Leader Guide: Fall Week 10


For the week of November 25, 2018
This guide is designed to give helpful hints in preparing & leading your group in discussion.

Because this is the last meeting of the Fall Quarter, the Life Group Study Guide is shorter than normal. As usual, your final meeting will include a look back on how God has worked this past quarter and doing communion as a group. You will also take some time to fill out an online Feedback Form about your group experience and your plans for the fall. The form will be emailed to you on Monday, November 26. The Winter Life Group Quarter will begin the week of January 13, 2019. Have a great few weeks off celebrating the birth of our Lord! Merry Christmas!

NOTE ABOUT THIS WEEK’S STUDY: This week’s Study Questions celebrate how God has worked this past quarter and the sacrifice Jesus made for us through taking communion. Most of your time should be spent on “My Story #2” and “Communion” sections. The questions this week also create a good transition into communion. If you have time, feel free to use these questions, but don’t feel obligated. You can make that transition after the “My Story” section or after either of the questions in the “Digging Deeper” section. Make sure you have supplies for communion.

Optional Way to Do Communion: There is also an Advent Sharing Guide at the end of this Leaders Guide that gives another meaningful way to share how God has worked in their lives with a Christmas theme.

You may have noticed Christmas has arrived at North Coast Church! Stop by the Christmas Outreach Tree on the Vista, Carlsbad, Fallbrook, San Marcos/Escondido and Ramona Campuses to choose an ornament.

We have needs from all of our Community Service Partners and we’d like to bless them in a big way this year!

  • Presents listed on the ornaments include toys, sports equipment, diapers and baby blankets, along with items for parents in need and local homeless shelters.
  • Bring the unwrapped gift back by the date stated on the ornament.

Be a part of this fun day and help make an amazing Christmas for many North County Families!

  • Volunteers are still needed for our special sorting and distribution day. Monday, December 10, we’ll take all the donated gifts and sort them for our organizations to pick up.
