Communion

Life Group Leader Guide

This Leader Guide will help you lead the conversation with your Life Group when discussing this week’s sermon.

Communion

Key Things You Heard

  • Look back at what Jesus did for you.
  • Look forward to when we will be united with Jesus.
  • Look In to examine yourself.
  • Look out to who Jesus died for.

(NOTE: Be prepared to serve communion to your Life Group at the end of the discussion. You can use grape juice and bread or crackers.

NOTE: Be prepared to watch a Youtube video about the Passover. )

Pray

Heavenly Father, Communion is not only one of the great sacraments of the church; it is always a great blessing to each of us. It is a time of looking back, looking forward, and looking in. It is a time when we remember the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins and when we remember that we have to tell others about Jesus.  Help us see you clearly in all things but especially when we take the bread and the juice.

Tweetable Moments

“Communion is a time where we give thanks.”

Questions for Conversation

Icebreaker: Besides the last one, what mealtime story sticks out in your mind?

  • To understand communion you need to understand Passover. Take a few minutes and read about the first Passover. (Exodus 12:1-30)
  • Watch Discovering the Jewish Jesus, The Passover Meal on Youtube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXIYdTLukic Rabbi Kirk Schneider is a Messianic Jewish Rabbi and he explains the connection between the Passover and Jesus sacrifice. You will also get to see a Passover meal served.
  • At the conclusion of the video, serve communion to your Life Group participants.

Now Go Do It

Challenge: Take what you learned in Life Group and in this week’s sermon and hold a time of communion for your family.
