Galeton Presbyterian Church News

Galeton Presbyterian Church News, 11-25-12
 by Martha Pennell, mpennell@northernpotterssd.org

Christ the King Sunday was celebrated on 11-25-12, when Christ is recognized and worshiped as King of heaven and earth. Sue Ann Smith was lay leader. Marge Rawson and Julie Jeffries were ushers. The sacrament of Holy Communion was celebrated; Marian Miller and Marge Rawson were servers. Prayer person for the week is Richard Menken. 

The gospel of John: 33-37, during which Pilot asked Jesus if he were King, was the basis for Pastor Karl’s sermon. In 1974, a boxing event of Muhammad Ali was held in Zaire, over a dungeon where political prisoners were held. Many were executed prior to the fight, during which the smell of death was sensed. Death hung in the air when Pilot asked Jesus if he were King. It started with a beating and ended with crucifixion, a way to get rid of criminals. Pastor Karl explained that Jesus did not fight back. He was not much of a King, but he is ours. He was not much of a monarch, buried by a handful of frightened disciples who believed they would be next if they showed their faces. His glory came from his father. He is here for our sake and the sake of creation. His resurrection is for us, too. His grave is not is final resting place. 

Pastor Karl stated that Jesus’ resurrection promises we will be raised up from our tombs. What Jesus Christ gives us does not end in death. God’s glory is all around us, although we do not always see it. He is resurrected and in life Christ abides with us. 

Tony and Jill Adami have once again placed a beautiful, natural Christmas tree in the sanctuary. The congregation is invited to decorate the tree and the sanctuary on Thursday, November 29, 2012, at 6:30pm. Choir rehearsal will be held in the Christian Education building on Saturday, December 1, 2012, at 10:15am. Advent season begins on December 2, 2012.
