ACCOUNTABILITY We will meet with our groups at least once per week on the phone, video chat, or face-to-face. We should also check in throughout the week via text, quick call, etc. During your meetings, take time to discuss the reflection questions on the MGBC Discipleship page. Also, be sure to discuss Forged & Refined growth areas, catch up on life in general, and pray for each other.
BIBLE STUDY During this round, we are encouraging everybody to follow the "Christ & His Church: HOPE" reading plan from 1 Corinthians. Hard copies will be available at MGBC or you can go to the MGBC Discipleship site.
SELF-DISCIPLINE Choose a new habit you would like to develop over the next 5 weeks. Pick something in addition to the Bible Study, Prayer, and Service goals. These could include dieting, fasting, schedule changes, etc. If you choose to give something up, decide how to replace it with something better.
Examples: Give up sweets and replace with fruit. Give up social media and replace with family time. Give up watching TV and replace with reading Scripture. Wake up earlier than usual to work out.
Before we start, write out your goal and how you hope to achieve it.
PRAYER Each week we will pray for the following:
Prayer Partner: A family member or close friend. Contact this person regularly to share prayer requests. If you are married, choose your spouse if he/she is willing.
Potential Disciple: Somebody you hope will deepen his/her walk with Jesus. Possibly a new believer, younger believer, or nonbeliever.
Prayer List: In keeping with our theme of relationships, each week we will add a new person to your prayer list.
Write these down in the back of your booklet or somewhere noticeable so you will remember to pray.
SERVICE Each week we will be challenged with practical ideas to serve those around us. Feel free to use each week's suggested idea or pick another idea from our service ideas list.
We will also discover our own spiritual gifts and learn how we can serve in our local church.
