Worship This Sunday

April 2

Join us in worship on Sunday, April 2, as we continue our sermon series on "The Language of Salvation".  This week's message is "The Citizens of Jesus' Kingdom" with the Scripture reading from Mark 1:14-15; Luke 11:20; Philippians 3:20-21; Acts 1:6-8 and 1 Peter 2:9-12. 


“King” and “Kingdom” sound strange to modern ears.  But in Jesus, they are glorious.  Jesus is King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. His reign — His influence — is glorious and good, full of light, purity, holiness, love, and joy.  If we declare and dedicate our loyalty and lives to Him as our King, we have the privilege of being citizens of that Kingdom — and we can help bring people out of darkness into His marvelous light!  There is no greater joy, privilege, or purpose in life than this!  Join us Sunday and let’s share our citizenship! 


We will receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion at both services this Sunday.
