TD Fri. – Mini-groups Study on Jn. 14:15-31

Frequently Asked Questions | Oh My Cupcakes!

Hey TD,

We’re going to be continuing our journey in 1st century Palestine, where Jesus just told His disciples that He would be shortly leaving them during their final meal together.  Judas had just left to betray Jesus and now the disciples were in disbelief at what Jesus was telling them.

In our study “Because I Live …” we’ll continue our study of John 14:15-31; but this time we’re going to be doing it in mini-groups, where there will only be 2 – 3 TD’ers per group, each led by a TD intern or counselor.

In preparation for our time of study together, please read, re-read, and prayerfully work through the passage, jotting down notes, questions, thoughts, etc. as you do.  Read it as if your life, your future, your calling, your purpose, your impact depend on it.  Then, bring those thoughts to your mini-group, put them into the “pot,” and let’s see what the Holy Spirit cooks up for us!

Your mini-group leader will reach out to you and give you the Zoom or Google Meet link that you’ll be meeting at.  This should be a fun, meaningful, and insightful time.

We’ll meet as usual at 8 p.m.  Please be on time!  See you soon!

Have a great time!

TD SG – “Self-Perception & Communal Flourishing” SG Study/mp3

To be memorized by end of December – Rom. 12:1-5

 1Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

      3For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith. 4For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, 5so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

Hey TD,

We’ll be in our small groups this Friday to discuss Romans 12:3-5. Daniel’s teaching on that passage – “Self-Perception and Communal Flourishing” – was quite enlightening and useful in its approach.  Please download the small group study below and listen to the parts of the lecture that need refreshing before our small group time on Friday:
