayer recorded in scripture.
