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.

Dream House – Blueprints to a healthy and happy home

This series will take us on a room-to-room tour, beginning in the kitchen and ending in the garage. Each room represents either a life stage or a set of principles for a healthy and happy home.

Last Week:
What is your calling from God? How can you focus on it instead of your circumstances this week?
Read Isaiah 40:28-31 every day this week.

Two Weeks Ago:
Have bad things in your past caused you to be distant from God? Talk to Him about it this week.
Read Psalm 46:1-3 every day this week.

Key Verse:

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
