On this confirmation day, Pastor's sermon, "Set Apart Christ as Lord in Your Heart" is based on 1 Peter 3:15-22.

The risen Christ is the way, the truth and the life. Salvation in Christ alone is exclusive--there is only one Savior we're ever going to have, but salvation in Christ alone is the cornerstone on which God builds us into His temple of living stones. Pastor's sermon, "We Are God's House of Living Stones" is based on 1 Peter 2:4-10. Feel free to download a copy of the service folder from our website at www.christthekinggb.org/sunday-bulletins.

Certainly, the image of Jesus as Shepherd and His people as His sheep is familiar to many. Yet how often do we stop to appreciate the love of our Good Shepherd? Today we are reminded that what makes true shepherds in God’s kingdom are their relationship to Christ, the Good Shepherd, who is the only gate for the sheep. We follow in His footsteps, even if it means suffering for doing good. Pastor's sermon, "Follow in Your Shepherd's Footsteps" is based on 1 Peter 2:19-25.

Hope is lost when we let our wants or expectations get in the way of hearing God's clear Word. God restores our hope by raising Jesus from the dead and pointing us back to His promises. Pastor's sermon, "Jesus Lives to Restore Our Hope" is based on 1 Peter 1:17-21.

As our attention turns again to the upper room, Thomas' doubts about the risen Lord bring to mind our own fears and doubts. Yet in the risen Jesus we have a Savior who strengthens our faith by giving us the proof and peace we need in His Word and sacraments. As Peter puts it, we have been born again into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Pastor's sermon, "Praise God for Our Living Hope in Christ" is based on 1 Peter 1:3-9. God bless your worship!
