Opening Questions

  1. Who is the most generous person you know? What makes them generous?
  2. Every week we gather to celebrate what God is doing in our lives and to be unified in our mission of helping people find their way back to God. This past Sunday was Celebration Generosity, the one weekend we give our entire offering away in support of partner initiatives to accomplish the Jesus Mission. What value do you see in our whole Church getting behind these three teams (Local, Regional and Global)?

Bible Discussion

  3. Jesus turns the small amount the disciples scraped together and turned it into a feast. What does this tell us about Jesus and our work as his followers?
