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
