Our next Christ the King "Book Club" will be Friday, Friday May 2,

2014 7:00, at the Garcia’s home. The Book Club is open to ALL Men & Women, so even if you’ve never participated before please come join us for FUN, food, fellowship, and a lively and inspirational discussion.

The book we will be discussing this time is "Same Kind of Different as Me" by Ron Hall. This is an uplifting and spiritual book that will be enjoyable to ALL.

The story begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana... and an East Texas honky-tonk... and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda... an upscale New York Gallery... a downtown dumpster... a Texas ranch.

Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, it also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love…

A little more about the book:

Ron Hall and Denver Moore became best friends through Ron's wife, Deborah. She was very connected with God and she was told to 'save'

Denver. Deborah started dying of cancer and Denver, in return, helped Deborah carry on the ministry she had started. There is a memorial that was made for Deborah when she passed, called the Deborah Hall Memorial.

The story, however, goes deeper into the developing personal friendship between two men of entirely different upbringing, and the struggle that is required to make and maintain such a friendship across a wide cultural canyon. The characters struggle with raw and honest emotions, real life situations, and set an example for those who want to be challenged to make a difference in their own lives and those around them. The story also reveals the true level of commitment required to be an effective leader in service to others.

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).
