Beginning Life Together is the first study of the Doing Life Together series for adults which is designed to help you live the purpose-driven life through being part of a purpose-driven small group.

This six-week introduction to the purposes will help you to not only understand but also experience them. In addition to study and discussion questions there are icebreakers, study notes, directions for prayer and worship, and texts listed for further study.
