This week, we learned about the importance of Christian fellowship and community outside the four walls of a church building. City Central’s life group coordinator Casey Mock interviewed a panel of group leaders and attendees to hear more about the heart of home groups. We heard stories of vulnerability, support, and transformation. 

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.”

Acts 2:42

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”

Hebrews 10:24-25

“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”

Proverbs 27:17

Discussion Questions

  1. What does the Bible have to say about Christians meeting together outside of a corporate, Sunday morning reality?
  2. Why might someone be hesitant to join a life group? What would you say to someone “neglecting to meet together”, as the Scripture says? 
  3. How can we “stir up one another to love and good works” in the context of life groups?
  4. What is the benefit to discussing Sunday’s sermon with other believers?

Application Questions

  1. Are you in a life group? If not, seek to answer why this week. Is your answer in accordance with Scripture?
  2. Choose a life group to join this week and determine to “Stick 6” in that group (give it 6 weeks before trying another).
