“The Paradoxical King for Hopeful Souls”

Read Mark 11:1–11

Discussion Questions

  • What kind of king did the people hope Jesus to be? What kind of king do you hope Jesus to be? And why?
  • What can you learn from the character of King Jesus shown in the passage?
  • When God gives you what you needed and not what you wanted, how do you respond?

Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It’s the next step after salvation through repentance and faith and is an important foundation for the Christian life. If you’ve put your trust in Jesus’ death and resurrection and are ready to go public with that confession—showing the world that you love, trust, and have put your hope in Christ—we invite you to be baptized here at Chelten on Sunday, April 23.

“Going under the water was a burial of your old life; coming up out of it was a resurrection, God raising you from the dead as he did Christ. When you were stuck in your old sin-dead life, you were incapable of responding to God. God brought you alive—right along with Christ! Think of it! All sins forgiven, the slate wiped clean, that old arrest warrant canceled and nailed to Christ’s cross.” Colossians 2:12-14 MSG

Please sign up at the Welcome Center by April 9.

It’s March, and you know what that means—besides one final snowy fast break/slam dunk combo from old man winter—the NCAA basketball tournament! But don’t watch alone. Join us for Men’s Madness and watch the first game of the final four with us. You say you’re not all that interested in basketball? No matter. WE GOT THE MEATS (lots of it), along with other BBQ related food, SMOKED from our local grilling experts!

During intermission, we’ll have a short message. See you there.
