How do you decide what’s not worth arguing about? Who’s to blame for the spread of the Coronavirus? We don’t always see eye-to-eye. The question for each of us is: what do we do when we disagree—when the other person seems to miss our “right” way of seeing things? A lot of us spend an enormous amount of time persuading—trying to get others to subscribe to our point of view. But what if that approach doesn’t work? What happens when you talk until you’re blue in the face and the other person still stands his or her ground? Let’s consider a different approach to deal with our differences.

How dependent is your forgiveness on someone else’s apology? How do we forgive someone who has hurt us? Can you forgive the person who infected a loved one with the Coronavirus? It’s hard and seems counter-intuitive but forgiveness is always the right thing to do. Join us this week as we take on this difficult topic.

When have you received stellar service? Good customer service is about doing what’s right and helping the other person. We have seen this played out during the COVID-19 crisis. People doing the right thing and helping others. When we’re talking about relationships, the principle still applies: we strengthen our relationships when we help and serve the other person. Serving is a tangible way to love others. Join us as we discover the biblical mandate to serve by carrying the burden of others.

When have you wanted to be first in line? We are amused by news stories about people who camp out overnight to be one of the first to purchase the latest phone, tablet, or gadget. Being first isn’t always a good thing. Nobody would want to be the first to have the Coronavirus in their church or community. Being first can be a detriment to relationships. Join us this week as we consider a better way: being more concerned for others than ourselves.

What invention or innovation has been a “game changer” for you? It’s hard to imagine navigating these unusual weeks in the midst of a global health crisis without streaming TV, social media, and online conferencing tools like Google Hangouts or Zoom. These daily staples shape how we navigate our daily tasks. This week we will study the defining event of Christianity for two thousand years. Jesus’ defeat of the power of sin and death is truly a game-changer for our lives—now and forever. Join the group discussion as we examine 1 Corinthians 15:20-28, 54-58!

How have you seen someone sacrifice for another in these weeks dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak? Likely, you’ve seen one example after another. In times of crises, we do what’s needed for those we love. Jesus is our perfect example of this kind of sacrificial love. When   we seek to love others the way Jesus does, our relationships   are transformed. Join our discussion this week as we  study John 15:9-14!

For many, these past few weeks of social distancing have provided extra time at home. Many are putting that time to good use by trying their hand at something new. Have you learned any new skills? Taken up a new hobby? Most times, the simplest way to learn a new skill is to watch someone else complete it. As the old adage goes: Some things are more caught than taught. And Barnabas is someone worth watching. By his example, he showed us three ways we can encourage others. Join our discussion this week as we dig into Acts 9 and 11!

Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020
 

With the world responding to the COVID-19 health crises, the events of this past month have been anything but “business as usual.” The daily news brings more reports of how our country, and other countries, is responding to a pandemic. However, for Christians, this presents a unique opportunity to demonstrate our faith. As Christians, we anchor our hope securely in Christ.

This week is Easter, which makes it an opportune time to invite someone who isn’t a Christian to be a part of this Bible study. Invite someone today and let this person know how they can participate, even if it’s not face-to-face. This week we will dive into 1 Corinthians 15:1-8! We will study the apostle Paul’s claims about encountering Jesus after His resurrection.

With the ongoing effects of the coronavirus, we are all learning how to live set apart. But Christians were designed to live set apart from life in a broken world. We are set aside to become something greater. Let’s consider how we can help one another live that way this week!
