We are encouraging all small groups to go through the Anchored study. You can find everything you need at gethope.net/anchored. We will offer a shortened message-based study from now through the end of the year to allow your group to go through Anchored. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Abraham trusted God and his entire life changed. In the same way, when we trust in God, everything changes. We have a new identity and can live in a new way, and this should lead us to be people of gratitude.
Genesis 17:9-11, 23
Colossians 2:11, 3:10-11
