“Going Deeper” Small Group
Wednesdays at 6 p.m. | Beginning January 10
No Cost | Led by Megan Luhrs
Each Sunday at Genesis and Central at least three pastors are preaching from the same Scripture passage and on the same topic. Yet, the pastors deliver their messages quite differently. “Going Deeper” provides the chance for participants to come together and discuss Sunday’s sermons and to review, personalize, and encourage application of the sermon as well as ask questions.  The group will also discuss what impressed, surprised, encouraged, and challenged them. “Going Deeper” is a great way to learn from one another and grow deeper in discipleship.
