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.
If you would like to participate in a sermon-based group, sign-up below.
