Discussion Notes



Discussion Notes are provided for the sake of helping especially growth group members to have a constructive conversation about the material at hand. What follows are discussion notes that are based primarily on sermons that I have preached. 

By the way, a growth group is a group of about 10 people who meet on a regular basis (i.e., weekly for about 13 weeks) to encourage one another to grow in their discipleship and discuss how to live by God's word.
