All women of Mercy Hill are invited to come to our first Palm Sunday Mercy Hill Women’s Luncheon.  Lunch will be followed by a devotion led by Sara Bausch and Tara Raymo. Please see them, or The City for more information.

The Riot and the Dance Movie

Pastor Phil is inviting anyone who wishes to join him to see this movie called The Riot and the Dance. It is playing one night only (as part of Fathom Events) on Monday March 19, 2018, at 7:00pm. The movie attempts to show the beauty and chaos of God’s creation, and is an attempt to make an engaging and positive effort to tell a different story than that is normally told by those who hold to an evolutionary viewpoint.  Regardless of your views on creation, this could be a fun evening for a few families of the church — it appears that it would be kid-friendly as well. You can RSVP in The City here.

Confession of Faith…

Thy Kingdom come – By Pastor Mario Freitas

The prayer Thy Kingdom Come goes back to the original intention of God, since the book of Genesis, to establish His Kingdom on earth. The devil appears as an usurper in Eden and establishes the reign of sin. But God was never surprised: His plan was that His glorious Kingdom would be establish in the person of Jesus Christ. So, the content of the Old Testament basically carries the work of God to redeem His Kingdom, pointing at Jesus.

Jesus came in a context when the Jews expected a king, a physical ruler who would free them from the Roman dominion. Now His goal is to establish a Heavenly kingdom – The Kingdom of Heaven is “at hand” (Matthew 4:17) – which does not match the expectations of most people from his time. In fact, right before his ascension, the disciples themselves, even having experienced his death and resurrection, are still influenced by this necessity of their generation: “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” – they asked (Acts 1:6). But He was carrying another Kingdom. The heavenly Kingdom was started with Jesus and did not completely come through yet. And we are living between those lines.

To pray Thy Kingdom Come means to ask for Christ’s redemption and reign over those who had not yet submitted to Him. Also, it comes from hearts that are eager to see His perfect and complete dominion, in a time where all evil and all beings will submit. In the words of Albert Mohler, “The prayer Thy Kingdom Come means nothing more and nothing less than may Christ establish His kingdom soon”. Amen.
