UN*RELIGIOUS – FOLLOWER > (IS GREATER THAN) FAN
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.
CURRENT SERIES: UN*RELIGIOUS – undoing religion in your life
Religion has always been man’s attempt to get to God. Jesus came so that, through him, we would have a personal relationship with God. Religion has some good virtues. However, religion can give a false sense of security for what we do for God instead of who we are because of what Christ has done for us.
