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?

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.
