Finding Life, Learning to Live, Living to Serve

Smith Grove Livestream

Discussion Questions:

  • How does unity of faith strengthen the church body and their ability to minister?
  • Why is sound doctrine such an important part of equipping the body for the work of the ministry?
  • Think about how Smith Grove equips believers. Is there room for improvement? What steps would you suggest to the leadership?

Pray Together:

Read 1 Corinthians 12. Spend some time in prayer asking for God to help our church be an example in living out our spiritual gifts through service to one another and to the world around us.

Gospel Connection:

Maybe your understanding of speaking the truth in love was challenged today. Take some time and read the following article: Speaking the Truth In Love | Desiring God 

How does this change your view of speaking the truth in love? How can you put this into action in your life?
