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.


Faith. It's this essential thing that we need to have in order to survive day to day living. We place faith in lots of things, some good, some bad. But the faith that matters most, and honestly the one we wrestle with most often, is our faith in God. In this seven week series we will do a character study of some real life characters in the Bible. Their faith in God will give us confidence to increase our faith in Him.

Last Week:
Memorize Hebrews 11:1
Where is God exercising your faith muscles? Where can you lean into your faith in God? Next time we meet share where/what God is doing in your life.

Two Weeks Ago:
Memorize Exodus 14:14
Where do you need to exchange God's security for your own insecurity?

Key Verse: 
“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” Jeremiah 33:3
