Title: "The Threat of Tepid Christianity"
Revelation 3:14-22

Pastor Perry Kallis


Many of us are familiar with the painting by Warner Sallman entitled: “Christ at Heart’s Door”. It was painted in the 1940’s to reflect the verse in Revelation 3:20 where Jesus declares that He “...stands at the door and knocks.” It’s easy to forget that Jesus’ words of invitation were not primarily written to unbelievers, but rather to a self-sufficient church in Laodicea that had lost its passion and purpose for the Lordship of Christ. This last of the seven churches to receive a letter in Revelation will receive both the greatest threat as well as the greatest promise from our Risen Lord. The message for the church in Laodicea is likely the truth that most closely matches the need for application among churches in our current age of modern ministry.

Communion Sunday, September 6

This coming Sunday is the first Sunday of the month, and we are going to be serving communion at our outdoor 9am service. If you want to participate, you can pick up an individual pre-packaged communion container at one of the information tables.

If you are still not getting out for services, I have included at the end of my on-line sermon a videotaped communion time for you to follow at home.

We realize both of these occasions are somewhat different from our usual Worship Center pattern, but we are confident each of these opportunities will glorify God and help us remember the suffering and death of Christ as the foundation to our salvation.
