  • Are there times when you don’t feel confident? If so, when? 
  • What keeps you from feeling confident? 
  • When was a time where you felt afraid to share God’s love? 
  • How can you share God’s love? (Be sure to encourage kids to think of outside-the-box ways they can share God’s love. Remind them that this does not always have to be big or awkward or even risky. Sometimes the simplest ways speak the loudest!) 
  • How does the way you live affect the way others see Jesus? 

Week 2: May 14

Bible Story: Level Up (The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost) • Acts 2:1-41

  • How do you know when the Holy Spirit is guiding you?

Askthe following questionsand lead the group to discuss: 

  • Can you think of a time when God found a way to answer a question you had? 
  • Who do you talk to when you have questions? 
  • Is it okay to question things we have always been taught? 
  • What questions do you have?  (Do not be intimidated by this last question! As their Small Group Leader, you have a unique opportunity to give kids a safe place to ask questions that perhaps they would not feel comfortable asking a parent. Be aware of the potential open door for tricky discussion and be mindful of questions that should be answered with a temporary response of, “Let’s figure out a time to discuss that individually.” Also, remember this: you are not expected to have ALL the answers! Some things you might not know, and some questions actually don’t have definitive answers. It’s okay to tell kids exactly that.)
