events & gatherings
We gather weekly on Shabbat mornings to worship the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob in and through His Son Yeshua by the power of the Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit). All people are welcome to join in our Shabbat Service. Our main goal is to glorify the Lord when we gather, to love Him with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength. We love the Presence of God that dwells with us in our gatherings. God is the most Treasured Inhabitant in our Community. It is important to know that Kingdom Living Messianic Congregation is a relational congregation that is interconnected in small groups throughout Kansas City. We believe one of the reasons God's presence is so powerful with us when we gather together on Shabbat is because we are pursuing growing faithful relationships through small groups that function as outpost for the Kingdom of God.
Our service begins at 10 am and goes until about 12:15 pm. Our worship services include biblically based traditional Jewish liturgy, intercessory prayer, and scripture readings based on the Torah, the Prophets, and the New Covenant writings, followed by a brief exposition. We then transition to announcements to keep the community in the loop of what is going on, then all the men surround the congregation as a person prays a blessing over the women & children. Then at this point, the kids five and under are dismissed to their classes. This is followed by a time of liturgy flowing into musically accompanied Holy Spirit led praise & worship which includes planned songs and may also include prophetic singing. After this, the kids 5 and over are dismissed to their classes. We complete our service with 30-40 minute biblically based, edifying teaching and a benediction. We also have post-service prayer ministry for encouragement and healing. Our congregation is a Holy Spirit-oriented congregation so while we have a planned service, our goal is always to follow the Lord wherever He leads us and therefore He is always free to change the service if He chooses.
2020 Biblical Festivals
Kingdom Living celebrates the traditional Jewish festivals found in the Hebrew Scriptures. Seven of these (called God's Appointed Times) were commanded by God in Leviticus 23 to be observed by the Children of Israel. However, we do not celebrate them out of obligation, but from a place of joy and blessing. Other festivals listed here were not commanded by God (such as Hanukkah and Purim) but were celebrated during the time of Yeshua. All Jewish festivals begin and end at sunset of the dates listed.
