ICEBREAKER Get in a circle with the people in your group. Each person takes turns calling out the gifts they see in another person in the group. How does that person serve as a minister in the local Church? How does that person help to bring about fellowship in the local Church? After speaking words of life into each person, take some time to worship the Lord and welcome Him with praise.

1. What is your definition of "ekklesia" and how does that impact your life?

 a. Who do you say that Jesus is?
b. What does true fellowship look like in a Church community?

MOVING FORWARD Ask group members to spend time on the following over the next week as they review the message and group discussion.
● Read the scripture verses from this week’s message and reflect on what you learned this week.
● Do you understand that you are called by God, that He has a special gift for you, and you are a minister?
● Join the Church in the annual Bible reading plan, if you have not done so already
● Spend time in worship encouraged by what you learned and heard from God during this week’s message.
