Sermon
Beginning this Sunday and continuing through the end of this liturgical year, we will begin hearing some of Jesus’ hardest sayings as well as some of the harshest judgments from the Hebrew (Old Testament) scriptures. This Sunday, Jesus speaks first about his own passion, death and resurrection (none of which the disciples understand), before responding to their “who is the greatest” question. Pastor Derr presides and preaches at 8:30 a.m. and preaches at 11:00 a.m. Presiding at 11:00 a.m. in celebration of his 45th anniversary of ordination is retired pastor Boyd Faust.

You may also participate in livestream worship via Facebook or YouTube. Log on at 11 a.m. or access the archived service anytime after.

Masks are required at all times indoors at Christ the King Church to protect the most vulnerable among us. As you consider in-person worship, please assess your personal situation regarding vulnerability to COVID-19, including pre-existing conditions and the vaccination status of yourself and your household.

Zoom Bible Study Outline for September 16 – October 28

ZOOM BIBLE STUDY with Pastor Derr: September 16-October 28, 2021
(AUTO)BIOGRAPHY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: Studies in Luke/Acts

3. Portions of the Book of Acts are read every year during the 50 days of Easter.
4. Luke is my personal favorite Gospel.
