Lifegroup Lessons

Found Week 3

Family Time (15 mins)
  • Vision: Invite someone in your Lifegroup to share what your Lifegroup’s vision means to them.
  • Connection Activity: Share your experiences of asking for something that depended on someone else’s generosity - what did you receive? How generous were people? How did that make you feel?
  • Announcements (see bottom of this doc)
  • Check-Ins: life updates, praise reports, etc.

Worship (-15 mins)
Bible Study (30 mins)  
If we want to see Biblical things happen, we need to live Biblically. This week will learn about prayer from the book of Acts.
  • Split your group into 3 or 4 smaller groups (depending on how many people you have).
  • Assign each group one of the following passages:
    • Acts 1:21-26 (the apostles pray to discern a replacement for Judas)
    • Acts 4:23-31 (the believers pray for  boldness)
    • Acts 12:5-17 (believers pray for Peter’s release from prison)
    • Acts 20:36-21:6 (Paul leaves the Ephesians and sails to Tyre)
  • Have each group read through their passage and reflect on the following questions:
    • What does this passage tell us about the kind of situations in which people choose to pray?
    • What does this passage tell us about how people pray in those situations?
    • What happens as a result of prayer?
    • How does this passage help you to pray?
Discussion Questions:
Have each group share their findings with the larger group. After each group shares, discuss the following:
  1. What does this mean for us? (As a lifegroup and a church.)
  2. As a lifegroup: How do we want to pray more ‘biblically’? What are one or two practical things we do?
  3. As part of a church: How can we respond to start to see our church family live more ‘biblically’?

Looking Forward
Go back into your small groups and have each small group pray/intercede using the things they discussed. We want to be a people who choose to pray in our everyday situations of  life, and depend on God to move.
