SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY


Weekly Discussion Questions to assist in your time together are listed below.


_____________________________

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42

____________________________


Fellowship isn't just something we do on Sunday mornings. It's gathering together in various groups to discuss Scripture, enjoy each others' company, support each other, share meals, and pray with and for one another. And while we do these things in many ways in our whole-church Sunday gatherings, meeting together through the week in smaller groups allows us to do this in a more intimate setting, allowing us to grow deeper in our relationships with each other and with God.


If you would like to know more about the small groups, please feel free to contact the leaders directly, or you can talk to a pastor or elder, a person who attends a group, or someone in the office.

Small Group Discussion Questions

August 12, 2018

Reflect:

  • How would you explain the difference between going to and belong to a local church? Would you say you go to or belong to FCBC? Who’s a part of your gospel community?
  • Throughout the week, how have you seen the church is a people not a place?
  • Have you ever known (or been) a self-confessed Lone-Ranger Christian?
  • Do you think it makes any difference if a person is a member of a church or not?
  • What has been the greatest blessing of being part of FCBC?
  • What myth about church most impacted you? Why?

Repent:

  • What about 1 Pet. 2:4-10 challenged your “spiritual” consumerism in church?
  • What about 1 Pet. 2:4-10 challenged your independence and autonomy as a Christian?
  • What about 1 Pet. 2:4-10 challenge your self-sufficiency.

Remember:

  • According to 1 Pet. 2:4-10, what characteristics defined the church? List.
  • According to Acts 2:42-47, what characteristics defined the church? List.
  • According to Eph. 2:19-22, what image describes the church? How does it help you understand the church?
  • According to Eph. 5:22-32, what image describes the church? How does it help you understand the church?
  • According to 1 Cor. 12:112-26, what image describes the church? How does it help you understand the church?
  • On what have you built your identity? Have you built it on your ethnicity, your education, your socio-economic status, your job, etc. – or on Jesus Christ?
  • What is the impact on your spiritual life when you either forget who you are in Christ or replace your identity with something other than Jesus Christ?
  • How have you tended to view your Christianity in individualistic terms – my devotional, my faith, or my relationship with the Lord? In what ways is the Lord calling you to identify and engage with His people?

Discipleship:

  • How are you using your spiritual gift?
  • Consider having a conversation with your kids about the importance of church membership. Encourage them to look forward to a day when they’ll have the opportunity to join a church as a member.
  • Whom do you know who isn’t connected to a church or who attends church but isn’t connected to small group or another meaningful form of gospel community? Commit to invite them to join you.
  • If we better grasped this idea of being a “people” or “nation” how would that affect our interactions at FCBC?
  • Christian are you prepared to give an answer for why you attend church. Work through with your small group answers to these points of view you are bound to hear today…
  • I wish I could take all the best things from the local churches to combine. I’m looking for the best church “according to me.” What’s wrong with church shopping? What if you can’t find the perfect church?
  • I’m doing church by myself or with my family at home? Why is doing church away from church not church?
  • My small group is my church. Why can’t your small group be your church?
