SERIES BIG IDEA: We’re made for community. Finding and investing in a circle (Small Group) will make a tremendous difference in our lives, our spiritual journeys, and the advancement of the Jesus Mission.
This is a great small group promotional series to get your attenders to understand the Biblical basis for small groups and the role they play in the church.
Week 1 – CIRCLES ARE BETTER THAN ROWS
Message Big Idea: We’re made for community. We’re wired for connection. We experience community in a circle. That’s why circles are better than rows.
Scripture: Acts 2:42-47, “One Another” Scriptures
Week 2 – PREVENTATIVE CIRCLES
Message Big Idea: All of us will experience times in our life when we need the support and accountability of a circle. Connecting in a circle, a Small Group, is like a retirement account, if you wait, it won’t be there when you need it.
Scripture: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, Mark 2:1-12
Week 3 – EXPANDING CIRCLES
Message Big Idea: The Jesus Mission calls every one of us to be intentional about reaching out to include others in our circles.
Scripture: Acts 10:1-48, Genesis 12:1-3
Week 4 – REPRODUCING CIRCLES
Message Big Idea: We advance the Jesus Mission when we reproduce circles. That means reproducing Christ-followers, apprentices, small groups, teams, campuses, churches, networks, and movements.
Scripture: Acts 1:8, Acts 16:1-5, 2 Timothy 2:1-2
