Recessional Hymn

A Morsel for Meditation
Christians should embrace their political responsibilities not as citizens, or as representatives of political parties, or as a lobby group shouting to be heard, but as ambassadors of the Prince of Peace who came as a servant, welcomed children and foreigners into his circle, and taught us to love our enemies.

The church, not the state,gives history its meaning (March 25, 2020).

Stewardship Today
Debbie Shaffer - Stewardship Committee

“At the end of your life on earth you will be evaluated and rewarded according to how well you handled what God entrusted to you.” - Rick Warren
OCTOBER 8, 7pm
Alpha Online via Zoom!
Alpha teaches the basics of Christianity in an environment that fosters conversations and relationships.

HOW IT WORKS
At each session there will be a gathering time. After the gathering time, there is a dynamic talk in video form for about 25 minutes on a Christian response to a key life question. After the video we meet in discussion groups of about 8-10 people to discuss the talk with no obligation to say anything yet there is nothing you can’t say. (While the goal is to keep everyone in the same groups each week, we have had to shuffle things a little this week due to numbers, so it is possible you might be in a different group than last week.)
 
INVITE FRIENDS
Remember it is not too late to invite a friend to join you! We encourage you to bring new guests up to week 3 (September 24th) Should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly at loganhurst@gmail.com.

K is for KING

In the Divine Alphabet, K is for King. God is our king, and it’s no metaphor. That is to say, he’s not “like” a king, but he really is one. 

The kingship of God is manifest in his authority over his people. The other nations had their human kings. By unique contrast, Israel was to have no king, because her king was the Lord. He was hers, and she belonged to him. (continue reading)
