               presented by the Chancel Choir, with Jubilate Ringers, Brass Quartet, Piano

                    and Organ


November 26, 2017 – Last Sunday after Pentecost/Christ the King Sunday

Scripture: Ephesians 1:15-23; Matthew 25:31-46


Sermon Synopsis: If Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords, why is this world uncommitted to following him? Does it really make any difference? Jesus came to usher in the Kingdom of God. We look forward to the time when Christ’s reign will be fulfilled, when God’s “shalom” will be established. The Christian hope is that this world/age will pass away and a new world of peace and justice will be the rule. It is that hope that gives Christians purpose and focus.

Sermon Text: God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. Ephesians 1:20-21 (NRSV)
