Have you ever been in a life-or-death situation?  What happened?

If someone drowned, how would you respond? (panic, helpful)


When it comes to an emergency there are a few steps that happen to be helpful:

Notice the event – Interpret the event as an emergency – Assume Responsibility – Know how to help – Help


Notice the Event

  • When it comes to people not knowing God, why is it so easy for us to not notice?

Interpret the event as an emergency

  • Even when we know that someone doesn’t know God, we don’t really see it as urgent, Why do you think that is?
  • Why should we see it as a big deal when someone doesn’t know God?

Assume Responsibility
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. – 2 Corinthians 5:20

  • Why is it important to know that we are the ones God uses to let people know about Christ?
  • Who should we assume responsibility for?
  • Why would we not take action even when we know someone needs God?
  • Have you ever felt pressure to keep your faith to yourself?

Know how to help

  • Discuss as a group good ways to explain the following questions to someone that doesn’t know God.
  • Why do I need to know God?
  • How are you saved?
  • How is my life going to be different after I am saved?

Urgency at Amplify

As a group, our goal is to create a place where the unconnected get connected

  • What does it mean to be unconnected?
  • Why is it important to see someone being “unconnected” as an urgent problem?
  • Who should assume responsibility for unconnected people?
  • How can we help someone that is unconnected become connected?
