Home Night Graphic for Baptisms


Tonight we celebrated what God has done through students sharing their stories and getting baptized. The two are almost always coupled together because baptism is an outward expression of an inward work of Jesus in our lives. When Jesus enters the picture, our lives are never the same and our stories are changed forever. And the amazing thing about people's stories? You can't argue with a story! Baptism for us is about real stories involving real people who have experienced real life change because of a real Savior. So we thought it would be a great time for your group to focus on stories and how Jesus has impacted the lives of individuals in your group over the past semester.



“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8



  1. What stories did you resonate with tonight?
  2. Why do you think it’s important to share stories?
  3. Acts 1:8 tells us that Jesus’ last words were to be his witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth — which were significant locations in proximity to his disciples. What are some significant locations in proximity to you in which God is calling you to witness?
  4. As you look back at this past semester, how have you grown? Where have you seen Jesus changing your life?
  5. Has there been a circumstance that has challenged you over the last few months? How has God been faithful through it?


Discuss your plans as a group for next school year.

If you plan to remain connected over the summer, talk about how you can help each other continue to grow in your faith and share your faith over the summer.
