Hope lives, and that hope is personified in Jesus Christ. We can offer that hope to our world but we are also to help relieve the pain and suffering so prevalent in our world. So take your small group go on a journey with us. A journey into the heart of Jesus. A journey that transforms hearts. A journey in which the words of God are proclaimed and the works of God are done. A journey of restoration.
Hope Lives, a five week series, is more than a group Bible study and devotional experience because it provides opportunities for your small group to take this heart-changing information and apply it. The Small Group Kit includes the Hope Lives book and the Hope Lives Small Group DVD. Each small group session on the DVD correlates with one week's readings in Hope Lives.
Each session includes interviews with experts on the issue of poverty or true stories from everyday people who are affected by poverty. These clips are designed to get you and your small group thinking about poverty. Then talk about each clip, answer thought-provoking questions, and interact with one another through focused activities.
You will apply what you learn though prayer, commitments, and relationships. Use this series to encourage your small group to develop a Jesus-centered, compassionate response to poverty.
