"The Family of God"
April 18, 2021
Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. - Ephesians 2:19-20
1. What was your family life like growing up? What did you feel were some of the best qualities/memories of your family? What were some of the more challenging aspects of your family you experienced?
2. In what ways (good or bad) has your own personal family upbringing or experience shaped how you see God and the church?
3. Pastor Steve referred to three hallmarks of a healthy church family. 1. Spending time together. 2. Demonstrate intimacy and care for one another. 3. Helping one another to grow. Of these three, which do you feel has come easiest for you in building a healthy church family at ICC and why? Which of these do you feel could use the most personal improvement?
4. What are some practical steps you can take to become a more connected member of the ICC family? How might God be asking you to contribute towards building a healthier church family here?
