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.


Every miracle was a sign - proving who Jesus is and revealing who we are. Most of the miracles did not lead to a salvation faith. Most of the miracles were temporary fixes. However each miracle proved WHO Jesus is and reveals who we are.
