Spirit-Led • Alpine Chapel
The Holy Spirit isn’t a tool or a technique that we leverage for our advantage. The Holy Spirit is a person that leads us to join God’s mission of reconciliation. When we’re led by him, we develop a deep hatred for sin, both the bad things we do and the good things we leave undone. When a community is led by the Holy Spirit, it becomes a place where we can confess those sins to one another and experience God’s forgiveness and healing through the love of others.
Join Alpine Chapel for Part Five of our series on Community DNA and listen as Lead Pastor Dave Mudd talks about the power of a Spirit-led community to help people experience the wholeness and healing that Jesus makes possible.

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:
  • Growing up, were you more of a rule-follower or a rule-breaker?
  • Who would you say is the most “spirit-led” person in your life? What makes you say that?
  • When was a time in your life that you clearly sensed the Holy Spirit leading you to do something? How did you respond?
  • Is there anything you would like to group to hear and pray for so that you can experience God’s healing in your life?
  • Is there anything that stood out to you from the message?

RESOURCES FOR USING ZOOM VIDEO CONFERENCING
