Our neighbors are thirsting for good news. What if we invited them to a deeper encounter with Jesus?

Below you will find the "Encounter Series," a group 6-week small group studies for Lent that will help you witness to the transforming power of the Gospel.

Your small group could include friends, neighbors, co-workers, or even your children and their friends.
