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.

Last Week:
Who has God placed in your life that is different than you? Pray for that person and look for opportunities to build a relationship.

Two Weeks Ago:
Are there people in your path whom you dismiss out of preference? Spend some time engaging with them this week.

Key Verse:

To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. 23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.” 1 Corinthians 9:22–23
