Post-Weekend Convo Starters

Welcome to the Chaser–a few questions after the weekend service to start conversations. If this is your first time in a group, or your group has new members, take a few minutes and introduce yourself. Two truths and a lie is always a good place to start.

  1. You’ve probably never lost an arm wrestling match in front of 1,200 people, but we’ve all had moments where our strength failed us. Share a time when you felt physically weak. (Bonus points for embarrassing stories.)

    Some follow up questions: Have you ever been the hero when someone’s strength fails? Have you ever WON an armwrestling match in front of 1,200 people?

  2. Read Romans 5:6-8 out loud in your group. What jumps out at you in this passage?

    Some follow up questions: How can weakness be more than a physical condition? Why would the author talk about weakness as a benefit?

  3. “There may be things in your life you don’t like. And God may use them to benefit the purpose he has for your life.” We heard this idea in service. What do you think of it

    Some follow up questions: How have struggles in your life changed you? Or maybe changed those around you? What would it look like for God to be present in those challenges?

  4. Service ended this weekend with people saying “I belong to Jesus” through the public act of baptism. What do you believe about baptism?

    Some follow up questions: Have you been baptized, or ever thought about it? Why did you make the decision? This passage about baptism may offer another perspective in your conversation. Read it out loud and discuss.


This week’s challenge is all about you spending time with God and working your spiritual muscles. If you haven’t yet, download the Crossroads App. Then do the daily challenge each morning.

Use these Groups basics as you start your group:

  1. Be great listeners. Pay attention when someone else is talking instead of thinking of what you’ll say next.
  2. Give examples, not advice. We’ve all gotten that not-so-helpful advice we wish someone would have just kept to themself. Don’t be that person. Instead of advice, try sharing an example from your life that relates to what someone else is talking about. Empower them to decide what’s best for them. And keep it in the group — what’s said in the group stays in the group.
  3. Be there. Commit to watching the weekend and participating in the Chaser conversation for the entire series. Be real in your group. No one has it all together (even if it looks like they do) and you’ll connect better with the people in your group if everyone brings their authentic self every week.
