An Invitation from Pastor Rich

Hey King of Glory Friends, we are in the midst of exciting times at King of Glory.  We are about to kick off a new season of small groups along with kids and student programming re-starting in the coming month.  We are also in the process of getting the Lumberyard transformed into a mission post.  During the next couple of months I am also hopeful that we will take steps as a congregation to sharpen our focus on becoming a people group on mission with Jesus. The transformation of the Lumberyard is only a piece of the overall picture.  We need some transformation ourselves as well. 

I am going to be leading a book study over the next couple months and want to invite you to join me.  This book study will help you understand where I am hoping we go as a congregation and where I will be focusing my leadership energies. This book is a tool that we are using to help us during this transformational time.  We will always keep God's Word at the forefront and this book is helping us understand the mission of the church as given in the Bible.  

Please feel free to pick up a copy of the book a the welcome table on Sunday mornings or order one from Amazon.  CLICK HERE to order book from Amazon. 

A reading schedule and other information regarding this process of transformation will be released in the coming weeks. Above all, please be in prayer during this season of transformation.  Pray for God to break our hearts for the things that break His heart and to equip us to be His people here in Sioux Falls, SD.  

Press On, 
Pastor Rich
