Upcoming Formations Series

Beginning April 6, we will take five weeks to talk about Spiritual Formation. Out goal will be to take a good look at what it means to live the "Fruitful Life". Jesus used the parable of the sower and the seeds to identify multiplication as a primary outcome for those who hear and understand His Word. We'll explore how we can open ourselves to living a life oriented toward multiplication.

During the study, you can follow along with five devotional readings each week. We'll have the "Formations" book available at the church beginning March 30. This book will provide you with reminders from the sermons, as well as some new thoughts to contemplate as you go through your week.

Even if you aren't in a LIFEgroup, this would be a great time to get together with a couple other friends once a week and talk through the things you're hearing and reading.

Discussion Questions for Easter

Have several people ask the question, “What’s the most important thing you’ve ever done?”
Ask other people, “What do you hope to accomplish in the next several years of your life?”
Tell your class that today you’ll be talking about “life mission” or the one most important thing you do that drives everything else. Tell them that Jesus’ resurrection from the dead is the defining moment in history, so it should be the defining moment in our lives.
Read 1 Corinthians 15:12-19. How does the resurrection impact some of the crucial beliefs of Christianity?

If you had been a friend of Jesus when he was on earth, how would the resurrection have impacted your life? 
How do you think his followers then were effected by the resurrection?

20 Questions to Build Group Connections

Here is a great exercise for a new group. The instructions are pretty simple. Go around the group giving each person the opportunity to choose one question and answer it honestly. Anyone can follow-up with an opinion or clarifying question (no critiquing each other's answers, though). Once a question has been answered, no one else may answer that question.

If your group is larger, you may want to alter the rule and allow each question to be answered 2 or 3 times. Ideally, each person should end up answering 3-5 questions.

As the leader, pay attention to the conversation. Let the discussion run its course as this is how people in the group build their relationships with one another. You can use these questions, modify them or create your own.
