Today marks the beginning of the high point of the Christian church year. On Good Friday, Jesus offered up his life for the sins of the world. On this solemn day, we gather in sacred worship.
King of Kings offers two Good Friday services: 1:00 pm & 7:00 pm. The 1:00 pm service involves our kids and coincides with Jesus’ time on the cross. The 7:00 pm service is our typical evening service time. At King of Kings, we follow a Tenebrae outline, which means that this very moving service ends in darkness and in silence.
Then, on Sunday morning, we reconvene to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. We have an Easter sunrise service at 7:00 am and an Easter festival service at 10:00 am. Come, and worship our risen Lord!
In between those services, from 8:00 to 9:30, we have an Easter breakfast in our Family Life Center. All are invited. Around 9:00 am there will be an Easter egg hunt for the children in attendance. (Please bring your own Easter basket.)
Wednesday, we will have a very special worship service conducted completely in German by our German instructor, Mr. Phil Warnecke. If you know anyone who speaks German, please invite them to this 7 pm service. (You may come, too!)
Looking ahead, April 30 will be our last Sunday Funday. It will be a special water day. It will also be a time to invite parents with kids who might be interested in our school.
Finally, the South Atlantic District’s summer youth camps deadlines are quickly approaching, April 30. The Amazing Race Teen Challenge is June 27-30 ($355/) in Kissimmee, FL and includes the Race at Epcot. (Amazing Race All Forms) Camp South—Soul Survivor is July 24-28 ($285/) in Covington, GA and includes, bowling, low ropes and the mudder course.

Since we gather for worship today, there is no devotion. Just these verses:
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” (Galatians 2:20-21)
