Listen to Sunday's Sermon http://yourcbcfamily.org/sermons/2012/11/11/sunday-what-is-church-1.html
Note to Leaders: The goal this week is for the group to catch a taste of the excitement that the first century believers had. Encourage your group to think about when they first came to Christ. A good action step would be for the group to commit to sharing their story of meeting Jesus with at least one other person this week, and inviting them to church. Some of these questions may be difficult to answer. They are not intended to shame or guilt anybody, but rather to take inventory.
Ice Breaker: What is your favorite thanksgiving food?
What makes Jesus so special that a movement began and continues even today?
Those who witnessed Jesus resurrection went viral in their sharing of "The Way" what would it take to excite you to share your experience in Christ with others?
How important is it that we share our story of meeting Jesus with other people? When was the last time you shared your story, or invited a friend to church?
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV)
"The Way" promises radical transformation. What has transformed in your life? What is currently being transformed? What needs to be transformed?
How much do you identify with Pastor Ron's "Big Ron, Little Jesus" sketches?
What do you think of when you imagine being consumed in Jesus?
How does one get "in Christ"?
Share an example of facing something while in Christ vs facing something while you try to maintain control?
