04.15.18 - We Are Sent!

Pastor Steve and Pastor Dillon Join us Wednesday Night for the Gathering Dinner from 5:15 to 6:00pm. Followed by Sermon Based Small Groups or Birds and Bees. 1.) Have you ever participated in a mission trip or served somewhere that challenged you? What made you uncomfortable? How did you see God work in this situation?

Read John 20:19-23 2.) What do you think it means to be Christ-centered?

3.) Do you consider yourself as someone sent out on a mission?

“Our God is a sending God” 4.) Can you think of Biblical examples or modern day examples of people whom God sent?

5.) “As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” John 20:21 What did it mean for Jesus to be sent? What is Jesus’ expectation of us as his followers?

Application “Did you now that only 20 percent of churches in the US are growing, and only 1 percent are growing by reaching lost people. So 95 percent of the church growth we celebrate merely shuffles existing Christians around.” -J.D. Greer and David Olson 6.) Does this quote surprise you? Why?

7.) How does this make you rethink the way we reach out into our community?

8.) In what ways can you begin to reach out to those who do not know Christ?
