  • Question 03
    Why should people “stay” in church?
  • Question 04
    “What” is God?
  • Question 05
    Is the church whole when I am not there? Why or why not?
  • Question 06
    Is the church something we “attend” or something we “are”? Why do you believe this?
  • Question 07
    How does this lesson change the way you will interact within the church?
  • Exercise 01
    Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 (in Digging Deeper) and discuss with your Mathetis group the idea of “attendance” versus “presence” by replacing the word “church” with “family” and “marriage.” Do I attend my family or am I a part of my family? Do I attend my marriage or am I married?
  • Exercise 02
    Share with your Mathetis group whether you have felt like you were attending church in the past or whether you were being the church. What made the difference for you?
