1. So which person/group do you think had the best “Jesus Story? Why?

2. Which story resonates with you the most on a personal level? Is there another “Jesus Story” besides the ones listed above that you like?

3. Share a story about a time when you had seen God’s faithfulness, grace, and/or love in your own life?

While many stories in our world are fictional, the Bible shares the truth and wisdom about who God is and what he has done for us. These stories or MORE than just stories, they bring life!


Let’s take some time to reflect on last month’s TEC21 Challenges and share experiences. Share a success, a challenge you experienced or a lesson learned.

What was something you tried?

Was it successful or not?

Will you do something differently next time or were you happy with how it went?
