NOT MY KING
If Jesus is my King, then ______________ isn't.
Sometimes we call Jesus King, but then we allow other things to rule our lives, including destructive emotions. But if Jesus is truly our King, then fear isn't; if Jesus is our King, then anger, and pride, insecurity, and greed aren't. "Not My King" is a seven-week sermon and small group series designed to help people surrender everything to the One who can best rule our hearts.

We encourage you to utilize these resources for our current sermon series, "Not My King." The content is designed to help you grow in community and individually, and also to share with others who might benefit from them.

Discussion Guides for small groups are updated by Saturday morning each week and coincide with the sermon for that week.
Listen to some of the worship songs that we sing on Sundays from our Spotify playlist. It's a great way to engage in worship while you drive, do chores, exercise, and more, and it's also a way to fill your home with truth and peace and joy.
