    The following are always good questions to ask as you move deeper into any Bible Study. 

    1. What stands out in this passage? Anything you noticed for the first time or came to understand in a new way?
    2. What questions do you have? Anything confusing or troubling?
    3. What does this passage say about God's character or his love and promise for us?
    4. How can this passage be applied to my relationship with God? My life? My relationship with others?
  • Spiritual Vitality

    Spiritual Vitality is a characteristic of possessing a living faith; it's how we thrive amidst life's ups and downs. The goal of Spiritual Vitality is to help you become a vital and whole human being created in the image of God. In addition to Spiritual Direction and Vitality practices, Vitality Groups (GriefShare, DivorceCare, The Ultimate Journey) seek to help you heal spiritually and bring you closer to God.
