Going Through The Process
The aim of this uGroup is to help members understand that certain things in our lives have different processes.
The ice breaker should be engaging. Get the members off their chairs.
The uGroup leader must develop his own revelation and substance around the word this will guide him/her with some thought points:
Start the message by asking a similar question to these:
- “How do you change a flat tyre?” – “What is the process to make lasagne?” (Choose something that will fit in with the group.)
Ask them if they would you agree that there is a specific process to be followed? – You cannot first take off the wheel before loosening the bolts. You cannot bake the lasagne if the oven has not been preheated
Read Gen 37:1-11
- Why would you think that process is important?
- Would you let the person sitting next to you do an operation on you? Why not?
Process develops character
Process brings faith
Process helps to grow
We are looking for immediate results. (McDonalds mentality)
Motivate the members to apply this question to their own lives.
Talk about it in the uGroup:
- Why don’t we want to go through the process?
Use an example of your own life, where you had to go through a process and what you experienced in this.
To be a believer does not make us immune to the process.
Trials are part of the process
Trials have a divine purpose
Take some time to find scriptures that reveals that to follow the process is important. If members aren’t open to talking about their issues, use examples and tell them to help you find scriptures
Use songs where faith and thankfulness are relevant.
Pray for members that feel that they do not necessarily understand the process.
