Sermon Discussion Guide: June 16

Discussion Guide

Conversation Starters

  • What’s your favorite summer destination?
  • LOVE Week is coming up soon (July 27 – August 3)! What are some ways you like to serve others? (Encourage members to find an organization they can serve with their talents or passions.)
  • If you were being celebrated for Father’s Day, would you rather get a riding lawnmower, golf clubs, or a top-of-the-line grill?


Encourage your eGroup to open their Bibles to the main scripture from the message. Ask someone in your eGroup to read it.
  • What stands out to you in these passages? Why?
  • How do you identify (or not) with what you read?

Make It Personal

  • If you had to explain the main point of the sermon to someone who wasn’t there, what would you say?
  • Which points from the sermon connected with you the most? Why?
  • How was your perspective challenged? How did that impact you?
  • What’s the easiest part of the message for you to apply to your life? What’s the hardest? Why?
  • How would next week look different for you if you took action steps to apply what you heard?

Act On It

  • Write down two or three steps to take this week to put the message into action.


Ask eGroup members to share any prayer requests they have. Record any notes or prayer requests to pray for members during the week.
  • Dear Lord, thank You for the message we received and how You are speaking to us through it. Help us to apply it to our lives, and teach us how we can continue to grow in the areas where we felt challenged. In Jesus’ name, amen.
