On Sunday, we continued our worship series about following Christ - The Narrow Door. Jesus helps us to to see that following him is like traveling down a difficult, narrow path through a narrow door. Yet in the end, he promises eternal blessing to all who follow him. The following devotion is adapted from Sunday's sermon on Luke 14:1,7-14 - Humility First. For the full text of the sermon, click on the title!

New Sunday School Year Starts This Sunday! – This Sunday, September 8 @ 9 am we will kick off the 2019-20 Sunday School year here at King of Kings!
True and Reasonable – How do I respond when people reject or object to the Bible or Jesus or my Christian faith? In a world growing increasingly hostile to Biblical Christianity, we face objections to what and in whom we believe. So what can we do? Starting this Sunday, September 8 @ 9 am in Adult Bible Study, we will see that we have a “toolbox” that can help us face objections to our faith, including the best tool of all—the Word of God. All adults are encouraged to attend!
Joint Board Pre-Call Meeting #2 – The Church Council, Board of Youth Discipleship, and Board of Elders will meet in the conference room next Tuesday, September 9 @ 6 pm to discuss the Pre-Call surveys re: calling our next Principal/Grades 6-8 Teacher. Please remember to fill out your surveys and bring them to the meeting! If you will not be able to attend, please complete the survey and get it to Pastor!
Digging Deeper – Our Wednesday AM Bible studies continue next Wednesday, September 11 @ 10:30 am in the conference room with a study of Martin Luther’s Large Catechism. If you would be interested in purchasing a copy of Luther's Large Catechism, please reply to this e-mail or contact Pastor!
Donations for Pets - Karen Hoefler is collecting pet food and toys for the pets in the Orange County Animal Shelter. She is doing this for her 4H community service project and will collect until Friday, September 27. Please donate only unopened pet food and new unused toys. Collection boxes are located in the entryway!
2018-19 Annual Reports are available by the main bulletin board in the entryway. Pick up a copy to find out how the Lord has challenged and blessed us in the past year, while looking ahead to what we hope to accomplish with his help in 2019-20!
Welcome Home Sunday - October 20 - Make sure to leave this Sunday open on your calendar! Don't schedule any appointments. Don't plan any vacations for that Sunday. Instead, plan to be here at King of Kings on Sunday, October 20! Watch for more about what's in store when we welcome our entire King of Kings family home on Sunday, October 20!
Growing in Hope – Why does it matter that Jesus is my Savior? Does the Bible really apply to my life? Where can I get more of what I heard today? How can I join King of Kings? We are planning to begin a new session of our Bible Information Class soon to provide answers to those questions and many more. If you are interested in taking part in this course, please reply to this e-mail or contact Pastor!
Every Member Visits - Pastor Gumm is visiting all of our members—and there are King of Kings families and individuals who still need to schedule visits! Please be sure to reply to this e-mail or contact Pastor to schedule your visit ASAP!
An Encouraging Word: Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers. (Psalm 1:1-3)
