WATCHING THE LESSONS

Rick will preach a new lesson each week, so your group can simply attend one of our weekend services or watch live online. The discussion questions will be posted on this page in advance each week. The series is also available for you and your group to view online at thehills.org. A new lesson will be posted on Tuesday of each week and the discussion questions will be available for download under the video.

Pray for Reign
