05 Jan Discussion Guide: Our Opportunity
Before We Get Started
For our discussion today we will be using the sermon series discussion guides. If you would like to follow along you can access this discussion guide on the website at mosaicchurchaustin.com and then select “community group resources” in the menu options.
Because the main goal of our time together is to establish relationships and learn how to walk with one another in all that God has called us to be and do, we’d like to begin by praying for one another. So, does anyone have anything you’d like us to pray for, or anything to share regarding how you’ve seen God moving in your life that we can celebrate together.
This Week’s Topic
We kick off the new year with something a little different. Before we step into our Amazing Grace series we wanted to take a week to talk about the opportunity God has placed before us in the upcoming year. Who is He calling us to be and how might we go about accomplishing that calling? What part do we have to play and what commitments might we need to make in order to carry that out. Let’s talk about it and see what God has in store for us.
What is your favorite thing that we did as a church community in 2019? Why?
Alan Hirsch, Missiologist
“It’s not so much that the church has a mission, it’s that God’s mission has a church.”
What is something you feel God might be calling us to do in 2020?
What things could possibly threaten to keep us from achieving that calling?
What kind of habits and choices would help us achieve that calling?
1 Corinthians 15:58
“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
Do you know any one who could benefit from, or maybe is even in need, of what God is doing in our church community? If so, how might you invest in that relationship and invite them to be part of our community?
How can we help you connect that person to our community?
What can we do this year as a group to help our city see Jesus more clearly?
