Super Bowl Sunday

A number of “churches” are changing their services for Super Bowl Sunday. You may be wondering what we will and will not be doing on this day. We will be coming together to worship God at our normal times of services: 9:30 AM Bible Class, 10:30 AM Worship Service, and 6 PM Worship Service. During this time we will be studying from the word of God, the Bible. Likewise, the sermons will be centered on examining the will of God and how it relates to us today. We will sing a number of spiritual songs and be lead by men of the congregation in prayer. Since this is the first day of the week, we will remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross by observing the Supper He instituted in Matthew 26.26-29. The Christians came together on the first day of the week in Acts 20.7 and we follow this approved apostolic example today. As Christians, we are told to give as we have been prospered and this we will do. The above things we do every Sunday, because each Sunday is the Lord’s Day.

We will not be doing some things that others may be doing this Sunday. We will not cancel our services so as to make it easier for people to see the ballgame. Serving the Lord is more important than any ballgame, and yes that includes the Super Bowl. We will not have a giant flat screen TV brought into the building and have a Super Bowl Party. Jesus did not die so we can enjoy a ballgame or eat together. He died for our sins; “For this the blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26.28). His kingdom is spiritual in nature and not physical. “For the kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14.17). Neither will we be having an abbreviated service or change our time of services for this one Sunday. While the time of services are a matter of convenience and judgment, we realize changing our time of services for this one Sunday will say more about our lack of commitment to God than our desire to worship Him. Neither do we change our times for Holidays or other social events.

Christians are to be more interested in their soul, the souls of others, and serving God than a ballgame. We hope to see you back here tonight. – Dennis Tucker
