Welcome to a New LifeGroup Session!
Before we jump into our study, let's take a moment to remember that there are THREE things we want to see happen every time our LifeGroups gather:
- Movement towards Each Other
- Movement towards God
- Movement towards our Community
Our questions follow this same format. All of the questions are designed towards movement. We hope you enjoy your time together in your LifeGroup.
**Remember, our goal is to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. Use the questions that are help and skip the rest.
CURRENT SERIES: Unleashed
We are all hardwired to worship. The problem is that we worship other things than a holy, righteous God. As believers, we are commanded to give praise to God. Often times our background, experience, personality, and preferences have restrained our expression of worship. This series will encourage us to unashamedly UNLEASH our praise to a worthy God!
Memorize Psalm 33:2-3
Listen to that song “It is Well” by Kristene Dimarco at least one time this week - loudly and thank God through your worship
Two Weeks Ago:
Take a step towards truly worshiping God and a step away from what others around you are thinking about you…
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!” Psalm 100:4
Movement Towards Each Other (know the people in your group)
What is the first concert/band you paid money to see perform live?
Movement Towards God (grow in your relationship with God)
What are some of the things God has been teaching you about worship through this series?
Have you taken any steps, large or small, to change how you worship?
Why is music such a big draw for people?
When you were a kid, what kind of music did you like?
How did your parents or older siblings influence what music you liked?
Do you still like that same type of music today? Same band?
How often do you go back and listen to the classics of music you liked/listened to when you were younger?
What is it about new music/styles that causes us to either love it or hate it?
Read Revelation 15:3; Psalm 144:9; Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16; Psalm 103:1-3
Why is praise such a big deal?
Have you ever received an award for something you accomplished?
What was it? How did it make you feel?
Why does it feel good to get recognition or praise for something we’ve done or accomplished?
What does it mean for you personally to praise God?
Should we always praise God in the same way? Explain
What would it be like to have the same conversation every day with your spouse or close friend?
How does your answer to that question apply to how we worship God?
What are different ways we can worship God?
What would be a different way (than what you normally do) for you to worship God?
When it comes to worshipping God, why is it hard for us to try something new?
What would it look like for you to try a different way to worship God? (See challenge below)
Movement Towards Community (they see the change in you)
This week. Listen to any worship song, alone, and choose a different way to express worship to God than what you normally do. Try it out. See what happens.
Halloween is just around the corner… Maybe you can make it a LifeGroup event!
