For those of you part of the Solano Community Church Home Group ministry, we’re about to embark on a journey that will be exciting, at times challenging, and, Lord willing, very fruitful. We’re calling it Project Feed and the goal is provide all of us the opportunity both to grow in Christ and to learn more about how to grow in Christ. Our method will be to feed on God’s word together.
The process starts with the Spiritual Growth Inventory, which will be taken during the Home Group meeting. The Growth Inventory helps you determine your progress with respect to discipleship. It doesn’t measure you against anyone else, only yourself, giving you some input as to where you are stronger and weaker. You score it, you keep it, you share it only with the people you want to share it with. Next, each person in the Home Group will choose one discipleship area (preferably one in which you scored to the lower end) to research and study up on. (At the end of this blog, you’ll find a list of study tools.) Over the next several weeks of meeting together, the various members of the group will have opportunity to share with one another what God is teaching them through their particular study. It will be a living, breathing representation of Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom…” We’ll grow, we’ll get to know one another and we’ll celebrate God’s goodness over the whole process.We understand that at times this will be a stretching experience. But we also believe it is hard to promote serious spiritual growth without risking something. And we know we have a God who will always meet us with our needs. So, let’s take a risk together and see what God will do.Note: If you are not in a Home Group, now is a great time to join one. Exact start date for Project Feed will depend on individual Home Group.Resources for Researching Individual TopicsOpiso Resources (includes topic summary, suggested Scriptures, exercises and book recommendations)Scripture search tool (select “keyword” or “topic,” type in word(s) associated with topic and hit “search”)
