Group Questions: Church at the Fair

What is your favorite fair food?

Kent tells us that the word church meant “Gathering” in biblical times and later morphed into “location”. How can the wrong definition for church affect the way its mission is carried out?

Read Matthew 28:18-20

What is the purpose of the Church?

Give some examples of how you have seen the church fulfilling its purpose in everyday life?

How does the idea of a people, not a building, make you re-evaluate your everyday?

Kent encourages us to be a part of a movement and not a monument.  Our Discipleship strategy is just one example of that. How does moving our Life Groups and Bible studies into homes, coffee shops, and diners help us become a “movement” and not a “monument”?

What are some other ways that your group can be part of a movement together?
