Big Time Dreams require _____________________________________.

The areas that you ___________________________ are the key to your spiritual growth because they _________________________________________.



What is the biggest risk you have taken in life?  Why did you do it?

Very briefly describe the time you first put your faith in trust in Jesus.

“Big Time Dreams Require Big Time Faith”  Do you agree or disagree with that statement?  Why?  Besides becoming a follower of Jesus, what is the greatest faith-related risk you’ve taken?


Read Acts 2:42-47.  In the message we heard about 6 specific areas that are important to being the kind of church God dreams for us to be.  Can you recall what they are?

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

Look at each of the 6 areas individually.  As a group, discuss why you think each one is    important to the health of our church?


The areas we struggle with require the most faith…and the greatest dependence on God.  Can you name the two areas that are your greatest challenge?

Take time as a group to pray for each person for the courage and strength to take steps of faith and trust in that area.
