The following is a holistic Life Team meeting process based on the Growth Cycle using an oral storytelling method. You might want to craft your own story set or use our most recent set, “Not with Pen and Ink,” or our previous set, “Meeting Messiah.”
Review the details of last week’s story. Work together to completely reconstruct it.
Tell and hear the new story for the week. Use the Story Map to develop your story.
Call on a volunteer to retell the story with help from the group.
Process the story with the following discovery questions:
- What does this story say about people?
- What does it say about God?
- What does it say about you personally?
How did you obey the message over the past week?
What will you do in response to the message this week?
Be sure to pray about the answers to these questions during the prayer time at the end.
Ask, “Who do you know that needs to hear this story?” Write down the names to pray over.
Close in prayer together over obedience commitments and over the list of those who need to hear the story.
