Description - Groups by John Ortberg
Community is God's idea. Only in community can we know and be known, love and be loved, celebrate others and be celebrated by them. And only through close, transparent relationships can we be transformed as individuals.
Groups invites you to enjoy the rewards--and embrace the risks--of community. Step by step, this study will challenge and encourage you to explore the amazing potential for growth found in authentic relationships. You'll study the true nature of friendship. The power of paying attention. The path to intimacy. The encouragement of being for one another. You'll learn what it means to live out these and other simple but vital truths for being all you are, giving all you've got, and receiving all you need as a member of God's dynamic community, the church.
Leader's guide included!
