Dear Church Family,
We want to thank you for participating in Who’s Your One! Over 87 of you shared with us the name of your one. We will join you in praying for your one.
Matthew 18:19 says, “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”
This Sunday we will study a story from Luke’s gospel where faith, expectation, and creativity make a difference in someone’s life.
Be sure to come! Bring your one with you! God is at work!
STEPS TO PREPARE
PRAY FOR THE SERVICES AND FOR YOURSELF
AND ME AND THE OTHER TEACHERS.

MAKE PLANS TO ATTEND A PREACHING SERVICE AND A SMALL GROUP.
INVITE SOMEONE TO COME WITH YOU.
PREPARING FOR SUNDAY: SMALL GROUP QUESTIONS
Read Jesus’ mission statement found in Luke 19:10
“For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save the lost”
What drives you?
What things, spiritually, has God put on your heart that you long to see come to fruition in your lifetime?
Do you have significant dreams (such as people coming to faith in Christ} or are your dreams all tied to this life?
When was the last time you stopped to think about these dreams?
Read Luke 5:17-26
Answer the following questions:
Do you have an eager expectation of someone coming to faith?
Does your eager expectation move you to action?
What obstacles have derailed you from the mission?
What would it look like for you to dig a hole in the roof?
How did others play a role in your trusting in Jesus?
In what ways has Jesus transformed your life?
Why would you not long for this same type of transformation in others?
How can we pray for you today?
