Life Group Leader Guide


The Way of Hope is an invitation to put our current sermon series into practice. For eight weeks, John Ortberg will point us to the truth that Hope Has a Name and that name is Jesus. To be better hope-ers and hope-bringers we can’t just learn about hope, we need to practice hope. 

We want to do this together as a church family. Here’s how it will work: 

1. Weekly Spiritual Practice
Each Monday we will post a new practice for you to lean into that week. If you were a part of The Way series you are familiar with these practices which include: 

  • Surrender
  • Confession
  • Everyday Trials
  • Accountability
  • Prayer
  • Serving

The weekly practice will include daily prompts to put the practice into action. 

2. Do it Together
During this time of isolation we need connection more than ever. You can find an online Life Group here.

1. Email the leader
2. Try out the group and if it’s not a fit, try another group until you find your people
3. If you’re having trouble finding a group or the leader doesn’t respond, let us know here.

3. Ask for Prayer
Let people know you are taking some steps to grow in following Jesus and you need their prayer. We want to pray for you too. Send your prayer requests here.
