This Is What We Do – Irrational Generosity (week 3)

Gracepointkitsap   -  

Welcome Back!!!

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: This is What We Do

We embrace THIS. We live THIS out. When THIS happens, everyone benefits. When THIS happens, God’s blessings flow. THIS opens doors and solves problems. THIS inspires others to do THIS too. THIS is who we are. THIS is What We Do!

Last Week: What would it look like for you to live with an abundance mentality this week? Read Mark 6:30-42 this week and talk to God about what you have in abundance. 

Two Weeks Ago: Money is a touchy subject. If you are worried about tithing, talk to God. Read Malachi 3:10; 2 corinthians 9:6-11 this week.
Take a step of faith towards Him and watch what He can do!
