Advent at Christ Our King

Do you long for someone or something to fix this broken world? Advent is the season to express such a longing.

Advent is from the Latin word advenire, which means "to come to." The season of Advent is therefore about our longing for something to be done to heal the brokenness of our world. Come join us as we watch and pray together, longing for justice, peace, healing, and unity in our city, our country, and our world.

This Advent at Christ Our King we are having special services, messages, and music especially arranged to help us increase our longing for Christ to come and for us to enter into our calling to watch and pray for His coming.

Scripture Text: Luke 21:25-36
Message: Longing for Someone to Fix our World

Sunday, December 9, 10:15 AM
Scripture Text: Luke 3:1-20
Message: The Announcement of His Coming

Advent Missions Offerings

This Advent at Christ Our King we will be taking up a special missions offering each of the four Sundays of Advent.

This offering will be taken up separately from the regular offering, and the Session is asking each family to consider giving above your normal amount for this special purpose.

Each week of the four Sundays of Advent we will take up a separate Advent offering. These funds will be pooled together, and building on what we have been learning in our Fall Bible studies, the funds will go to support three areas of mission: local, domestic, and international.

Locally, we will be supporting the ministry of RUF lead by Rev. Ross Dixon. RUF is the college ministry of our denomination and through it we seek to proclaim the lordship of Christ on the college campus. If you would like to learn more about RUF at Mizzou, click here.

Domestically, we will be supporting the ministry of Pastor Jamison Galt who is in the process of planting a church in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Jamison is a close friend of Pastor LeCroy's and his church is doing a wonderful work to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in New York City. To learn more about Christ Church Clinton Hill, click here. You can also keep up with Christ Church on Facebook by going here and liking their page.

Internationally, we will be supporting the home church of our own Esther Njuguna, the Uthiru, Kenya congregation of the Presbyterian Church of East Africa. Their church has several financial needs and we are going to help them as a token of our unity with them in Christ and our partnership with them in the Great Commission.

I would ask you all to prayerfully consider how you can give above and beyond your normal giving this Advent season. This is also a great opportunity for children to be involved in saving up their money and giving to these expressions of our Lord Jesus Christ's mission to renew the entire earth.

-Pastor LeCroy

Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes

This year the WIC ministry of Christ Our King is organizing a service project for Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan's Purse. We will soon have printed information available but the website has lots of information and tips on what to pack in the shoeboxes, how to pack them, and the ministry's history.

If you have never participated in this ministry project before, please prayerfully consider doing so. It is a lot of fun to fill the boxes and children especially love to be involved.

If you find you haven't the time to shop for materials or don't enjoy doing so, we will happily take a cash donation and shop on your behalf. Collections will be held no later than November 12th so don't delay!

Please see Terri Royer or Laura Talbert for more details.

Men's Fellowship Night - Friday, October 19

Christ Our King will be having a men's fellowship night on Friday, October 19 at 7:00PM at Pastor LeCroy's house. The subject of the night will be Texas Hold'em Poker. Texas Hold'em is a fun game that anyone can learn to play. It has the luck of any card game, but many people find Texas Hold'em so much fun because it does involve quite a bit of skill.

If you don't know how to play Hold'em, don't worry. It is easy to learn and to begin to compete and play right away. We will play a few hands with no risk at the first so that everyone can get the rules down.

We will have a modest $5 buy in, and one optional buy back. What this means is that the most you can lose is $10. Look at it this way, that's a pretty cheap night with the guys, and one of us will win some money to take their wife out on a date (That will be what we will all do with our winnings, ladies ;-).

Bring your own refreshments to share. We will play in the garage so that any sort of pleasing incense (if you get my meaning) will be able to be offered to the Lord.

Please begin now by thinking about what friends and neighbors you can invite to this event as well. If there is a big crowd we will start the tournament with two tables.

Fall Dinner Groups

Our September-November dinner groups have been formed! 

If you haven't yet been contacted by a group leader, you should be very shortly. Our groups are somewhat smaller this season to leave room to invite new people who join us, friends or neighbors, or those you just haven't had an opportunity to get to know very well yet.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Christ Our King Adult Sunday School: Basic Christian Beliefs - Beginning Sept. 9

Click Here to Listen to the Lectures in this Series.

We are continuing this series into the Winter and Spring of 2013. We will beginning in January with a series on the theology of the Lord's Supper.

Theology is simply asking questions and seeking answers. That's all it is. Everyone has theological questions. It is virtually inescapable.

Do you know what you believe about the Lord's Supper or Baptism? What happens when we die? What will happen at the end of the age, or is there even an end to the age? What about the bible, what is it, how do we approach it? What about God? Is he all powerful? All knowing? What about Jesus Christ? Was he a good man, a prophet or something else?

What are some of the theological questions that you have?

The Fall Adult Sunday School Class at Christ Our King will be an exploration of important topics in Christian Theology. There will be some major topics that we will cover: sacraments, salvation, God, Jesus Christ, the Church, etc, but we will also be fielding your questions as well. Is there something that you have wondered about life, the bible, the church, or theology? Please use the form just below to submit your question:

Sunday School at Christ Our King will begin again on Sunday, September 9th at 9:00 AM. Children's Sunday School and infant care is provided.

Christ Our King Fall Bible Studies, The Heart of Evangelism

View the schedule for weekly readings here.

Have you ever questioned if you should be involved in the spreading of the gospel? Have you ever wondered how you should go about spreading the good news of Jesus Christ?  Does the prospect of sharing your faith scare you?

This fall all the Christ Our King Bible studies will be exploring the topic of evangelism using the book The Heart of Evangelism by Jerram Barrs.

Professor Barrs is a former disciple of Francis Schaeffer and a current professor at Covenant Theological Seminary. His approach to evangelism is different than many other approaches you may be familiar with. He stresses relational evangelism, which means sharing our lives and faith in natural ways with those people who already surround us.

Don't let the fact that Jerram is a professor scare you from reading the book or attending this Bible study! Jerram writes in a very accessible and clear way that everyone will be able to comprehend. He is also a favorite professor of many students due to his winsome approach and kind and caring heart.

The Bible studies themselves will be informal, discussion based studies. The reading assignments will be small so that everyone can find time to prepare and participate.

The church will have some copies of the book available for purchase. Additionally you may purchase it yourself here (There is a Kindle edition!):

We have three Bible studies to choose from. Wednesday morning ladies' study lead by Gretchen Shults; Wednesday night men's study led by Pastor LeCroy; and Wednesday evening ladies' study lead by Laura Talbert. Please e-mail those leaders for more information.

Fall Sunday School Gearing Up, Volunteers Needed

Dear Congregation, 

As the school year gears up this week, we are beginning to plan for the start of Sunday School on Sunday, Sept. 9th, 2012.  However, we need some more teachers to volunteer in order to complete our planning!  Currently, Christ Our King offers 4 Sunday School classes for children during the adult Sunday School time from 9-10 AM.  The classes are Nursery, Little Kids, Elementary/Middle School Kids, and High School Kids.  The age cut-offs are not at all strict but just to give you an idea of who you might find in each class: Nursery = birth to 3, Little Kids = 3 to 6, Elementary/Middle Kids = 6 to 12, High School Kids = 12 to 19.  Teaching in the Nursery would simply involve playing with the children.  Teaching in the Little and Elementary/Middle group would involve continuing in the Jesus Storybook Bible Curriculum that was begun in January of this year.  Teaching in the High School group would involve following a curriculum (that is currently being decided upon).  Each group of teachers would be asked to attend a short meeting planned at a convenient time to go over materials and generate ideas for making the lessons exciting and appropriate for our setting. 

Please think about being involved in this vital ministry in our church.  Hopefully, we will have enough teachers volunteer so that teachers only need to teach every other week (or maybe every 3rd week).  If you don't feel comfortable committing at that level but would be willing to be on the substitute list to help out when others cannot, please let me know as well.  

I will be making an announcement at church this Sunday and asking for anyone who is interested in helping out or who has questions to let me know after the service.
Thanks so much!

Texas Hold'em is a fun game that anyone can learn to play. It has the luck of any card game, but many people find Texas Hold'em so much fun because it does involve quite a bit of skill.

We will have a modest $5 buy in, and no buy backs. What this means is that the most you can lose is $5. Look at it this way, our men's fellowship night will still come out cheaper than the recent ladies night out dinner, and one of us will win some money to take their wife out on a date (That will be what we will all do with our winnings, ladies ;-).

Bring your own refreshments to share. We will play in the garage so that any sort of pleasing incense (if you get my meaning) will be able to be offered to the Lord.

Our Bible teachers will instruct and challenge us what it means to be men and to be godly leaders in the life of the church, in our personal and home lives, and in our careers and callings out in the world. The text of Genesis 2 will be our jumping off point, but we will look at several other scriptures as well. Each talk will focus on all areas of men's lives, including college students, young married, with children, etc.

Information on Church Picnic this Sunday

At this Sunday's (July 1st) church picnic we are going to have what they call in the Carolinas a Low Country Boil. Others call it a Shrimp boil or, if you are in Louisiana, a crawfish boil (substituting crawfish for shrimp).

Here's how we are going to do it. The church will purchase the shrimp, because getting the right shrimp is the most important part of the boil. Then, we will ask $5 per adult (or child who eats like an adult - no more than $15 per family) to pay for your share of the shrimp. In addition, each family is asked to bring 1lb (or one package) of polish kielbasa sausage, a 5lb sack of new potatoes, or a two packs of frozen mini ears of corn on the cob (like shown here). Beyond that, the church will provide plates, napkins, utensils, lemonade and water. Bring your own beer/wine/etc. and each family should bring some sort of desert.

In order to make sure we have all our bases covered, click on this link to go to a spreadsheet to RSVP (so that we know how much shrimp to get) and sign up for what to bring.

The beauty of this kind of picnic is that you don't have to prepare anything. Just bring the ingredients and Tommy and Pastor Tim will boil them up for you.

One more important thing: please be at the picnic by five with your ingredients so that we can eat at six. We have to boil those potatoes, corn and sausage before we eat them, so please be there at five. There will be horseshoes, washers, and bocce among other games to play.

Oh, and one more thing: invite your friends and neighbors. We want to share God's blessings with them!

Please see this blog post for more information on the location of the picnic.

Men's Bible Study This Wednesday

For our first men's bible study this week, please read the first two chapters of A Table in the Mist by Pastor Jeff Meyers. You can also re-listen to Pastor LeCroy's sermon from two weeks ago (June 17th) that covers the material in these two chapters. (This sermon will be made available on our sermon audio site later in the day Tuesday. Click here.)

The study will be held at Pastor LeCroy's home: 2103 Iris Dr., Columbia, MO 65202 @ 7:00PM. We will have fellowship, prayer, and discussion on the text. Please invite friends and also bring tobacco of your preference if the mood hits us (and the weather is not too hot).

Church Picnic, July 1st

Christ Our King will be having a picnic on Sunday, July 1st from 4PM at the Burford Shelter in Cosmo Park:

Well start picnicking at 4, but we'll plan on eating around 6PM or so. This picnic will be BYOeverything, but plan on bringing sides and deserts to share and provide a little extra in case of visitors. The church will provide the fire to cook the meat along with plates, napkins, utensils, and condiments.

Please bring lawn games or any other outdoor activity you may like. There seems to be a horse shoe pit next to the shelter, so someone may want to bring horse shoes. Bocce would also be fun. There is also a playground immediately adjacent to the shelter.

Also, as always, please think about any friends you would like to bring along.

A map of the park can be seen here:
Burford shelter is shelter #4.

Men's Bible Study Beginning June 27th

Christ Our King will begin a weekly Men's Bible Study beginning Wednesday, June 27 at 7:00PM at Pastor LeCroy's home.

We will be reading the book A Table in the Mist, which is a study on the book of Ecclesiastes. This will also roughly follow the sermon series that Pastor LeCroy will be preaching through this summer.

We will have a time of prayer, bible study, and fellowship. Please come and invite any friends you know who may be interested.

The book will be made available to buy at church in the next couple of weeks.

Two New Hymns for Sunday

We are going to try something different in worship this Sunday. We are going to have guitar accompaniment and sing two new songs. Some of you will know these songs, because they are from the RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) Hymnbook and have been recorded by a group called Indelible Grace.

The first hymn is The Church's One Foundation. Sheet music for the melody and the words can be found here:
a recording of the song to listen to can be found here:

The second hymn is Jesus, with Thy Church Abide. Sheet music can be found here:
and a recording of the hymn here:

Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with these hymns so that we can worship together exuberantly this Sunday!

Volunteers Needed for "Art in the Park"

Art in the Park needs volunteers on Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3!  

Former COK members and current member Stephanie Jenkins are involved with the Columbia Art League (CAL) which promotes artists and offers art classes in downtown Columbia.  Art in the Park is CAL's biggest fundraiser for the year and is totally staffed by volunteers.  It is a great opportunity to serve the arts community and meet the people of Columbia who come to enjoy the event.  For more information about the event, click here.

Stephanie has been on the steering committee for the event and works closely with the Education Director Patty.  Volunteers are still needed for Saturday afternoon in the Kid's Art Areas (which Stephanie will be supervising all weekend) and pretty much all day Sunday.  A big need on Sunday is helping get the artists packed up and moved out of the park.  This job is called 'load out' and wouldn't conflict with church activities because it is from 3:30 to 7:30 PM.  Emily Smith has done that job before and says it is a bunch of fun to help because you will probably get to drive a golf cart!!  Anyways, if you have any time to spare and don't mind getting a little sweaty, fill out the volunteer form and sign up here.  If you want to specifically work with another person in our church or in the kid's area, please be sure to note that in the comments section or the volunteer coordinators will put you where they need you instead.  (For the Kid's Art Areas put that you need to work for Patty and Stephanie).  Please call or email Stephanie with any questions-- 678-665-1797  or  

Thanks for considering serving our community in this way.
