For the leader: Hopefully virtual groups are starting to feel a little more normal by now! I’m sure you can’t wait to sit in an actual circle with your people. We get it!  As Sean mentioned in the message, the Groups team has created some content to help members engage with Holy Week from their homes. This is a great opportunity for individuals and families to lead themselves during such a special week! We encourage you to encourage them to engage with the content. You will see it on all our social media platforms this week. As always, please let your groups director know if you need anything!


Questions

  • Have you ever experienced something painful that eventually led to something good?
    • ex. Someone broke up with you and later you met someone better, Lost a job only to get a better one later, Had to change schools & the new one was better
  • Are you experiencing a loss right now? Is it difficult for you to believe that something good will come from that loss ?
  • When Sean asked the questions below during the message, what came to mind? 
  • In relation to this season:  What specific things are you afraid will happen? How do you deal with worry? How does your mind respond to worry? 

None of us know where worry comes from, and honestly it doesn’t matter. But we do know the enemy has a plan for our worry. He wants to cripple us in fear, cause us to get self focused, and keep us from making healthy choices. But God has a plan for our worry too. His plan is to use worry to bring about something amazing! Read Philipians 4:6-7 together.

  • When we begin to worry, Paul teaches us to pray. He encourages us to pray in two ways:
    • Telling God what we need.
    • Thanking Him for what He’s done.
  • What thing are you worried about right now, and how can you implement this prayer in that area?
  • Has this season revealed anything to you about your personal relationship with God? Positives, negatives, major questions, big realizations?

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.    —Philippians 4:6 (NLT)
