Small Group Guides

Gather and Grow

The Bible mentions hundreds of men and women whose stories and voices need to be heard. What can we learn from these less recognizable people? How can they help us to see our faith and life from a different angle? These are the questions we will explore each week in our Summer series, Flawed Masterpiece.

About the Content

Each week we'll encourage you to meet as a group to dive deeper into God's word and deeper into relationships.  This study will use the weekend messages as its launching point, with a guide and video being released each week. We'll take our time together to dive deeper into Chap's sermon, but each video will also stand by itself, so if you haven't seen the sermon for that week, don't worry about it! Our follow-along guide is designed to lead you and your group further into relationships with God and with each other, and each guide will have a scripture passage, a brief explanation, and some discussion questions.  If you're not in a small group and would like more information about joining one, we'd love to get you plugged in. We're excited to have you on the journey with us!
