Thy Kingdom Come Begins Tomorrow! (Thurs, 5/21)

Thy Kingdom Come

“Thy Kingdom Come” is a global prayer movement that was started by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, in 2016. It is ten days of prayer between the Feast of the Ascension (May 21) and Pentecost (May 31) where we join with the global church in praying these two great prayers of the Church: thy kingdom come and come Holy Spirit. We pray in a dedicated way for the witness of the gospel to go forth into our world in this moment of our history and over the course of these ten days, we pray daily for five people to encounter Jesus and the love of God in a real and personal way.

As we participate in “Thy Kingdom Come,” we will offer three special elements:

1. A Ten Day Devotional Guide
2. Special worship services
3. Interactive Journaling via our Facebook Connect Group

The New Pastoral Team

The New Pastoral Team

Back at the annual meeting (what seems like a life time ago), our leadership announced we had a growing sense that, rather than calling another “Vicar” as a one-to-one replacement for Christine Lee, our future pastoral leadership would instead be shaped in order to help move us toward greater missional activity. Specifically, we decided to raise up multiple pastoral leaders to fill discrete roles both in ministry and in worship for our church. As we said then, we believed that a diverse leadership structure would allow us to be more agile, flexible, and adaptable as we embark on to the frontier of new missional work.

“Thy Kingdom Come” Devotional Booklet

Beloved in Christ, 

I (Nate) have always had one rule: do whatever Christine Lee says, whenever she says it, as soon as she says it. That’s not for no reason. Christine walks closely in step with the Holy Spirit, and has great spiritual intuition. So, when she approached me with the idea for this collaborative project for our two parishes, I was already predisposed to say: “yes.” Once I heard what the project was, it was that much more clear this was something God was calling us to do.

How They’re Doing.

This is Carlos. We’re used to seeing him passionately play the hand drums with our worship team during the 10am and 5pm worship services, now we see him at the front window of the church through these steel bars (dramatic…I know!). And yet, despite the circumstances and despite the distance between us, his smile is just as big as it ever was. The excitement and love shared between us is as real as it ever was. For weeks, we hadn’t seen Carlos. With cell phone numbers frequently changing or phones suddenly shut off, it’s hard for us to stay in touch with many of our friends during these times. For weeks, we were concerned about Carlos’ wellbeing–“where is he staying?” “is he sick?” “does he need anything?” “does he know we’re still here for him?”. This wasn’t just the case for Carlos, but for so many of our friends from CM programs and the 5pm service. While there are a handful of people we can call, most contact with our friends happens by simply being present at the church. During these strange times, even if they aren’t coming for crisis care or social services, our friends come by to say “hello” and tell us how they’re doing. Or, they send their friends with a message to give us…
