Serve the Community

We are called and equipped by the Holy Spirit to share God's love by participating in the ministry of Jesus. He has given us agency with Him to fearlessly influence our society and the world. When we serve in the world and in His Church, we impact those around us and reveal God's glory.

Connect & Reflect

  1. Reflecting back on this weekend's message on "Serve the Community" or the video message recap we just watched together, how did you sense God's Spirit speaking to you? Any new things that you learned? Any new steps the Spirit was stirring you to take?
  2. Did you interact with the Daily Reflections this past week?  If so, were any of them impactful?  Feel free to look through what you recorded in your Life in Rhythm journal as you share with the group.
  3. Did you take the spiritual gifts assessment?  What were the results?  How have you been able to use your spiritual gifts?  Do you have any questions about spiritual gifts?
  4. Invite someone to pray, asking God to use your group in powerful ways through the Serve Experience.  Ask for greater understanding in how God is using Friends in our three Missions initiatives and how God might be calling your group to ongoing involvement.
