May 23, 2010 - Growth Group Study Guide

  1. 1. Application 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. Summer Plans: 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 by degrees. through the summer months you may want to share email addresses and give everyone permission to send out prayer requests as they come up.
