This small group series is based on the small group studies and book by Bill Hybel's entitled "Just Walk Across the Room." There is a curriculum kit (which we used) that includes a DVD and the small group books. This is a four week series as distributed by Bill Hybels. We did the four weeks and then generated our own resource for the last two weeks to make a 6 week series.

Getting Started

Read this first - Notes and Overview.doc. It gives a good overview of the resources used in this series.

Miscellaneous Resources

Poster for the front of the sanctuary. (4mb)


Small Group Folder

Each small group member received a 2-pocket folder. The folder contained introductory information, group organizational information (prayer lists, contact lists, reading schedule, etc.), as well as the study guides. Download the documents separately.

Some sermons notes are in PowerPoint format. Download the free viewer here

Sermon notes are also available in RTF (Rich Text Format). Most every word processor can open a RTF file. Sermon notes have two versions of the notes. The first version without the blanks filled in so you can follow along, and the second version has the blanks filled in. Both versions are contained in the RTF file.
