Life Groups restart the week of September 16!
 
Life groups are a key aspect of church community. Most meet weekly in the home of a group member (usually the leader’s home). We try to keep them limited to about 12 people. If a group is closed, it means that group is full. Let us know if you can’t find an open group!

Matthew 28

  1. What was truly at stake for the chief priests if word should get out that Jesus had risen from the dead? How did Christ’s resurrection threaten to affect their lives? Why do you think they resisted that change?
  2. In your own words why was the death of Jesus necessary? Think of how you would explain this to someone who doesn’t know Jesus.
  3. The angel’s words to Mary mention fear; searching for Jesus and not finding Him; the crucifixion; Jesus rising from the dead; a prompt to spread the news of Jesus’ resurrection; and more. Which of all these aspects stands out to you the most? Does one piece speak to you more than the others in this season? Explain.
  4. Why is it important to keep growing our awareness that Jesus is alive and that He is always with us? How can we accomplish this?
  5. Define discipleship. Have you ever discipled or been discipled by someone? How can you practice discipleship in this season of life?
  6. Looking back on our journey through the book of Matthew over the last year, what new or fresh insight have you gained from the Word and from the life of Jesus? How have you grown personally in your walk with God?
  7. Reading Acts 1:8, we can replace “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth” with Lake Stevens, Snohomish County, Washington State, and so on. How do you feel Jesus’ words in Acts 1:8 apply to you personally in this season of life? Where might the Spirit be leading you?
