Welcome to a New LifeGroup Session!

Before we jump into our study, let’s take a moment to remember that there are THREE things we want to see happen every time our LifeGroups gather:

– Movement towards Each Other
– Movement towards God
– Movement towards our Community

Our questions follow this same format. All of the questions are designed towards movement. We hope you enjoy your time together in your LifeGroup.
**Remember, our goal is to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. Use the questions that are help and skip the rest.

CURRENT SERIES: Illusions – Falling for a Believable Lie

Satan is the master illusionist. He is always trying to get us to believe something that isn’t true so that we will do something that isn’t smart. He offers us something of temporary value in order for us to give him something of permanent value. This series will pull the mask off of Satan’s lies that many believe.
