UNSTOPPABLE

The Unstoppable Church in the Book of Acts
Sign Up


In this series, we’ll explore the incredible journey of the early church in the book of Acts – from its birth to its unstoppable spread throughout the known world. Filled with adventure, faith, dangerous missions and unbelievable miracles, we’ll discuss and discover how this unstoppable church wasn’t just a legend, but it was a model for today!

Each week, we’ll post a brief video discussion starter, along with a scripture setting your group will examine together.

The schedule will play out something like this…

  • 7:00 – Time of fellowship and catching up (Some groups will have snacks in homes or at the church, and some will meet at restaurants and coffee shops) (about 5 minutes)
  • 7:05 – Pray together for the group meeting (about 5 minutes)
  • 7:10 – Share feedback about the previous week’s discussion (about 5 minutes)
  • 7:15 – Watch discussion starter video (About 3 to 5 minutes long)
  • 7:20 – Read scripture selection (about 10 minutes)
    • One person reads it in the King James Version
    • Another person reads it in a modern language or amplified version for more clarity such as NLT, MSG, NET, AMP, etc
  • 7:30 – As a group, retell the scripture passage in your own words, working together to build the story and fill in gaps. (about 5 minutes)
  • 7:35 – Discuss together how the topic and scripture setting applies to your life personally, and to the mission and direction of the church. The discussion handout will have some tweetable statements to use use as discussion points. (About 25 to 30 minutes)
  • At the end of the group, you’ll get the scripture passages for the next group meeting.

Ground Rules

Here are some ground rules that will help each group session be fulfilling and rewarding for everyone…

  • No one person should speak for more than about two minutes at a time. This gives opportunity for everyone to share.
  • And on that note, everyone should attempt to participate in the discussion! While it’s not always possible, this should be the rule not the exception.
  • Absolutely no “hyperlinking“. This means no referring to another Bible study, preacher or author, sermon, verse, or text. Discussion should simply be based on the video, scripture passage, and personal experiences around those. This allows the scripture to speak for itself, God to breathe through it, and everyone to be on equal footing.
  • The only teacher in the room is the Holy Spirit. That being said, your group leader is the authority and facilitator to keep the discussion on-track and in-line with our church’s doctrine. Please respect and allow them to enforce these guidelines to ensure a great group experience!

Are you ready? Let’s move life forward together!
