Christ Life 6

 

Group Members Reading: Luke 14:25-30; 1 Thessalonians 3:10; Hebrews 11:6.

 

 

This week is the 6th study in the Christ Life series! The theme goes along with the old children’s song, “He’s Still Working On Me”, and is still relevant for us today, as God is still working on us - We are a work in progress!
