Discussion Guide

Conversation Starters

  • Fill in the blank: “If you want to know how to ______, then I’m the one you need.”
  • Would you rather give someone a home-cooked meal, a thoughtful gift, or an act of service?
  • Which of these would be hardest for you stop at one: one M&M, one potato chip, or one bite of cheesecake?


Ask eGroup members to share their favorite points from the sermon, what spoke to them, a phrase or moment from the sermon they related to the most, or questions they have. If members have a hard time recalling the sermon, talk through your notes and share your favorite points.

Make It Personal

This was a special weekend for our church — many people gave gifts, and we came together to choose words about what we’re believing God will do in 2020. This can be a great time of connection for your group, so feel free to use some of these questions just to share about and celebrate the year.
  • How did you prepare for giving weekend? Did God speak to you about your decision? Did He change anything about what you had decided on?
  • What word did you choose? Tell the group about it and why you chose it.
  • Obedience is being willing to let God set the direction when you don’t know the details. What direction(s) did God give you this year? How were you challenged to obey? (What’s the hardest part about obeying for you? Why?)
  • Read Acts 10:21. Who’s your “one” you most want to see brought to or changed by God? How can having that “one” on your mind change the way you obey and give to God? (This can even be someone in the future, like children you want to have.)
  • Several people shared their stories about why they give during the sermon. Which story did you identify with the most? Why? (Briefly recap each story if your group members don’t remember them.)
  • Share a story about how God was faithful this year. What are you believing He will do next year?

Act On It

Take a few minutes to write down what God has done for you through this ministry, then share it with your group. Celebrate how God has been faithful.

Text your word for 2020 to your group so you can pray for each other. You can also go to to enter your word into our word generator — you can then choose an image to download with your word on it so you can put it on your phone, computer, or social media accounts.

Prayer Requests and Prayer

Ask eGroup members to share any prayer requests they have. Record any notes or prayer requests to pray for members during the week.
Father, thank You for how faithful You’ve been in our lives, and for always being trustworthy of our obedience. Help us let go of our need to know the details so we can focus on following You, and use our obedience to bring others to know You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
