Pictures from our Recent Ladies' Service Day

Here are some pictures from our recent Ladies' service day. Our Ladies Ministry team, led by Laura Talbert organized a day to make dresses for little girls in Africa through the non-profit organization Little Dresses for Africa:

These ladies had a wonderful time of fellowship while they worked hard to serve others. Our prayer is that these little dresses will be a blessing in helping to make some beautiful little girls in Africa even more beautiful.

Worship Today at 11AM for Those who Can Make It

We are going to have worship today at 11:00 for those that can make it to church.

The roads are not plowed as of right now, but there has been enough traffic on the secondary roads to pack the snow down. There are cars and other vehicles without 4x4 out driving around, and they seem to be doing fine. The key will be whether you can get out of your own neighborhood to the nearest secondary road. 

So, if you can make it, come. If you cannot, stay home. We will have a liturgy and Eucharist for those who can make it. I will record the sermon for those of you who stay home to listen later if you wish.

If you would like a ride to church from someone who has 4x4, let me know and we will try to accommodate you.

The Lord bless you, and above all, stay safe!

Adult Sunday School: Who is God?

Who or what is God? Is He a person or a power? Is He a he? Is there only one God? What is His nature? What is He like? Does God have an interest in me or my life? Does God love me? Does He care about me? Does He listen to me? What does God want from me? Does He demand anything from me? If so, do I have to give it to Him?

Is there a God?

Why does all this matter?

Over the next few weeks in Adult Sunday School at Christ Our King we will be exploring the answers to these very important questions. Where should we go to get such answers? Last fall in our Sunday School we answered that these answers are available to us in God's Holy Word, the Bible.

What does the Bible say about who God is? The Bible is a progressive revelation. In other words, it reveals things about God and us progressively, bit by bit, as we walk through the biblical story. Therefore, in this class we will be looking directly at the Scriptures, starting from the beginning, and learning how God reveals himself to us as we explore the beauty of the biblical narrative.

This Sunday School Class will begin on Sunday, March 10 at 9:00AM. If you want to learn more about God, who he is, and what he is doing, come join us!
