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. What was the significance of the temple in Jesus’ day?

2. According to Jesus in John 2:19-21, what is His relationship to the temple? How does Jesus see the temple differently than the Jews? What are the implications of these differences?

3. What similarities do you notice between this story and the story that preceded it about Jesus turning water into wine?

4. The temple was the center of the Jewish religion, and Jesus’ actions were a judgment upon its corruption. How can the Christian church today guard against the kind of corruption that infected the temple institution?

Praise Jesus for becoming the new temple. Pray for Christ Community - for our elders, pastors, and lay leaders - that we would guard against the kind of practices that corrupted the temple in Jesus’ day.

Prayer Requests

As a staff it is a privilege to pray for our congregation. Social distance does not change that! If you are in need of prayer click the link to fill out an online prayer request.
Title: The Temple
Scripture: John 2:12-25
Speaker: Brent Nelsen,
“Instead of solemn dignity and the murmur of prayer, there is the bellowing of cattle and the bleating of sheep. Instead of brokenness and contrition, holy adoration and prolonged petition, there is noisy commerce.”

- D.A. Carson
> Jesus fought to make God accessible to everyone.
> Jesus died so that people could have access to God.
Need pastoral care?
