"Chasing Purpose" toolkit

Finding the Meaning of Life

You've probably heard this before: God created you on purpose, with a purpose, for a purpose!

Our five-week series, "Chasing Purpose," will help you make sense of what it means to live your purpose. You'll learn how to live in the joy of living out God's plan for your life.

Because God has a plan, you have a purpose

We’ve collected some things to help you dig into the teaching + share the excitement with everyone in your circles — your groups, serving teams, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.
