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.


Good news travels fast. In the book of Acts, Jesus launched His church and set a fire of hope that has continued to burn for centuries. Through the church, the gospel is the hope of the world and is unstoppable. God will continue to use His people to build His church until Jesus returns. His Church will never stop because He will never stop.
