Who wants a ticket?

"When they found Jesus, they said to him, ‘Everyone is searching for you.’ He answered, ‘Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also." (Mark 1:37-38)

 “Let us go…” Jesus has left the synagogue and has healed many people of unclean spirits, or forces of evil. As you can imagine, everyone is amazed at his work. But instead of staying in that place, Jesus leaves with a mission: to go out and to proclaim the Good News.

This Sunday we gather to hear this proclamation in a new, super way. Read More


Guest Post: Christian Life Groups: Can I really fit a small group into my busy schedule?

A new idea is unfolding at Christ the King called Christian Life Groups.  This idea is being launched this month as we begin our all church book study:  If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat. A famous scientist once said that the best way to launch an idea is to wrap it in a person. Perhaps it is better to toss it out of a boat.

Guest Post: Why is There a Boat in the Narthex?

Facing the Fear

I have a confession to make: I’m afraid of joining a Bible study/Christian Life Group.

 

As we gear up to start this all-church book study in Christian Life Groups it’s important for all of us to confront those things that might  hold us back for fully participating.

Some Things to Know About This Book Study

A New Lenten Journey

I hope you will read this book and participate in a Christian Life Group as we invite the whole congregation to discuss it.  It is well written and challenges us to grow in faith.  Growing in faith is something we all want to do.Read More

Do I Really Have Time for This?

Time is a precious commodity.  Everyone is so busy rushing around.  Even retired people say they are so busy that they can’t imagine how they ever had time to go to work.  Maybe dialing back the busyness would be a helpful Lenten discipline. Read More


The Called Out Ones

What is the church? Why do we gather at Christ the King? Or, maybe you wonder as our 7th graders recently did in Confirmation, “Why should I follow Jesus; can’t I just say I believe in him?”

"For those of you who have children and don't know it, we have a nursery downstairs. 
"

Christ the King member Marilyn Riege forwarded me the following e-mail about church bulletin bloopers earlier this week and I thought I would share it with you.  My favorite is "A bean supper will be held on Tuesday evening in the church hall. Music will follow. " I'm adding one of my own that nearly ran in the Herald. (Special thanks to the talented proofreaders who caught it before publication.) Can you find it? Let me know in the comments!

Speak, for your servant is listening.

Now the Lord came and stood there, calling as before, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ And Samuel said, ‘Speak, for your servant is listening.’
