Part 1: Why In The World // March 15

witwinvitecardside1PART 1: Jesus came to show us what God is like.


One of the unique things Christians believe is that God became one of us. For thirty years he lived undercover as a carpenter, surfaced as a miracle worker and rabbi for three years, and allowed himself to die in the most degrading way imaginable. He came as one of us but was treated as less than one of us. Why in the world would God do that?



1. What, if anything, do you do to feel close to God? What is it about that habit, practice, or approach that makes you feel God’s presence?


2. In what ways have you seen people look in the wrong places to discover what God is like? How did it shape the ways they view God?

Session Five: The Myth of Happily Ever After // March 8

febseriessquareRead Matthew 5:21-26


The course of true love never did run smooth. – Shakespeare


Conflict is inevitable. No matter how “in love” a couple is, or even if you and your roommate are “BFF’s”, friction eventually emerges. Far more important to the survival of a marriage or a close friendship is how well we handle disagreements.


  1. Sometimes people fight about the silliest things – like an insignificant detail in a story they are telling, how someone is driving the car, etc. What’s the craziest conflict you have ever heard of and why?
  2. Have you ever encountered a conflict because you were convinced you were right about something and it turned out you weren’t? (Please share with the group).
  3. What causes the biggest conflict in your relationship?
  4. How do you usually handle conflict?
  5. As you were growing up, how did your family typically handle conflict? What habits have you taken with you into your adult life?


For Roommates & Couples:

Sometimes conflicting relationships find common ground only to discover they are standing on quicksand as a result of making incorrect assumptions. Consider how your roommate or partner other was thinking and feeling within the last couple of days. (e.g. you think he was upset when you didn’t show up on time). Once you have that in mind, complete this sentence:


“I think you were . . .”


Now ask your roommate or partner how accurate you are in this assumption and note it on the following scale:


Completely                             Inaccurate                                Right on the Money

1           2           3           4          5           6           7            8           9           10


The point of this exercise is to diffuse your natural inclination to “mind read” by making your assumptions known. You’ll be amazed how handy this can be in the midst of an intense conversation.

Summer Camp Scholarships

2015-camp-themeHelp Send a Student to Camp


This Summer, our Middle and High School students are heading to camp. Every year, this camp helps bring lifechange to so many students as they engage in worship, teaching, games, and building relationships. Unfortunately, many students are unable to attend simply because of the cost. It’s our hope here at LifeBridge that money would never be an issue for a student wanting to attend camp, and you could help make that difference. Please consider sponsoring a student for this year’s 2015 Student Camp. Any amount helps! If you want to sponsor a student in full, the total cost for the trip is $365.


To give toward student sponsorships CLICK HERE and select “Resolve Student Camp Scholarship” in the drop down menu.

New Easter Series

witwinvitecardside1Why In The World?
Christians believe a lot of crazy things—including that God showed up in a human body and lived among humankind. But why? Why would God want to become one of us and live in a world like ours?

A world of anxiety . . .
A world of chaos . . .
A world of heartache . . .


Why would God leave the comfort and recognition of heaven to live in this world? This March & April, you’re invited to explore these perplexing questions at LifeBridge in a 5-part series, Why in the World.

April 5th – Easter Sunday at 9:30 & 11:15

Session Four: The Myth of Sex // March 1

febseriessquareRecommended: For the discussion, divide up into two separate groups: Guys with Guys, Girls with Girls.


If someone younger than you asked for just one piece of advice about sex, what would you tell him or her? And how would you define the purpose of sex?


Read Proverbs 7:6-27. Do you agree with the idea that sex isn’t just physical? Why or why not?
Paul defined sexual immorality as sex outside of marriage. Do you agree? In what ways is this standard trivialized in today’s culture?


Session Three: The Myth of Falling in Love // Feb 22

febseriessquareRead 1 Corinthians 13:4-8


For Everyone:

  1. These verses are commonly read at weddings but apply to all relationships. Which of these characteristics are strongest in you? Which could use work? (e.g. – “I’m pretty good at trusting but I could be way more patient,” etc)
  2. Which quality do you value most in your spouse, roommate or close friend? Why?
  3. Compare and contrast the Apostle Paul’s idea of love vs. the world’s romantic idea of “falling in love.”
