Did you leave after hearing Sunday’s message and think, “Well, now what?” Each Sunday, we will provide a discussion guide for our church body designed to create a conversation about what we’re learning. We encourage you to prayerfully gather with your family, friends and community group and dive into how to apply Sunday’s teaching from God’s Word to your life.

- JP gave three application points: 1) be aware of the situation, 2) consider how you might personally connect and give or serve, and 3) go. As a group spend 10-15 minutes in prayer. Ask God to show you how you should respond then discuss what next steps you think God would have you take.
