Is He Your King?

The recording of this service was corrupted. We believe it was the cable, which has been replaced, but Pastor Jim Warren, who preached the sermon gave Rich Swingle permission to summarize it, and that is what you will hear below. Pastor Jim preached on Matthew 1, Mark 8:27-30 and 1 John 1:5-2:2. Here is a list of the 354 prophecies fulfilled by Jesus Christ.



Pastor Linda Warren mentioned the song "What God Wants for Christmas," and she said she believes what God wants for Christmas from Westchester Chapel is for us to celebrate Christmas with The Kensington Assisted Living Facility in White Plains. Sia and Stephen T. will lead us and the residents in Christmas carols, and Rich Swingle will dramatize the Scriptures of the Christmas story. Hope you can join us Christmas Eve at 6pm. Paid parking is available at the Municipal lot behind the Kensington. We should be back to our cars by 8pm.
