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.



    • What do you all think of the “Encounter” announcement?
    • Recall last week’s application question: On Easter, Kent challenged us to commit to being in a place – mentally, physically, and emotionally – where God could meet with you and you can learn about His love. Did you notice a difference in these 4 weeks? What were some of the actions that helped you the most? With what we’ve talked about today, will you continue these practices?


    • Can anyone summarize the parable that Kent preached on? This can be found in Matthew 13:1-9, Mark 4:1-9, and Luke 8:4-8.
    • Read Matthew 13:18-23 as Jesus explains the parable.
    • Do you ever feel like you are just going through the motions in church? What type of soil represents this? What helped you move from this to an active disciple?
    • What would an environment of good soil look like for you to grow fruitfully in Christ?
    • What are some obstacles that prevent us from being good soil for God’s work, and how can we overcome them?
    • How can we provide good soil for someone else to grow fruitfully in Christ?
    • In what ways do you think our culture’s focus on entertainment and distractions affects our ability to be good soil for God’s word?
    • Do you think that there are certain personality traits or life experiences that make it easier or harder to be good soil? Why?
    • How can we cultivate a deeper understanding of Jesus’ teachings in our own lives, especially when we are bombarded by so many other distractions?

    Application Question: 

    • What are some practical steps we can take to become better stewards of our hearts and minds and to create an environment for our hearts and minds that is conducive to growth and transformation in Christ?
    • 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
