Book Club
Our CTK Book Club's next meeting will be Friday, August 1st at 7:00PM at the home of the Garcias.  All Men and Women are invited to participate. Our new book
God's Smuggler is an autobiography that begins as the story of a Dutch family enduring German occupation in World War II. But this is only the start. After a time of disinterest in God, young Andrew becomes a believer and pioneers a remarkable career delivering banned Bibles to Communist Europe. His work then grows to include others in delivering aid to persecuted Christians in post-WWII Eastern Europe.
I am hoping that we can have a couple guests that lived behind the iron curtain at this time to give us insight on how they we able to worship during this dark time. Any Questions on this please contact Linnea Wentworth at Linnea@cyclonefamily.com

 

 

Worship
The church exists to worship God and at Christ the King we believe that worship (whatever style or format it takes) is good.  This is one of the primary ways we show our love to Him.  Matthew 4:10 says, “Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.” Also, Psalm 34:3 states, “O magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together” (NASB).  We worship not because we have to (as if it were a duty), but in response to the amazing gift of forgiveness and love Christ showed to us first on the cross.  It is a privilege for us to worship as His followers.

Discipleship
We want to grow together as God’s people.  Jesus paid the price for us on the cross and justifies us completely before God.  So, in response, we desire to become more like Jesus each day.  At Christ the King we grow in Spiritual maturity, “…so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12b-13, NASB).

Stewardship
At Christ the King, one of the things we exist to do is love people as we strive to, “…love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18, ESV).   This is also known as ministry.  When we reach out in Christ’s love to other people we are ministering to them.  We exhibit this in lives of service through good stewardship of our time, talents, and treasures, “…to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12, ESV).
