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.

Simply Blessed

The very first thing God did after he made Adam and Eve was to bless them. It the nature of God to bless us. Every blessing we have comes from Him. Let’s acknowledge the source of our blessings, share our blessings and even double them!
