For Reflection/Discussion: What lessons have you learned in your experience as a Christian that might be helpful or encouraging to someone who is just starting out as a follower of Christ? Do you have an older, more mature Christian who is helping you grow in your faith? If not, why not? Are you helping, encouraging, or mentoring a younger believer? If not, why not? How can participation in a Growth Group give us opportunities to teach and to learn from other believers? What are the advantages and disadvantages of being in a Growth Group of all men, all women, or people of just one age group?
