A Church For The End of The World

The world is changing. Technological progress has led to amazing developments – we can access anything, anywhere, or anyone in the world with the device in our pockets. We are filled with confidence that we will make a better future for ourselves. That we have no limits. The kingdom is right around the corner…

At the same time, fewer and fewer people are attending church in the US. People who grew up in church are leaving, disengaging. Belief in a kingdom we can make for ourselves is strong, but it is a kingdom without a King.

What is the church to be in this cultural moment?

Join us as we go to an ancient source, the book of Revelation, 7 letters written by Jesus to the church of the 1st century that provide the way forward for the church of today. A church for the end of the world.

06 Ahab and War

With Us - Leawood Campus

1 Kings 20:1-43

From Series: "With Us - Leawood Campus"

How do you live in a place where you don’t seem to belong – where hostility abounds and nothing comes easy? Nearly 3000 years ago, the Prophet Elijah wrestled with these questions. He longed to follow God through one of the darkest periods in Israel’s history, but found himself facing difficulty after difficulty, heartache after heartache. As the wicked King Ahab coaxed God’s people deeper and deeper into rebellion, Elijah responded some days with courage and others with despair. He demonstrated great faith, and felt deep fear. Through it all, he learned one resounding lesson: God is faithful. When our world feels dark and hopeless, He is with us. When we feel marginalized and discarded, He is with us. When our problems are complex and solutions feel elusive, He is with us. When we confront the brokenness around us and within us, God is there – just as He was with Elijah. What do you do when you just want to give up? This summer, join us as we talk together through this powerful narrative and rediscover the reality that we are not alone. Because no matter where we go or what we face, this truth remains: God is with us.

Conversation Starters

Conversation Starters are one way we at Christ Community seek to dig deeper into the current sermon and biblical text. They are available during community group sessions.

There are two easy ways to locate
Conversation Starters:

1)  Weekly Update emails, delivered to your personal email every Saturday morning, will always contain a link to Sermon Notes, and Conversation Starters (when available);

or

2) Use the Sermon Locator to select your sermon by campus, speaker and date. Below the title graphic select the link for EXTRAS. Sermon Notes, and Conversation Starters are located under EXTRAS.

NOTE: If EXTRAS does not exist, there are no Sermon Notes or Conversation Starters for that sermon.
