Why Church? Week 2

Worship, Love, Compassion
1. What is your favorite part of baptism celebrations? What about this particular one? Was there a story that stood out to you? Inspired or motivated you?
2. Did you grow up near to the things of God but were still far away personally? Share with your Team what that experience was like. Did you you grow up far away from the things of God? Share with your Team what that experience was like.  
3. What was the tipping point for you to where you crossed over to make Jesus Lord of all your life? What are some areas you can spur each other on and encourage each other to grow in that relationship?
Helping one another experience Jesus
Communion is where we take time to remember and celebrate what Jesus did, has done in our lives, and what he is doing in our lives and faith communities. Observe communion together as a Team next time you gather.
Helping people far from God experience Jesus
Revisit the conversation from question #3. Work together on how you would articulate your story to someone far from God. Are there people on your Team who have not made the public declaration of faith through baptism? Begin that conversation and point them to summer baptisms as an opportunity to take that crucial next step.
