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.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

March 8, 2020

Reflect
  • How much has the consumer mentality affected the church? Should the church see itself as being in the business of “meeting needs?"
  • What are some famous partnerships in the world? Economic partnerships—Apple. Sports Partnerships—Brady and Belichick? How is Paul and Timothy an unlikely partnership?  
  • What kind of card did the Philippians send Paul? What kind of card did Paul write back to the Philippians? 
Repent
  • What does your joy reveal about you?
  • What does your affliction reveal about you? 
  • What does your affection reveal about you? 
Remember
  • Big picture: according to Phil. 1:1-11, what does it mean to partner? List as many characteristics of biblical partnership as you can find. Ex- partners pray for each other.
  • What is a saint? What is the significance that Paul’s calls the entire Philippian church—“saints” and himself a “servant.” How does your view of who a “saint” is impact your partnership in ministry?  
  • Why is being connected to a local church not optional for a Christian? 
  • What does Philippians 1 it teach us about the true nature of joy? Is it circumstantial?  
  • Why is it essential to determine what love is from Scripture rather than from our cultural ideas of love? 
  • Why must love be rooted in truth? What happens when it’s not?  
  • Can we have Christian partnership at the expense of truth (John 17:14-21; Eph. 4:3-6, 13)? 
  • Agree or disagree: Who Christ saves; he enslaves. Why or why not? Is there such a thing as knowing Christ as Savior, but not as master?  
Discipleship
  • How can you practically keep the big picture that “what God starts, he finishes”? Example: Journal; Prayer book, to see your progress.
  • How can we do a better job of including and incorporating new people into our faith family? 
  • How can you develop heartfelt affection for a brother or sister you can’t stand being around?
