Dynamic encounters with God's Word, community-building opportunities, and life-changing applications are built into every session of the New Community small group Bible study guides. Challenging questions to answer during the week encourage you to reflect on Scripture and its impact on your life, both as an individual and as part of a community of Christ followers. The group time will then focus on applying the lessons to knowing, loving, serving and celebrating each other. Daniel, Pursuing Integrity will show you how to meet God in the challenging times and come through the fire stronger and more faithful. 6 Sessions with Leader's Notes

Stand Strong in Life's Furnaces How do you respond when the bottom drops out? What happens to your character quotient when things don't go the way you planned? How do you react when the temperature is rising, you are under attack, and God seems far away? Daniel discovered that the furnace experiences of life refine and define us. Spiritual integrity rarely grows when everything goes our way. Instead, God uses things like a furnace, a lion's den, a mad king, and exile in a foreign country to forge character in a soul. If you long to meet God in the challenging times and come through the fire stronger and more faithful, Daniel is ready to show the way.
