At-Home Response

Following the weekly gathering, you’re invited to respond to the service by engaging in group discussion with those gathered with you. There are also additional activities if you’re looking for more ways to respond!

Discussion Questions

Today we celebrated Christ the King Sunday, the final Sunday in the Christian Year. The Christian Year is a year-long rhythm that unfolds the entire life of Christ. Today, we compiled the whole year’s journey into one service as a recollection of this past Christian Year, and a preview for the upcoming Christian Year (beginning all over again in Advent next Sunday). This retelling of Christ’s life reveals God’s invitation to live Christ’s life alongside him. 

We are invited to…
anticipate Christ’s coming in the season of Advent,
celebrate Christ’s presence on earth in the season of Christmas,
wonder at Christ’s work on earth in the season of Epiphany
reckon our life with Christ’s life and death in the season of Lent
triumph over death with Christ in the season of Easter
and commit to Christ through the Church in the season of Ordinary Time.      

At College Wesleyan Church, we believe that as we journey alongside Christ’s life, we become more like him. 

  1. What part of the story stood out to you today and why?

  2. Why is remembering Christ’s life through the Christian Year valuable for a local church? How has it been valuable for you?
  3. What movement (or season) would you use to describe your current faith journey? – Are you in a time of waiting (Advent)? A time of wonder (Epiphany)? A time of celebration (Easter)?

  4. How might you follow the Christian year in your home? Brainstorm ways you could translate the ethos of the seasons into your home.


invite someone to offer this sending blessing to those gathered: 

         Christ is the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One. May you respond to his invitation to be taken up into his story, so you can bear the fruit of his kingdom on earth.

          In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, you are sent.

Additional Activities


Paul writes that, “We are carefully joined together in [Christ], becoming a holy temple for the Lord” (Eph. 2:21). This is why the logo for the Me to We series includes the Temple. 

In this video, the Bible Project explore how Israel’s temple in the Bible is described as the place where God’s space and humanity’s space are one. In fact, the whole biblical drama can be told as a story about God’s temple. In the opening pages of Genesis, God creates a cosmic temple, and in the person of Jesus, God takes up personal residence in his temple-world. By the end of the biblical story, all of creation has become God’s sacred temple

Join us in celebrating 125 years of College Wesleyan Church (but did you know that wasn’t always our name). Check out the 125 Website for more interesting facts. Watch video testimonies, look at pictures, and share your own. Click the “Take a Walk” link to virtually walk through all the past locations, and discover things that were happening in the world during those times.


The Sunday Worship Service is the start to a week of continued worship service. God’s kingdom-values are revealed to us each Lord’s Day so we can respond by more faithfully living out those values in our home, work-place, market-place, and all our relationships.
