Group Study


Watch the short clips below, and answer the questions associated with each.  You can do this alone - but it's always more fun with a group of friends!

Be sure to read/study the scriptures in each section.  God's word is the standard by which we measure all our thoughts and ideas.


1 | new things

Pastor Jim's first time golfing didn't go so well.  Thankfully, someone had the courage to tell him to keep practicing.  

Have you ever tried a new thing that didn't go so well at the start?

scripture: Ecclesiastes 3:1


2 | dreams

Dreams give hope.

Have you ever had a dream fulfilled?  What did you learn from it?

What is one thing you are waiting on or hoping for today?

scripture: Genesis 37:5-11, Psalm 105:17-20, 2 Peter 3:9


3 | don't give up

Pastor Jim points out that all the hardships drove Joseph closer to the Lord.  He excelled despite the circumstances.

How about you?  When things go wrong, are you typically drawn deeper into God or does it make you resentful towards Him?

scripture: James 1:2, 1 Peter 5:10
