King of Kings
Brooke Ligertwood, Jason Ingram, Scott Ligertwood

In the darkness we were waiting
Without hope without light
Till from Heaven You came running
There was mercy in Your eyes

To fulfil the law and prophets
To a virgin came the Word
From a throne of endless glory
To a cradle in the dirt

Praise the Father
Praise the Son
Praise the Spirit three in one
God of Glory
Praise forever to the King of Kings

To reveal the kingdom coming
And to reconcile the lost
To redeem the whole creation
You did not despise the cross

For even in Your suffering
You saw to the other side
Knowing this was our salvation
Jesus for our sake You died

And the morning that You rose
All of heaven held its breath
Till that stone was moved for good
For the Lamb had conquered death

And the dead rose from their tombs
And the angels stood in awe
For the souls of all who'd come
To the Father are restored

And the Church of Christ was born
Then the Spirit lit the flame
Now this Gospel truth of old
Shall not kneel shall not faint

By His blood and in His Name
In His freedom I am free
For the love of Jesus Christ
Who has resurrected me

All Hail the Power of Jesus Name
Edward Perronet, John Rippon, Oliver Holden

All hail the pow'r of Jesus' name
Let angels prostrate fall
Bring forth the royal diadem
And crown Him Lord of all
Bring forth the royal diadem
And crown Him Lord of all

Ye chosen seed of Israel's race
Ye ransomed from the fall
Hail Him who saves you by His grace
And crown Him Lord of all
Hail Him who saves you by His grace
And crown Him Lord of all

Sinners whose love can ne'er forget
The wormwood and the gall
Go spread your trophies at His feet
And crown Him Lord of all
Go spread your trophies at His feet
And crown Him Lord of all

The Lion and the Lamb
Brenton Brown, Brian Johnson, Leeland Mooring
He's coming on the clouds
Kings and kingdoms will bow down
And every chain will break
As broken hearts declare His praise
For who can stop the Lord Almighty

Our God is the Lion
The Lion of Judah
He's roaring with power
And fighting our battles
And every knee will bow before Him
Our God is the Lamb
The Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world
His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Every knee will bow before Him

So open up the gates
Make way before the King of kings
The God who comes to save
Is here to set the captives free
For who can stop the Lord Almighty

Who can stop the Lord Almighty
Who can stop the Lord (Almighty)

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) We learned that Babylon (or any modern-day human political, military or economic system) WILL eventually fall. How does that teaching influence your feelings on the election?

3) Read Revelation 14:6. What’s significant about the gospel being described as ‘eternal’ and who the angel has chosen to proclaim to?

4) We should find out which side of the Babylonian coin we tend to be on. Are we more likely to fall into the sin of political idolatry or political passivity ie. that Election Day is everything or that Election Day is nothing? How do we guard against these opposite errors?

5) How should our faith inform our reaction to the election results? How can we as Christians be winsome whether our candidate wins or loses?

Pray for our nation and our city as Election Day arrives, the weather turns, and sickness increases. Ask for the Lord’s guidance to be a light in our world this winter.
Title: Follow the Lamb
Scripture: Revelation 14
Speaker: Reid Kapple,
“There is no avoiding politics. The moment one life impinges upon another politics begins…. No action or belief is private.” - Eugene Peterson, Reversed Thunder
>> Babylon Has Fallen:
- There is less to politics than we expect

“The most alluring and dangerous deity in the United States is the omnipresent, syncretistic god of nationalism mixed with Christianity lite: religious beliefs, language, and practices that are superficially Christian but infused with the national myths and habits...which is precisely why Revelation is addressed to the seven churches, not to Babylon.” - Michael Gorman, Reading Revelation Responsibly
>> God’s Kingdom Is Coming:
- There is more to politics than we realize.

“We should participate in politics primarily to help others and represent our Lord and savior in the public square. This doesn’t mean we have to ignore our own interests, but we can't be consumed and misled by them. Adherence to Jesus’ teaching, such as the sermon on the mount, will prevent us from approaching politics in a self serving way. When in conflict we should demonstrate that our public witness is more important than winning a political battle.” -Justin Giboney, Compassion & Conviction
>> Follow the Lamb Wherever He Goes
>> Three Practices:
- Political Repentance
- Faithful Presence
- Compelling Witness
“Politics provides Christians with an opportunity to actively love our neighbors through advocacy, policy making and civic representation. To refuse to engage in politics is to refuse to take advantage of a useful tool for God’s work.” - Justin Giboney, Compassion & Conviction
“Pursuing the common good with gospel integrity requires both a healthy state and an ecclesial anchor. For some of us, that will mean rethinking our tendency to vilify ‘the state’ and its procedures. For others of us, it will mean revaluing the centrality of the church as our political center. A body politic whose worship includes regular confession of her sins while at the same time laboring for kingdom come, concerned about our country while at the same time desiring a better one.” - James KA Smith, Awaiting the King

We will meet in the Worship Center at the Olathe campus, with social distancing and masks required.
