Big Time Dreams


The dream I want to see become reality is…

Some dreams are good, but ______________________________________.

Matthew 16:16-18

Acts 1:8-9

Acts 2:22-24, 36-41

Acts 2:42-47

God dreams of a church that:

________________         ________________         ________________

If we want to realize God’s dream for us, it’s going to take _______________________________  giving __________________________________.

Isaiah 40:29      “He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.”

2 Corinthians 12:9     “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

Philippians 4:13     “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

Are you willing to ________________________________________for us?



What dreams did you have as a kid?

How would you complete this statement today: the dream I want to see become reality is…


Read Acts 2:42-47.  In the message we heard about three things (starting with the letter “g”) that God dreamed his church would be:  Can you recall what they are?

How do you see each of them portrayed in this scripture passage?

We’ll be unpacking those three things more fully next week, but for now…. which one do you think will be easiest for you?  Which of them do you think you will find hardest to do?  Why?


From the message: “If we’re going to realize God’s dream for our church, it’s going to take every one of us giving everything we’ve got.”  What does that statement stir up in you?

When it comes to the dream God has for His church and the part you play in it, what are the things that hold you back most?

Look up these verses from the message:  Isaiah 40:29    2 Corinthians 12:9    Philippians 4:13

How do they encourage you to embrace God’s dream for His church (and for you personally)?
