ENCOUNTER: AT THE RIVER
Below you'll find an encounter with Jesus. The journey takes you through scriptures and onto some applications that may be helpful to you. Feel free to answer the questions as deeply as you feel comfortable.

The scripture portion will give you a tally on what you got correct. This is mainly to help you lead you toward the answer. The open-ended questions have no correct answer, it is simply for you to engage with the text on your own life.

Your answers will only be shared by select leaders assigned to your journey. Should you feel more comfortable to do so, we would be happy to connect with you through phone or text. To connect, fill out the contact info at the bottom of the lesson.
