Why the Church? | 1 Peter 2:9-12
Aaron Gray | November 20, 2016

Discussion Questions

  1. Of all the descriptions/metaphors of the church in these verses, what stood out to you? What surprised you? What encouraged you most?
  2. How does the gospel help us avoid the trap of separating righteousness and justice?
  3. What areas of service and engagement have stirred your heart in recent weeks? Where is God calling you to engage?

Prayer Points

  1. Pray that Sound City would be a both/and church: focused on both worship/theology/righteousness and engagement/service/justice.
  2. Pray that God would use you individually to share the gospel—both in word and deed!—with those in your life.

Action Steps

  1. Review the action steps from the previous four weeks and follow up with any that you missed.
  2. Talk with your community group about any Local Mission Initiatives that you want to engage in together.
