Whether you are NEW online or visiting one of our campuses, we would love to get a chance to know you.
Conversation Starters help us dig deeper, connecting Sunday’s sermons with our Monday lives. These prompts have been designed to help Community Groups grow in their relationship with God, with one another, and with their neighbors. Please know that these questions are meant to be a resource to you. You do not have to follow them verbatim or get through them all. We trust you to know your group and to ask the questions based on your group needs.

1) How would you summarize the sermon in 60 seconds or less? What stood out to you?

2) The average person is fast to dismiss the idea of a supernatural world where good and evil spirits battle, yet they can be fast to accept the “supernatural” world of things like horoscopes. What are other examples of “supernatural” phenomena that people embrace? Why do you think they embrace them?

3) Read Ephesians 6:12. If we don’t see the invisible war around us, we will make real people in our world the real devils. How have you seen this play out in our world? In your life?

4) According to John, the Enemy often comes disguised as an “almost Jesus”. How would you describe what an almost Jesus is in your own words? What are some examples of an almost Jesus in our culture today?

5) How can we guard against being deceived by things that pretend to be good but lead us away from Jesus? What criteria do you use to decide what is legitimate and what is an “almost Jesus”?

• Pray for these days leading up to the election, and how we as people of the light can be peacemakers, no matter which candidates are elected. Pray that we would be able to see who our real enemy is and not make enemies of those who think differently than us politically.

“Power at its worst is the unmaker of humanity—breeding inhumanity in the hearts of those who wield power, denying and denouncing the humanity of the ones who suffer under power...Power, the truest servant of love, can also be its most implacable enemy.” -Andy Crouch, Playing God
1. Who is flourishing because of my power?
2. Who is hurting because of my power?

Baptism Sunday

Please plan to celebrate the baptism of some of our church family with us! This exciting day is one to be celebrated together and we don’t want you to miss out. We will meet in the Worship Center at the Olathe campus, with social distancing and masks required. Although we will not have our typical time of fellowship after the baptism, there will be a treat to take home!Please register if you plan to attend.
