Christ the King Sunday

A Great Thanksgiving for Christ the King Sunday

Liturgy

Again and again, through prophets and people,
through leaders in faith, and in the ordering of common life,
you have established your rule as Shepherd,
calling, caring, culling, and bidding us to follow.

A Service of Song and Worship for Christ the King Sunday

Liturgy

We observe Christ the King on the last Sunday after Pentecost, which is also the last Sunday of the Christian year and the Sunday before the new year begins with Advent. According to our Book of Worship (page 419), traditionally Christ the King is set aside as a celebration of the coming reign of Jesus Christ and the completion of creation.

Festival of Christ the King

Liturgy

The Festival of Christ the King "is both the Last Sunday After Pentecost and the last Sunday of the Christian Year. It is not so much a climax in itself, however, as it is a transitional Sunday leading directly to Advent, the Christmas cycle, and the new Christian Year. People are already thinking about Christmas, and the observance of Christ the King can help them prepare by stressing the continuity between the celebration of kingship, or sovereignty, of Christ and the expectation of Christ’s coming again in sovereign glory which opens the Advent Season.
