God wants to move you from Loneliness to Community.

  • What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?

  • When/where have you felt the strongest sense of community?

  • Have you ever felt separated from community? How did it feel?

Read: Acts 2:42-47, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Ephesians 4:2, 1 Peter 4:9

  • Why do you think community is important? Or, if you don’t think it’s important, why?

  • What is your answer if someone asks to tell them about your church?

  • In the description of the early church in Acts, what appeals to you the most? Why?

  • Ephesians tells us to encourage one another. How do you encourage others? What encourages you?

  • How are you with patience? Are you more patient with people you know or with strangers? Why?

  • The 1 Peter passage tells us to offer hospitality. Have you offered hospitality in the past? Have you been offered hospitality by someone else? What was it like?

  • Do you feel like you’re a part of a community with the other people at SLCC? Why or why not?

  • What is something that you can do to improve the community? What is something that is currently being done well that supports the community?

Prayer: Pray you will see the opportunities for community and take advantage of them.
