Announcements-May 29-June 4

Worship

  • Building Closure-The building will be closed on Monday, May 30 in honor of Memorial Day.
  • The Seven Signs-As St. John recounts the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus in his Gospel, he gives us a summary in John 20:30-31: “Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” Matthew, Mark, and Luke talk about the “miracles” Jesus performed.  But John intentionally uses the word “signs” and he structures his Gospel around seven signs that point us to something greater and reveal to us just who Jesus is.  We invite you to read (and reread) the Gospel of John as you join us for our 8-week teaching series: The Seven Signs.

Special Events

  • Breath: The Life God in Us-Centered on DVD-based teaching from Beth Moore, this six-session study examines the person, the work and the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The title is drawn from the words of John 20:22, which records that Jesus “breathed on them and said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit.’” There’s no homework for this study, but the listening guide and workbook are recommended to follow along. This is an excellent opportunity for women to study God’s Word and grow in their relationship with Him. Cost of the study is $12 if you order through King of Kings. Register online at kingofkingsomaha.org/register. Questions? Email Terri at terri@kingofkingsomaha.org.
