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.

Do you believe that God is “for you”? Where do you need to live that out this week?

Two Weeks Ago:
Is there a situation in your life where you are struggle to see the good or to trust God? Talk to Him. What would it look like if your surrendered your “why” to Him?
