Deacons Anyone?

April 11, 2021 Speaker: Scott Stengele Series: Faithful Witnesses: A Study in the Book of Acts

Topic: Church Government, Service, Humility Scripture: Acts 6:1–6:7

Community Group Questions:

Engage Yourself:

How have you idealized the early church based on the statements in the early part of Acts telling us how the church was "in one accord"? 

What else in the book of Acts would help you to remember that the early church was not perfect and was made up of sinful human beings? What else in the New Testament would help you remember the same thing? 

Engage the Text:

Why would many consider Acts 6 to be the establishment of deacons even though the word does not seem to appear on the surface of the text? 

What Old Testament narrative seems to parallel Acts 6? 

Engage Your Neighbor: 

What are ways that you can serve Redeemer Fellowship with your talents and time? 

If asked, would others say they view you as a servant?
