6. How is your Growth Group like and unlike the fellowship you
have just studied?
Thank God that the church is God’s Church!
7. What could you do to see your Growth Group become more
like what you just studied?
The Presence and Power of Holy Spirit is the greatest need of
the church in any age!
8. How has your Growth Group helped you to personally grow
as a follower of Jesus this term or year?
Personal transformation begins and continues through the
ongoing surrender of self to the Holy Spirit.
For most Growth Groups this will be their final meeting for
the year except for social gatherings. We encourage groups
to set plans to get together once a month through the
summer. Plan a BBQ, a day trip or a service project in order
to keep “connected” this summer.
Summer Prayer Tip:
Father- fill me, change me, and use me to change my world
As a way to continue supporting each other in prayer
through the summer months you may want to share email
addresses and give everyone permission to send out
prayer requests as they come up.
