He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 1:13-14

When Jesus walked the earth he was mocked, beaten, and spat upon. He was stripped, humiliated, and nailed to a cross. Why? What was the charge against him? “This is Jesus, the King of the Jews,” is what the inscription read above his head as he hung there dying.

Jesus’ claim to be a King resulted in his death. The truth is that Jesus really is King, and his Kingship results in our life! As Paul writes, through faith in Jesus we have been delivered from the domain of darkness and our citizenship has been transferred to the kingdom of Christ, and it is there that we have redemption and forgiveness of our sins.

It’s this amazing truth that gathers us in worship. The church - our local, visible representation of the kingdom of Jesus - comes together to give glory and honor to our King.

We do this as we sing, read Scripture, and pray together, all the while keeping our King Jesus Christ at the center of everything we do. For our families with youngsters we have childcare available throughout the service for ages 3 and under. We also feature a special Kids’ Time and activity bags during the service for all young worshipers. In this week’s sermon, Stewart Pattison continues our Kingdom Come sermon series with a message from Matthew 27:27-44.

We hope you’ll join us in worship this week! You can prepare for gathered worship by finding a few moments to simply engage with the Scripture and songs for this week. Ask God to use our time together to draw you closer to Him, to build up His church, and to glorify Himself. This week’s song playlist can be found on Spotify and YouTube. Everything you need to know about our Sunday worship services can be found on our website.

See you soon!
