The 40 Days of Community five-session devotional---part of the Living with Purpose small group Bible study by Rick Warren---is a dynamic individual or small group study that will help you learn how to fulfill God’s five purposes for your life.
By unpacking the biblical support for each of the five purposes (fellowship, spiritual growth, service, worship, and sharing the good News) you’ll learn the ways it applies to you and your circle of influence, and how you can use this knowledge to benefit God’s kingdom.
Through it, Warren also explains how God planned for Christians to fulfill his purposes in community with each other in our church families, small groups, and in the world as a whole. Why did God plan it this way? Because we’re better together!
