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: Unleashed

We are all hardwired to worship. The problem is that we worship other things than a holy, righteous God.  As believers, we are commanded to give praise to God. Often times our background, experience, personality, and preferences have restrained our expression of worship. This series will encourage us to unashamedly UNLEASH our praise to a worthy God!

Last Week:
Take a step towards truly worshiping God and a step away from what others around you are thinking about you…

Two Weeks Ago:
The next time you worship corporately, thank God for the sacrifice He made for you. Let that be your guide, not the people around you, as you worship Him.

Key Verse: 
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37, ESV)
