Discussion Guides

The group discussion guides help in community group meetings. You can review these guides before your meeting to be better prepared to discuss.

The kids discussion guides contain the same material that our Genesis Kids ministry uses on a Sunday (as well as a few family discussion questions). Use them to reinforce the lesson.

Remember to review our recent sermons to help prepare for your discussions!

We aren’t providing a discussion guide this week. Take some time and invest in your group (and your neighbors) in a unique way.

Discipleship Pathway

  • Worship: All of life is worship (Rom 12:1-2). Disciples are worshippers and gather together to worship and remember the Lord. At Genesis, our primary structure for fostering worship is our weekly worship service (which is a celebration of our lives together with Christ).
  • Connect: God has given us one another for caring, the bearing of burdens, fellowship, and living out our life (Acts 2:427-47). Community groups provide regular times to gather with a smaller groups of people from throughout the area for this connection.
  • Grow: God has given us every blessing in Christ (Eph 1:3) and, at the same time, we are exhorted to pursue and grow in our God-given and God-sustained faith (2 Pet 1:3-11). Discipleship groups (D-groups) are made up of 3-5 men or women who meet for a year to pursue the Lord, live accountably, and pray others come to know him.
  • Serve: Disciples are to reflect their Lord’s heart for service. Service teams are a mechanisms for us to use our gifts and serve others. Service teams are not the only way to serve, but do provide opportunities for us to regularly engage in service.
  • Go: Jesus commands his disciples to go and make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:18-20). At Genesis, we encourage regular local evangelism and as well as ways to pray and contribute to global missions and gospel advancement.
