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.

Relationship Goals

People often look at happy images of marriages on social media and say, “I want that,” but they don’t really know what “that” is. The real secret to a great marriage goes far deeper than just a hashtag. In this five-part series we’ll define five goals that will enable couples to keep their focus on the right path for their marriage.

Last Week:
If married, where do you want your marriage to be in six months? What will you do to get it there?
If single, where do you want to be as a person in six months? What will you do to get there?

Two Weeks Ago:
If you are married, make it a point to pray every day this week.
If you are single, ask a friend for a prayer request that you can pray for every day this week.
