move: the main event
Bottom Line: Movements, not moments, will change the world. Scripture References: “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.” (John 10:14,15 NIV). GOAL OF SMALL GROUP: To help students understand that serving is a mindset, not an event; and to encourage them to get in the habit of meeting needs when they can. Create meaningful conversation. Adjust questions as needed, and don’t feel like you need to answer all of them. FROM THE TENSION 1.
Name some causes or movements that are built around helping people.
What are some things that keep you from serving?
FROM THE TRUTH 3. Why do you think Jesus used the illustration of a shepherd? What occupation would that be like today? 4.
What benefits do you get out of serving other people?
Why is it better to think of serving as a constant movement than a one-time event?
FROM THE APPLICATION 6.
What are some needs you’ve observed in people around you? (Leaders, this could be physical, relational, financial, etc.)
Name one way you can start serving on a regular basis.
NEXT STEP Leaders, text your students this week and ask them to meet one need for one person before your group meets again.
