Get It Together

Session 1: Face It

Goal: Spend time getting to know your group and begin to Get It Together.

Fellowship: Have time to talk, eat, and get to know each other.

Pair Up:
New Groups: Ask the men in your group to pair up and get to know each other. Here are some initial questions to help your get started:

  • What’s your name? Are you married? Do you have children? How long have you been at Elevation?
    Go a little deeper with this question:
  • What is one of your proudest accomplishments?

If your group already knows each other:
Ask the men in your group to pair up and ask:

  • What is the best vacation you have been on?
  • What is one embarrassing thing that not many people know?
  • What is one of your proudest accomplishments?

Get To Know You: After a few minutes, ask everyone to share something they learned about their partner.

Set It Up:

  • Pray out loud for your time together.
  • Read out loud the introduction from the Get It Together notebook.
  • Ask someone to read Genesis 32:19-21 out loud.
  • Explain to your group: This week’s topic is Hidden Issues. We are going to watch a clip from Pastor Steven and then discuss how it relates to our lives.

Watch It: Watch the sermon clip and encourage everyone to take notes using their Get It Together notebooks.

Write It Down: Give your eGroup 10-15 minutes to answer the questions in their Get It Together notebooks.

Discuss It: Use your answers from the Get It Together notebook and the questions below to facilitate a conversation with your eGroup:

  • What was one concept from the sermon clip or notebook that stuck out to you and why?
  • We all made lists of things that are missing from our lives. What did you write down?
  • As men, why do you think we tend to hide?
  • Would someone like to share specifically what they are hiding behind?
  • It’s a hard thing to admit, but most of us are hiding because of something we are afraid to face. What are you hiding from?

Work It Out: Our eGroup will be working each week toward memorizing Philippians 2:1-16 together. We’ll recite what we’ve memorized and add additional verses each week.

Before next time:

  • Memorize Philippians 2:1-2
  • Complete the Challenge It activity in your notebook
  • Watch the full sermon – Hidden Issues

Close in Prayer
