Discuss the following questions with your Small Group:

  1. Studies show that 85 percent of people are clear about the meaning and purpose of their life (64 percent strongly agree and 21 percent somewhat agree)? Do these numbers surprise you?  Why or why not?
  2. Have you ever thought, ““If I could just discover the right thing, a better job, financial blessing, the right person to love me, the right kids with the right accolades, then I’d feel satisfied.” In what things have you sought satisfaction? Did they satisfy?
  3. Can you share both a time when life seemed like a random series of events and a time when it seemed like there was an intentional plan unfolding?  Share.
  4. In what ways does your view of eternity affect your sense of meaning and purpose?  Share.
  5. If you believe we all have a purpose, what role does God play in that for you?
  6. Each of us has a unique story to “play” in the world, share your role?

Current Series

He Gets Us

Though Jesus walked the earth 2,000 years ago, He still knows about the problems you face today. Not only does Jesus know what plagues us as a culture, He gets us. Jesus can relate. He was tempted, too. He was disrespected, too. He was doubted, too. He mourned, too. He suffered, too.

Faith Church is joining other churches in the Chicagoland area for the series, He Gets Us. We’ll explore that Jesus knows about our insecurity, exhaustion, anxiety, guilt, loneliness and grief. Join us for this new series as we find assurance in knowing we aren’t alone in this world. We have a Savior who gets us and cares about what we are feeling.
