Weekly Discussion Guide


Giving It Away

by Pastor Matt Manning on January 23, 2022


MY STORY | Vulnerability
What is the greatest (or worst) gift you ever gave to someone else?
Why do you think it left such a lasting memory for you? (7-10 min)

DIGGING DEEPER | Practical Biblical Application
How do you react to this statement: The amount and ways you give away your money and time most clearly reflects the depth of your trust in God. Discuss the truth (or error) of this statement.  

Read 2 Corinthians 9:6-15.
Share your general first-read observations.

Discuss the connection with our “sowing” AND God’s response.

For those with experience in investing money, what parallels and contrasts can you make with ROI (Return On Investment), and the concept here?

GROWING TOGETHER | Spiritual Friendship
Has your group ever tangibly supported each other in the past? Have a discussion about how you can make your needs known to each other and actively support each other through the ups and downs of life in the future.

LIVING IN 4D | Missional Living
Is there someone in your workplace, neighborhood, or family with a tangible need that God might be asking you to “join Him” in helping them? How can you do so in a way that God is in the center?  

What is the one important thing you will take away from this weekend’s message or our community group discussion? Is there any challenge, difficulty or praise that you would like to share with the group for prayer?
