Whether you are NEW online or visiting one of our campuses, we would love to get a chance to know you.
Conversation Starters help us dig deeper, connecting Sunday’s sermons with our Monday lives. These prompts have been designed to help Community Groups grow in their relationship with God, with one another, and with their neighbors. Please know that these questions are meant to be a resource to you. You do not have to follow them verbatim or get through them all. We trust you to know your group and to ask the questions based on your group needs.

1) Use 1-2 words to summarize the parable of the mustard seed and the yeast in the dough.

2) Who is an example of an ordinary person that made an extraordinary impact on your life?

3) Has there been a time when you have felt the kingdom of God is too slow in coming, or feel hope for Jesus’ reign diminishing? How does this parable help?

4) What is one thing in your day-to-day life that may seem small and insignificant, but when committed to God, could produce an extraordinary impact on you or someone else?

Title: The Mustard Seed
Scripture: Luke 13:18-19
Speaker: Bill Gorman,
>> God’s kingdom starts small but grows big
“This set of parables is a prime example of how Jesus tailored his teaching to speak deeply to the worlds and experiences of men and women.”
- Kenneth Bailey, Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes
>> God’s people look ordinary but are extraordinary
>> God’s work seems slow but is unstoppable
"Evil may so shape events that Caesar will occupy a palace and Christ a cross, but that same Christ will rise up and split history into A.D. and B.C., so that even the life of Caesar must be dated by his name." — Martin Luther King, Jr.
