A powerful expression of biblical community.
This is a setting in which people connect with a small group of friends who are mutually committed to caring for one another, growing in their faith, and impacting others for the cause of Christ. We invite you to find a group of friends that live near you so you can join them in “sharing life together.”
How to use these questions
During this difficult time, please use these discussion questions to help lean on God and discover how we can work through these issues together.
Even while in your home, you can use them for personal reflection, family discussion time or even go through them with friends on the phone or on Facetime.
If you have questions, feel free to email Pastor John: email@example.com
LifeGroup Study Guide – Week 6: “Don’t Put God in a Box”
Stepping In: Getting things started!
1- What’s something you’d like to do, or a place you’d like to go before summer is over?
2- Share a time when you realized God was much bigger than what you thought.
3 – What’s the value in knowing God is able to do more than we could possibly imagine?

4 – Share something with your group you really liked in this video.
Building Up: What is God saying?
1 – Read Ephesians 3:1. We may not be in prison for preaching about Jesus, but how can we relate to Paul in other ways in our culture today?
2 – Read Ephesians 3:2-6. We are all administrators of God’s grace. What does that look like for us in our daily lives?
3 – Read Ephesians 3:7-9. What does being a “servant of the Gospel” mean to you? How can we better serve the Gospel and its’ mission?
4 – Read Ephesians 3:10-13. The church is God’s plan A. There is no plan B. What do you learn about the mission of the church in these verses? How can we hold up the high calling of the church, even though the “church” sometimes messes it all up?
5 – Read Ephesians 3:14-19. What do we learn about prayer from these verses? What do we learn about God? What do we learn about ourselves?
6 – Read Ephesians 3:20-21. Give your group an example of a time God did immeasurably more than what you expected.
Living Out: How do I obey?
1 – Share with your group one person who’s on your list with whom you want to share Jesus. Spend some time as a group praying for opportunities (open doors) and the right words when the opportunities come.
2 – As a LifeGroup, you’ll be doing a service project together. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities to serve those in our Valley. When you come up with a plan, please let us know about it by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
