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.

Secure Me

Everyone struggles with insecurity. As soon as you read that something popped into your head. I believe that insecurity is part of the original sin of mankind. We had security in God, then we lost it and we’ve been trying to get it back ever since. It’s about all of us dealing with our insecurity and how we can learn to live securely in God when we understand where that security truly comes from and how it can change our lives.
