Are you coming to the King’s Feast? This Sunday evening we are going to be looking at the Parable of the Wedding Feast, a parable of Jesus…with a twist.

Today will be my last sermon dealing with 2 Peter 3:18. Our focus will be on 2 things: We are to grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. In answer to the question: how are we to do that, what is a good way to grow, we must also realize that
