Dedication and Confirmation

On Sunday, November 15, 2015, at 10:00 AM Light of Christ Anglican Church dedicated its new church building at 9500 Northumberland Highway in Heathsville, Virginia.

The Rt. Rev. John A. M. Guernsey, Bishop of the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic, led a Service of Dedication with the following words:

Through the ages, Almighty God has moved his people to build houses of prayer and praise, and to set apart places for the ministry of his holy Word and Sacraments. With gratitude for the building of Light of Christ Anglican Church, we are now gathered to dedicate and consecrate it in God’s Name.

Peace be to this house, and to all
who enter here.

Sermon: What Matters Most
The Rt. Rev. John A.M. Guernsey

"Never forget that the true glory of the
Light of Christ Anglican Church is found
in the presence of Jesus"

42. What do you mean when you call God “Father?”
Answer here
(or come back next week)

41. Why do you call the first of the three divine Persons “Father?”

Our Lord Jesus called God “Father” and taught his disciples to do the same, and St. Paul teaches that God adopts believers as his children and heirs in Christ, sending his Holy Spirit into our hearts crying “Abba, Father.” (Matthew 6:9; Romans 8:15-17; Galatians 4:4-7)
