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:
What has God given you to manage for Him and His Kingdom? Read Matthew 25:14-29 each day this week and ask God to reveal to you the answer to that question.

What is God calling you to do but you are focussed on the burden of doing it?
Read Luke 5:5-11 each day this week and talk to God about it.
