Go… Make Disciples

LOOK BACK (1/3 of your time)


Share a meal, or refreshment. Go around the group and introduce yourselves and talk through a “Get to know you” question.


  1. How did you obey?
  2. Who did you train?
  3. Did You share your story, or God's story with anyone?

LOOK UP (1/3 of your time)

Read Acts 2:36-47 to cast vision for being church together together.

Read the Command: In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus says…

Tell the Story: The Samaritan Woman from John 4:4-42

Retell the story together.

Read the story aloud.


Pray then use the Sword Bible Study Method to discuss the story and reveal its meaning for our lives.


Practice retelling the story or the 3-Circles.

OBEY - TRAIN - SHARE (never skip)

Have everyone in the group pray for the spirit to show them how to answer these questions, then make commitments, write the commitments down and share commitments with the group each week.

  1. How will you obey this passage?
  2. With who will you share your story or God's story with?


Pray and ask God to prepare the hearts of the people who will be hearing about Jesus this week. Ask him to give you the strength to be obedient to your commitments.
