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.


In this two week series Pastor Mike will explore the why's and how's of worship

Last Week:
What is your favorite "worship" song? This week, look up the lyrics and print them out. Read them out loud everyday as a reminder that worship is a choice. Choose to worship God.

Two Weeks Ago:
