Matthew 16 – The Foundation, The Pillars, and the Purpose
What do you think is the foundation of The Church? How about a local church/congregation?
When you think of the pillars of the church you grew up in, what names come to mind? Why were they the pillars?
What kind of elder do you look up to?
Have you ever thought of yourself as an elder? You are to somebody.
What might you need to do or change in order to start being a positive and strengthening influence in this church?
What do you think the purpose was for the church you grew up in? Was that a good cause for people to rally around?
What do you think needs to be the purpose of this church?
Are you contributing towards that goal?
