Purpose of the Church (4 session study)

Purpose of the Church (4 session study)

Assess how your church is following the original purpose of the church.

The following 4-session course will help you and your group assess how your church is following the original purpose of the church by asking questions like: Why is it that we seem to feel deeply about, and remember, the hurts associated with church? How can we help people who have been hurt by a church? Are you, as church members, pleased with your church's ministries, or are you unsatisfied with the results? Do you think local churches turned out the way God planned? If not, how are they missing their purpose?
