Are We Living In The "End Times"? • Alpine Chapel

Not all questions are created equal. In fact, every question you’re asked comes from a different place and requires a different response. Giving a good answer doesn’t mean having the right response. It means taking the time to figure out where each question is coming from and what the person asking really want.

Join Alpine Chapel for Part Four of our series “Asking For a Friend” and listen as Spiritual Formation Pastor Alex Gowler shares a framework for understanding where questions come from, then uses that framework to respond to a big question: are we living in the “end times”?

TEACHING & DISCUSSION (45 MINUTES)

For groups process this weekend’s message from Alpine, spend time watching the message before you meet together. After watching, use the questions below to help get the conversation going:
  • What are some questions that people have been asking you lately?
  • Where do you think those questions are coming from (curiosity, confusion, or concern)?
  • When people talk about the “end times”, what are your thoughts and feelings?
  • What stood out to you from the message?
