  • How have you felt God’s presence in the past week?
  • Where have you seen God at work in your life in the last week?
  • How is your life in God?
  • How is it with your soul?
  • On a scale of 1 to 10, what number would you give to how close you feel to God today? Why?
  • How are you living as a disciple of Jesus Christ as you worship, grow, give, serve and share? (choose one today)
  • Where are you seeking guidance from God?
  • How can others in this group pray for you and your walk with God?
