Week 4: Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork

Text: Ecclesiastes 4:9–12
Topic(s): Community, Teamwork, Encouragement
Big Idea of the Message: Another athletic analogy that enables us to live the Christian life and to advance God’s kingdom on the earth is teamwork.
Application Point: God’s design for our lives is to journey with other believers as a team so that our labor for God’s kingdom will be more effective and so we can be there for one another during difficulties and opposition.

Discussion Questions:
  1. What is one thing that stood out to you from this week’s message?
  2. What would it truly look like for believers to journey together with one another? What are some practical ways your group can walk in deeper relationships with one another?
  3. How can we work together better to extend God’s kingdom on the earth? Brainstorm some ideas and then choose one to put into action.
  4. When other “team members” fall down, how can we be there for them? If you are the one who falls down to anxiety, depression, pain, financial hardships, sin, sickness, tragedy, weariness, emotional pain, etc., how would you like to have fellow Christians there for you?
  5. How can we as team members help each other in our spiritual battles?
  6. How can we pray for you?
