HORIZON – Looking Up, Out and Beyond Ourselves (Part 5)
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: Horizon – Looking Up, Out and Beyond Ourselves
The horizon is a beautiful picture from our Creator. They are symbolic for hopes, dreams, and a future. To see a horizon, we must look up, out, and beyond ourselves. The COVID season has caused many to look down, around, or within themselves. As believers at GracePoint, we need to refocus our attention. We need to recast our VISION and lift our eyes and see the HORIZON God has before us.

Two Weeks Ago: Who are the people in your community that don’t know Jesus? Begin praying for an opportunity to invite them to GPC.
