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. Growing a Heart for God investigates the life of David to learn how to develop a heart that will bring joy to the heart of God. Study 1 and 2 Samuel in 6 Sessions.

Written by the dynamic leaders of church ministry across the country, this series explores life-changing topics from a biblical perspective. New Community guides don't force small groups to choose between Bible study and building community. Just the opposite. Each study delves deeply into Scripture in a way that strengthens relationships. Challenging questions encourage group members to reflect not only on Scripture but also on their own lives---individually and as a part of God's family. And unlike most Bible studies, the New Community series helps study groups convert biblical principles into practical teamwork---helping at the soup kitchen, bringing a meal to someone, writing an encouraging letter, and so on. Filled with prayer, insight, intimacy, and action, each study in this series will help group members line up their lives and relationship more closely with the Bible's model for the church.
