Are Your Feet Beautiful? • Alpine Chapel

With so much news available today, it’s hard to know what (and who) to trust. It’s hard, too, to be aware of what kind of news we’re sharing with the world. Is it more of the same? Or is it a message of real hope that comes from staying in the good news of Jesus and allowing his character to be our character?

Join Alpine Chapel for a message called “Are Your Feet Beautiful?”, a message from Lead Pastor Dave Mudd that’s all about what kind of news we’re carrying: is it the kind that people overlook or kind that makes people celebrate the feet that bring it?

TEACHING & DISCUSSION (45 MINUTES)

For groups process this weekend’s message from Alpine, spend time watching the message before you meet together. After watching, use the questions below to help get the conversation going:
  • What news sources do you find yourself drawn to these days? How would you describe the tone that the news is setting?
  • Who’s someone in your life that could use some “good news” right now?
  • In the message, Pastor Dave talked about the idea of “being present” with Jesus, our families, our community, and God’s mission. What’s one way you can be more present in each of those areas?

This guide is intended for online community groups who are meeting digitally to care for one another in this season and discuss the weekly messages from Alpine. Looking for a community? CLICK HERE.

PRAYER (30 MINUTES)

To conclude your gathering, spend some time in prayer together. Begin with a few minutes in silence, listening for what God might have to say to you or to your group in this moment, then share what came to mind. After a few minutes of listening and sharing, spend time praying for:
  • Eradication of COVID-19 and healing for those who are sick
  • Followers of Jesus to be a presence of peace and love in their neighborhoods
  • Wisdom for local, state, national, and global leaders
  • Any needs in your group
