Read Lesson 1 and answer the questions below.
"Our goal is to become a "community" of students on campus."
"Only in the Body can the gifts of the Holy Spirit find meaning. Only in the Body can multifaceted ministry best occur. Scattered Bible studies alone are not sufficient for a full and balanced growth in Christ"
Q1: How does becoming a community on this campus help us to grow in Christ?
Community has 3 Primary Characteristics: Proximity, Relationships, and Focus.
Q2: Do we have these 3 characteristics here at Chi Alpha? If so, why are they necessary to help create better disciples?
Read Acts 2:42, 46-47 together as a group:
“They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching, and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer…Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
Q3: Do you see the 3 primary characteristics necessary for community in this passage?
Q4: What are some ways that we can help make our fellowship more clearly resemble the image of community found in Acts 2?
