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: Knowing Jesus

The book of Colossians is the richest New Testament book that describes the supremacy of Jesus Christ. Once Paul lays the foundation, the book concludes with how followers are to live their life upon this foundation.

Last Week:
Greet every person you see this week with a name tag by name. Thank them for the work they are doing. Let us know their reaction when we come back together.

Two Weeks Ago:
Write your parents a thank you note. If they are gone, write an encouraging note to another parent.

Key Verse:

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son…” John 3:16
