Jesus Said | Week 1

First of all, Happy almost March!  Secondly, welcome to the first week of the Jesus Said study.  Thank you so much for joining us during this series as we prepare our hearts for Easter.


Below is the small group guide for week 1 of the Jesus Said series. Please feel free to download the guide and share it digitally with your group members.  There will also be paper copies available at the Welcome Center if you would prefer to pick them up there.

Here is the study guide for this week: Jesus Said – Study Guide Week 1

Here is the video for this week.  Please click here if you are unable to see the video.

I look forward to hearing how this study goes.  Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for all that you do to care for, guide, and lead the people in your groups.  Have an awesome weekend!

Thank you, JG


Hello awesome leaders, I hope all is well in your small group.  There are two things I wanted to bring to your attention this week.  Please read below and let me know if you have any questions.


This little guy is sad because he wants to be in a small group but can’t find a group to be in.  OK, not really, but right now we still have a number of people looking for a small group home.  If your group would be willing to take a few people in, please email me and let me know.




On the weekend of Feb 29/March 1, we will begin a series called “Jesus Said”.  This series will be a 6-week study on the words of Jesus in the book of Mark.  Along with this series, each week we will be providing an audio devotional that also encourages the congregation to read along in the book of Mark.  On top of that, we will be providing a small group discussion that will follow the sermon each week.  Check back next week for week 1 of that discussion guide.  


Hello awesome small group leaders,

I wanted to use today to follow up from our leader huddle two weeks ago.

LENT CURRICULUM: The Words of Jesus

During the six weeks leading up to Lent (starting the weekend of Feb 29/Mar 1) we are going to do a sermon series on the words of Jesus in the book of Mark.  As we prepare our hearts for Easter, I thought this would be a good time for our groups to join the weekend content.  Each week of that series, I will be sending out group curriculum that will follow each week’s sermon.  I would love for you to join us during that series.

I am also looking for one more person who might like to help write group curriculum for that series.  If you are interested, please email me and let me know.


I also wanted to pass along the video that we watched at the leader huddle last time.  If you were unable to be there or would like to watch again, please check this out:

As always thank you for your leadership in our congregation and your group!

Thank you, JG
