Worship: I made it a priority to gather for worship.
Connection: I participated in a connection group or bible study.
Serving: I gave of my time, talents and gifts in a significant way.
Generosity: I gave generously of my finances toward the mission of Jesus.
Conversation: I engaged in a spiritual conversation with someone who is not yet a follower of Jesus.
Invitation: I invited someone join me for our worship gathering or community-building event.

Read Matthew 12:1-14. Why do you think the religious leaders were so furious over Jesus healing this man? Did they have any real reason to be? Why or why not?
Last week we talked discussed why each of the 6 areas (from Acts 2:42-27) was important to a healthy church. This week discuss what you think makes each one challenging or difficult for people to participate in.
What were the tiles (areas) that you held back from putting on the mosaic this week? Why did you choose to do that?
Do you plan to take greater action in any of those areas this week? How so?
Community Building Event
Are you planning to go bowling next Sunday? Who are you are inviting to come? Who is your ‘backup plan’ if they can’t go? (Please try to ask as early in the week as possible!)
Pray for the people you are inviting.
