G12 Life Group Notes– January 06, 2013 – 6:30 a.m. Pastor Goudeaux __ Open in Prayer Song Testimonies Prayer of Three Witnessing Receive Offering The Purpose of Life Groups “Open Cell” Win Consolidation Disciple Send Acts 2:44-47 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Life Groups are extensions of the church • Life Groups are the bridges between the community/world and the church • Life Groups are not to be held at the church • Life Groups are to provide a bridge for the disillusioned, disenfranchised, disconnected, distracted, misinformed, and offended • You the Life Group leader are a resource, bringing revelation to the unfaithful • Life Group leaders are providing access for people to re-enter the church fellowship • Life Group leaders provide accountability • The Life Group’s sole purpose is to WIN • Life Groups should not be a bible study • Life Groups are about building relationships and connecting or reconnecting people to the church The Power of the Chair Every Life Group meeting should have an open chair as the focal point for its attendees, “The Power of the Chair” • The Goal is to fill the chair • When you fill the chair - the Kingdom WINS! • Every meeting should have an empty chair • Everyone should try to fill the chair for the next meeting • Close your meeting with a prayer exhorting all for the opportunity to fill the chair Ask for Prayer Requests Close in Prayer
