This six-session small-group kit equips small groups to foster closer relationships with one another, with family, with friends, and with God. Following the ideas in his book I’d Like You More if You Were More like Me, John Ortberg invites readers to look past their smartphones and reflect on the joys of everyday interactions. This small group connection kit also includes ideas on using technology for the benefit of relationships, and it offers digital resources such as recipes, icebreakers, and additional deep-diving questions.
Everyone was created for relationships. This small group kit shows readers how restorative—and how easy—true intimacy can be.
