HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THIS SERIES

Foundations Series is designed to be used with groups ranging in size from 2-10 people. Each episode in the series has a discussion guide that group leaders should use to maximize the learning experience.

Each discussion guide starts with the BEFORE YOU BEGIN section. This highlights the main points you want your people to understand and live from. Discussion leaders should get familiar with these before meeting with their group.

The next section of each discussion guide is called EXPLORING THE STORY and gives guidance for how leaders should run the group meeting by following the three-thirds approach:

◄  Look Back – welcome, opening prayer, and introduction
▲  Look Up – explore this week’s episode
►  Look Ahead – clarify implications and application

Make sure you follow the three-thirds process. It is important because it helps people:

  • Connect with each other
  • Connect with the message of the Bible
  • Connect the truth of the Bible to the way they think and live
