Huddle // May 2018 — Week 4
Huddle time is an opportunity for you to connect to each other and grow in faith. The below questions are just a resource for you to use or start from. Don’t feel like you have to use them all or rush through good discussion if it’s happening.

What does it look like for us to allow this discussion to influence those around us? What is our response in our relationships and our community?
Share with me what or who you are praying for and why.
