WELCOME to the Going Deeper Discipleship Resource Hub

The following questions, activities and processes will be updated monthly to correspond with the sermon series. You can engage with these resources on your own, perhaps while journaling – but they are intended to do with a partner or a small group. Grab some friends, others you live with/near, or are in a current group (d-group, Missional Community, Digital Neighborhood) and discern together what of the resources below will be fruitful for the time you have. There are options for every week, but if you are meeting less frequently that will not be a problem as the plans need not be sequential.

Notice that you can mix and match the different options for questions and activities. Decide together what will help you to go deeper together during the time you’ve set aside.

For additional discipleship resources check our archive at any time.

If you are having trouble finding others to connect with let us know here.

Reach out to our team at any time with any questions!

 

UP, IN, & OUT Triangle:

Pick one question from each part of the Triangle (See the video above about the Up, In, Out triangle). The goal is to help us go deeper with God, each other, and the world around us. We believe that asking these questions in community can help us grow and establish healthy rhythms of life.

For a longer list of questions to choose from click here.

UP Questions:

  1. How am I connecting with God?
  2. Am I living in the power of the Spirit?
  3. Do I make enough space for prayer?

IN Questions:

  1. How am I really?
  2. Am I resting enough?
  3. Am I making myself vulnerable to others?

OUT Questions:

  1. Who is God calling me to love?
  2. Am I loving with God’s love?
  3. Am I seeking ways to leverage my privilege for the sake of the oppressed or marginalized?

Additional Questions:

  1. What is God doing in my Life?
  2. How will I respond?
  3. Where am I seeing the kindness of God in my life, others’ lives, and the world around me?
  4. What are some of the key moments that have led you to where you are in your walk with Jesus today?
  5. What are some of the ways you connect with God throughout the week? What draws you to those practices?
