Story & Stretch

The Story:  God Covenants with the World - Genesis 10-12:7  
Main Point:  God adapts.

Story & Song - Kickoff - Week 2


I Wonder Statement:  I wonder if you need to adapt, or change, how you're doing something right now in order to succeed...

Discussion Questions: 

  • What does it mean to adapt?
  • How have you adapted in the past?  What did you change in your life or help someone else change to make something better?
  • What ideas do you have to adapt something right now in your life?  What do you hope that change will improve?

Prayer:  Dear God, thank you for setting an example for us to adapt when something is not working.  Help me change my approach when I need to in order to succeed.

Discussion Questions:
