WEEK_04

THE HOLY SPIRIT/ PEACE

(AS WE RELY ON THE HOLY SPIRIT AND NOT OUR OWN STRENGTH,

WE GAIN PEACE, FREEDOM FROM ANXIETY AND WORRY)


WELCOME

DINNER PARTY

LEADERS!

THIS PAGE WILL BE WHERE YOU ACCESS EACH WEEK’S DISCUSSION QUESTIONS AND ICE BREAKERS. BE SURE TO LOOK THROUGH THIS BEFORE YOUR DINNER PARTY SO YOU KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. WE ALWAYS WANT TO BE PREPARED IN EVERYTHING WE DO.

WE WANT YOU TO REALLY CONNECT WITH YOUR GROUP AND BE INTENTIONAL. DON’T RACE TO GET THROUGH THE QUESTIONS. IF SOMEONE IS REALLY OPENING UP, FEEL FREE TO ENCOURAGE THEM. THIS IS NOT A BRAVE LIFE GROUP, BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE CREATING COMMUNITY BY GENUINELY CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE:

PSALMS 139_23-24

23 "GOD, I INVITE YOUR SEARCHING GAZE INTO MY HEART.

EXAMINE ME THROUGH AND THROUGH;FIND OUT EVERYTHING THAT MAY BE HIDDEN WITHIN ME.PUT ME TO THE TEST AND SIFT THROUGH ALL MY ANXIOUS CARES.

24 SEE IF THERE IS ANY PATH OF PAIN I’M WALKING ON,AND LEAD ME BACK TO YOUR GLORIOUS, EVERLASTING WAYS—THE PATH THAT BRINGS ME BACK TO YOU." THIS SUNDAY WE LAUNCHED A NEW COLLECTION CALLED THE HOLY SPIRIT. WE ALL FACE BATTLES THAT SEEM IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERCOME ALONE. PASTOR DAVID SHARED THIS SUNDAY THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT ISN'T SPOOKY OR WEIRD, HE'S OUR GUIDE. TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS, AS YOUR DP LEADERS WE'RE HERE TO BE A PERSON YOU CAN TURN TO, ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE, OR POINT YOU TO THE RIGHT PERSON THAT CAN ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS!


01_

Whether you were here this Sunday or missed it, you've probably heard about The Holy Spirit before.

TO KICK OFF THIS DISCUSSION WE WANT TO KNOW WHO YOU THINK THE HOLY SPIRIT IS, OR WHO YOU THOUGHT HE WAS BEFORE YOU LEARNED MORE ABOUT HIM.

(DP LEADERS, KEEP THIS CONVO LIGHTHEARTED AND GENERAL FOR A NON-CHRISTIAN OR NEW CHRISTIAN TO PARTICIPATE IN)


02_

God gave us the Holy Spirit as an inner voice, as our guide, and as our friend.

HE'S READY TO COMFORT US AT A MOMENT'S NOTICE. IF WE KNOW THIS ABOUT GOD, WHY IS IT SOMETIMES HARD TO TURN TO HIM?


03_

Pastor David shared 3 prayers we can turn to for guidance this week.

"HOLY SPIRIT SHOW ME"

"HOLY SPIRIT CHANGE ME"

"HOLY SPIRIT FILL ME"

WHAT ARE YOU PRAYING/BELIEVING FOR THIS WEEK?

(DP LEADERS, REMIND THE GROUP THEY CAN BE OPEN AND HONEST ABOUT WHATEVER THEY'RE WALKING THROUGH, AFTER EVERYONE HAS SHARED WHAT THEY'RE BELIEVING FOR PRAY OVER THE GROUP.)
