We are a group of imperfect people pursuing a perfect God. We exist to help each other find and follow Christ. These are some things we want to be true of our group:
We create a safe and honest environment, staying transparent and authentic.
We keep it inside the circle. Confidentiality is necessary for a healthy group.
We look together to the Bible for help and guidance, and keep out our own politics, sales, or agendas.
We do not try to fix each other, preach sermons, or give unsolicited advice. We instead encourage, listen to, and celebrate each other.
We handle conflict between us quickly and honestly by going to the person, owning our part, and practicing forgiveness.
We respect each others’ time by starting and ending when we say we will.
We trust that it is God’s role to change people, not ours.
We believe that in Jesus Christ, there is hope for everyone.
Tell everyone about yourself! Your name, vocation/how you spend your time, family, how long you’ve been at Mission, how you heard about Mission, anything you feel comfortable sharing!
How it Will Work
We’ll meet together weekly and use our workbooks for personal study and prayer between our gatherings (5 days of homework each week). Please come whether or not you've completed the homework! The most important part of our experience is the time we spend together, any time that we spend alone with God in our Bibles and workbooks. With the two working together, we’ll hear His voice in the most personal way. Each time we gather we’ll watch a short and impactful video of Jen & Jodi cuing up our weekly discussions and then discuss the homework we completed that week.
The videos this session will preview the homework that you'll do over the next week. Watch them after your discussion! They are all about 15 minutes long.
The videos are on Vimeo, so you can watch them by connecting your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable, or by using a simple casting device like a Chromecast, Roku Stick, Amazon Fire TV Stick, or Apple TV!

Use the last 15 minutes of group to ask if anyone has any prayer requests and close in prayer.
