We’ve been reading about the birth of the church after the ascension of Jesus this week. We’ve seen how Jesus didn’t leave His followers to flounder on their own, but commissioned them and empowered them with the Holy Spirit.
Discuss with your small group what you’ve drawn from your reading this week and how God has spoken to you. In your discussion, consider the following topics:
- What were the requirements of those coming into the family?
- What did “doing church” look like in the beginning?
- How was the church characterized during that time?
You can also pull from the questions in each day’s reading and use the HEAR method as your structure for discussion.
If you aren’t currently in a group we’d love to help you connect with one. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or go to mybelmont.org/smallgroups
