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.

The NEW You

At salvation, we are set free from the bondage of our sin. And yet we still fight with imperfections and certain signature sins. Thankfully we are no longer defined by what we’ve done wrong but by what Christ has done right. This series will look at ways we can gain victory and live the new life available to us.

Last Week:
How can you live in the freedom of Christ this week?
Read Romans 8:1-4 each day this week.

Two Weeks Ago:
Memorize Galatians 5:22-23
Take steps this week to have more “fruit” in your life

Key Verse:

For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6
