Ice Breaker (optional – choose one below)

  • This weekend we were able to host Pastor Andy Thompson from World Overcomer’s Church. When was the last time you were a guest somewhere? What were the circumstances? Would you rather be a host or a guest?
  • In your opinion, who is the “classic” married couple? Why?

Main Idea

Marriage is as old as the human race, and how a community views marriage will have an effect on nearly every other type of relationship. Marriages are a great way for our Church to paint a picture of Jesus Christ to those around us, so let’s be careful to paint a good portrait!


What stood out to you from this weekend’s message?


How did the songs we sang this weekend relate to the message we heard? (Look no Further, One Things Remains, & This I Believe)


Marriage is an emotional subject to discuss, why do you think that is? How is marriage different from other relationships?

Apply the Message, Own the Mission

What is one thing from Pastor Andy’s message that challenged your concept of marriage?


What one thing do you need to do to encourage your own marriage to be more Christ-like or to encourage the marriages God has placed around you?


As a group, spend a few minutes praying for marriages in our community in general as well as for specific marriages in our community. (at least two marriages per group member)
