Catch up on how things have been since the last time your Impact Group met. Allow anyone new to introduce themselves. Then ask group members:
Ask for a volunteer to read Matthew 7:24-27 to the group, praying a short prayer that – however much they’ve come to know Jesus, they’d get to know him better as a result of your time together.
If you’re not gathered in person, the leader should project the video for the group through sharing their screen. If you’re using Zoom, make sure you have optimized your screen share for video.
Suggested questions to help your discussion.:

You might also like to share any requests for personal prayer at this point. Let any who doesn’t want to pray out loud stay quiet, but encourage spoken prayer from others.

You may have people in your Impact Group who are less familiar with Jesus and his teaching. They may have never give much thought to the foundation on which they’re building.
Confirm the time that you’ll meet next week, and ask someone to close your time together in prayer.
