This Weeks ?’s

Leader Hints are designed to help guide a leader to some information that we want to “tease” out of the group.  They are not there for you to directly read to the participants.  People are significantly more likely to remember things they said or came up with, so your goal is to help direct them to that answer.
FINAL NOTE:  Our goal is to get to the [APPLICATION QUESTION] to help work with people through how to apply what God is doing in their life.



    • Do you like that we have seasons? Have you ever lived anywhere that doesn’t?
    • Recall last week’s application question: “What concrete steps did you take to worship with awe, abandon, and intimacy?” Does anyone have an example of this?


    Trail 4: What’s my purpose?

    • Read Matthew 28:18-20. So, what is our purpose?
    • What is a disciple of Jesus and what does it mean to make more?
      • Leader Hint: Someone who is becoming like Jesus.
        Leader Hint: Baptize others and teach them everything Jesus has commanded.
    • But practically, how do you start?
      • Leader Hint: Harmony’s mission: Advancing the Kingdom by living for God and loving people.

    Trail 5: What Happens if I mess up and Sin?

    • Read Romans 8:1-2 and Galatians 2:19-21
    • Kent said, “To be God’s person means to crucify your old life – die to your old desires, not fight them.” How do you die to a sin or desire?
      • Leader Hint: You must admit you lived for it, that it gave you something. Then replace that desire with something God offers.
    • What is something you struggle with and how can you replace it with something from God?
      • Example: I gossip because I crave community with others. I could join a serve team to seek that community in a God-like way.

    Trail 6: Will This Last? I’m worried I’ll go back to my old life.

    • Kent said, “Our faith journey is a marathon.” What two things are needed to have lasting power as a follower of Jesus?
      • Leader Hint: 1) Being proactive about God’s love and 2) Engaging God with Grit.
    • How do we be proactive with God instead of reactive?
      • Leader Hint: Reading Scripture to know God, constantly evaluating your life to move it closer to Jesus’ way of life and hold the things of this world loosely.
    • How do we engage God with Grit?
      • Leader Hint: Kill Excuses and create priorities around God (do the hard things).
    • Being proactive or being determined. Which way of thinking resonates with you the most?

    Application Question: 

    • Between finding a purpose, dealing with Sin, and developing lasting power for God, which do you need to focus on this week? Commit to diving deeper into one of these questions and see where God meets you.
    • Take up prayer requests and pray as a group.

    Submit a Prayer

    Does your group have a prayer request that you think would be helpful for our care ministry team to know about and be praying for?  Submit it below:

    Our church has an INCREDIBLE care ministry team.  They regularly pray over the needs in our church and contact those who need care.  If you need prayer, please submit your request here.

    Prayer Request Submission

    Prayer requests remain on our list for two weeks. If the need is on going, please resubmit or contact our prayer team.

    Would you be interested in learning more about joining our care team and praying for the needs of those in our church and caring for them?

    I would like to have someone follow up with me and personally pray for my need with me. You will receive a phone call or text from one of our team member if you select this option
