Is this time of disease, distance and divisiveness puzzling for you? Jesus has a solution you can’t find anywhere else. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.

We are encouraging every Growth Group and MicroGroup to use the MicroGroup Format as the Study Guide to facilitate the conversation. It is very easy to use and encourages conversation to go deeper.
MicroGroup Format of the Meeting (one hour):
Begin with Prayer
Read the Purpose Statement: Our purpose is to Love, Grow, and Share Like Jesus. We commit to:
Read chapters of Scripture each week prior to our gathering;
Once our group of two or three reaches four people, we will multiply and form two groups so others may love, grow and share like Jesus.
Check In with Each Other: Have each person share their responses to following questions:
Love God: Where did you see God working this week?
Grow in Grace: What challenges did you face this week? How did you respond?
Share with Others: How did you share Jesus’ love and truth with others this week?
Apply God’s Word: What did the Holy Spirit reveal through your Bible reading this week?
Finish with Prayer for one another and for those who are not followers of Jesus:
Lord, please draw ___ to yourself. (John 6:44)
Lord, please give me the opportunity, the courage and the right words to share the truth with____. (I Peter 3:15)
Decide what chapters of the Bible you all will read the next seven days.
