Sovereign King’s Biggest Day – December 5th, 2010

On December 5th, Sovereign King Church is going to celebrate perhaps its most significant day since her inception.  Let me tell you about it, and my hope is that you can join us for any or all of events of that day.

To begin, December 5th marks the beginning of our celebration of Advent.  It will be the kickoff of our “Voices Carry” series that will explore 5 voices that spoke of Jesus’ birth in the scriptures.  Our Christmas services are always joyous and celebratory, and we would love for you to join us.  We know that many of you have commitments to your own church, but if you could join us at all in December, we would love to have you as our guest.  Services begin at 10:30pm.

Following the service, we will have about 5 minutes of business to take care of as we officially vote in our very first class of Ruling Elders.  These men were nominated from among the congregation, trained for 9 months and passed both written and oral exams.

Then, we are going to have a massive lunch at our church space.  Our after church meals are always a great time to catch up and have fun, and it will be the first that we have had in our new worship space.

Following the meal at 2:30pm, we will be joined by members of other PCA churches as we will have an official ordination service for these new elders.  They will be prayed for, charged, encouraged, and set apart for ministry in the church.  This will also mark the moment where our church moves on from being a church plant to being what we call a particular church (one with its own, fully established Biblical church government).

But what if you can only come for the ordination service?  Won’t you miss some great food?  Nope, because after the service, we are going to have a dessert bar so all of our friends from churches across the state can celebrate with us.

It is going to be an amazing day, and we would love for you to join us for any or all of the events on December 5th.  If you have any questions, contact Gordon Duncan at jgordonduncan@yahoo.com or call at 919-412-8161.  Also, if you would like to help with food, contact Kristine Stead at kstead@nc.rr.com.
