Missing Peace – Finding My Missing Peace (week 1)

Gracepointkitsap   -  

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.


Where in the world is peace found these days? We do not see peace in our country, homes, relationships, and the world! This missing peace can only be found in Jesus Christ.

Last Week: What can you do this week to be appreciative of those around you?

Two Weeks Ago:  Are there things about you that you think God screwed up? How can you be more appreciative of the way God made you?
