What is core to our identity here at CrossWinds? Join us this Sunday at CrossWinds Church in Spencer as we consider our core values, this week looking at our commitment to neighboring and good works.

Sermon Discussion

  1. What comes to mind when you think of “neighbors”? What makes a neighbor a “good neighbor or a “bad neighbor”?
  2. What is one takeaway from the sermon and one question that you had after hearing the sermon?
  3. Based on your experience with CrossWinds, how have you seen this core value lived out? How can we even more effectively live out this core value as a church and individuals?
  4. Read 1 Peter 2:9–10. According to these verses, what is one of the reasons why God saves people?
  5. What are some things that you have been “an evangelist” for? How do those examples reveal what it means to live out 1 Peter 2:9–10?
  6. Read 1 Peter 2:11. What is the significance of being “sojourners and exiles”? How should the church attempt to “blend out” rather than “blend in”?
  7. Read Jeremiah 29:4–7. What would it look for us to be a Jeremiah 29:7 type of church?
  8. Read 1 Peter 2:12. How might God use our good works in the lives of unbelievers?
  9. Read Titus 2:14. What does it mean to be “zealous for good works”? What are you “zealous” for? How can our church become zealous for loving our community?
