3/25 D-Group Questions:
1) What is one thing that you are missing during the quarantine and what is one thing you are enjoying about it?

3/18 – Dream Big, Live Small
Scripture: Matthew 5:14-16 https://www.bible.com/111/mat.5.14-16.niv and Hebrews 10:23-25 https://www.bible.com/111/heb.10.23-25.niv
1) Quick check in – who are you making sure you keep in touch with right now? (Your “closest ripple” or two). What’s one way you or they have been a positive or helpful influence on each other?
2) Why do you think it’s important for followers of Jesus to shine like lights in the darkness? What does light do?
3) What are some practical ways we can shine the light of Jesus right now to people who are … A) our family? B) our closest friends we stay in contact with? C) our neighbors or someone who is in need?
4) Hebrews 10:23-25 calls us to hold unswervingly to our hope in Jesus and encourage each other in love – not quitting on gathering together. How can we as a D-Group stay connected and encourage each other in a moment when we cant physically meet together?
5) Take an honest moment and remember influence works both ways. In these last few days, what are some of the negative or harmful voices that have influenced you? Have you been one of those to others? How does Jesus as the Light shine into that darkness?
6) How can we pray for you and one another?

181 of us shared a marvelous weekend September 20 – 22 at Camp Highland in Ellijay, Ga for Signal Pres’ Trek (middle school) Retreat.
Trek Retreat is a weekend where students are sought with the unconditional love of Jesus. They are fed with the Word of God in Jesus centered teaching and personal practice. They’re given relational space with people to belong to and committed leaders who are passionate for Christ and show them God. And lord willing, it equips students for a life-long faith connected to the body of Christ.
