Life Group Meeting

Life group leaders – pace yourselves. Look over all of the meeting components and make sure you have time to cover all of them.

Before you begin looking at the questions, take 2 minutes for quiet reflection. You may want to write down any thoughts or impressions that come to you and anything that you feel the Lord is saying to you or to anyone else. How might you incorporate more reflection in your daily, weekly, and monthly routines?

After this exercise, begin looking at the questions. For each question, spend 1 – 2 minutes in silence before opening up for people to respond.

    1. Discuss what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
    2. Do you consider yourself to be a follower of Jesus? Yes, no, or uncertain?
    3. Discuss ways that having more disciples of Christ would make the world a better place.
  • Witness
    • Pray for 1 or 2 people that you want to become followers of Jesus.
    • Pray for boldness to build your relationships with unchurched people and to talk about Jesus.
    • What are our outreach plans? How can we work together as a team to develop friendships with new people?
  • Life Group Housekeeping (do this once a month or more often if needed)
    • Review our connection tools: e-Life & the life group email list
      • Does everyone know how to use them?
      • Is everyone’s information up to date?
      • Is everyone receiving email from the life group email list?
    • Is anyone not showing up for Sunday service or life group meetings? If so, who has been in touch with them?
    • How will we onboard the next visitor?

Life Groups

Without life groups, we are at the mercy of cliques and people who aren’t in a clique will “fall through the cracks”. Furthermore, even the people who are in cliques will have some of their issues and needs “fall through the cracks”. This is because life groups are organized to please, and be led by the Holy Spirit, whereas cliques develop solely around whatever the people in the cliques find appealing. Life groups are organized to help you grow and overcome your “issues”; cliques simply aren’t!

Check out our Life Group Pages for more life group information and resources.

Five Thresholds

Because the Five Thresholds approach to relational evangelism helps us to pay careful attention to the people that the Lord brings our way, it is an excellent way to meet people “where they are”. We want to prayerfully help them move through each threshold and become followers of Jesus. At any given stage, we may be planting a seed or watering a seed that we or someone else has planted. At each stage, we should see ourselves, together with other believers, as a hospital for sick and wounded people.
