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.

Faith In Action

Authentic Christianity is a faith that is mirrored in action and actions that are mirrored in Christ. The book of James is one of the most practical books in the Bible that is so relevant today. It is challenges our faith to be lived out!
