Community Group Leader’s Guide

For the week of April 28, 2019


1.  What is one thing you are looking forward to this upcoming summer?



2. What do you do in the midst of incredible misunderstandings?




3. Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything you heard for the first time or that caught your attention, challenged or confused you?





1. Are there years missing in the “scrapbook” of your life?  What was going on during that time?




2. What do the words found in Psalm 139:23-24 mean to you?




3. Read Matthew 6:12-15.  What do you see as the major reasons some of your relationships have been lost or less than they should be?

(The Lord invites us to pray as Jesus taught us in the Lord’s Prayer about our need to forgive  those who have hurt us, just as we’ve been forgiven by the Lord.  In order to offer forgiveness, we need to evaluate both our past and present relationships with others.) 


4. Read Matthew 5:23-24 and Ephesians 4:31-32. Can you recall specific examples of the freedom you felt when you forgave someone else for hurting you?

(The Matthew passage reminds us that we should, on a daily basis, admit any wrongs and make amends promptly.  The best way to do this is to reserve a daily quiet time with God for self-examination through prayer, Bible reading, and journaling.  The Ephesians passage instructs us to examine all the people and things we are holding resentment against.  The sins we discover then can be worked on to be released and break the hold they’ve had on us.)


1. Read Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, and James 5:16  Do you have someone involved in your life to whom you can go for advice?  If not, why not?

(Having someone fill this critical role for us is Biblical.  We are better together.  Another great reason to be part of a CG!  We need someone else of the same sex as ourselves whom we can trust to keep us balanced in our conflicts.  We need encouragement and truthful examination by a loyal and trusted friend who will support this process. Proverbs 27:17 says, “as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”  The phrase “one another” is used in the New Testament over 50 times.)



2.  What has been the highlight/benefit of being part of your Community Group?




3. How can the group pray for you?
