Below is a brief review of our meeting on Sunday, followed by a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week.

Matthew read Colossians 1:15-20 to begin our time together.

We sang His Name is Jesus (All Hail the Power)Lord I Need You, and Grace Alone.

We gave our offerings while singing He Will Hold Me Fast.

Gene introduced Tammy Bishop who shared about her work in Bolivia with SutiSana–a ministry that offers dignified employment for survivors of prostitution. She also invited all to attend a Fashion Show and Awareness Event on May 22nd at 7pm at KingsWay.

After Tammy spoke, Gene introduced Andy Baker, one of the co-founders of SuitiSana, and he shared a mission update about God’s work in Bolivia and our role as a church in missions. He based his message off of Acts 1:6-11. To listen again, visit our Audio Resources page.

After the message, the pastors laid hands on and prayed for Andy. Gene also prayed for the people of Nepal in light of the devastating earthquake.

Matthew read Isaiah 42:1-9 and we sang Great Are You Lord.

Chris closed the meeting with a benediction.


Discussion Questions:

1. In what sphere are you currently most engaged in ministry? In what ways have you sensed God’s leading to leave your comfort zone in order to better serve Him?

2. What is the difference between a singular-personal view of missions (“Who am I and where am going?”) and a plural-community view of missions (“Who are we and where are we going?”)? Which one is most effective in the context of a church body?

3. Andy said that we are all called to involvement in missions in one of two ways: to go or to give. What is the difference between these these two callings? Which area of involvement are you called to?

4. What is a skill, big or small, that you have excelled at? Andy used the example of David’s slingshot skills. How can you, like David, use this unique skill to further God’s kingdom?

Matthew Williams grew up attending KingsWay and joined the pastoral staff in 2009. God has blessed him and his wife, Aliza, with three rambunctious boys, Ethan, Micah, and Tyler. Matthew did his undergraduate work at the University of Richmond in chemistry and political science, spent a year at the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College, and is nearly finished with his Masters of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
