Christ the King Sunday and Hanging of the Greens, Nov. 25

We will be celebrating Christ is King Sunday on Nov. 25 with a special worship service and hanging of the greens at noon.

We will decorate our church, sanctuary, welcome center and put up the outdoor Nativity scene. Many hands make the load light, and the fellowship is always great!

If you are available to decorate, please RSVP today:

The Festival of Christ the King is both the Last Sunday After Pentecost and the last Sunday of the Christian Year. It is not so much a climax in itself, however, as it is a transitional Sunday leading directly to Advent, the Christmas cycle, and the new Christian Year. 

Now that our thoughts are turning towards Christmas, observing Christ the King prepares us by stressing the continuity between the celebration of kingship, or sovereignty, of Christ and the expectation of Christ’s coming again in sovereign glory which opens the Advent Season. 

We have more than a baby Jesus at Christmas; we have a sovereign Christ. “Joy to the world! The Lord is come: Let earth receive her King.”
