“Hi, I’m Brian and I’m an alcoholic.”
“Oh, stink! I’m such a total loser!”
“Grandpa, watch me – I’m Spiderman!!“
That’s how some people will identify themselves. Maybe at a support group meeting. Maybe in frustration when everything seems to be going wrong. Maybe in the middle of an afternoon of play. They take up a role and own it. They fill in a place and connect with it.
Who are you? What might be three labels that you’d easily slap on yourself to help identify who/what you are?
Here at KCRC we are on a journey through the Bible book of Ephesians. And as we sift through the material, we’re wanting to pay special attention to certain phrases that might help identify who and what we are as people committed to Jesus.
The crazy part is that the very first bit of ID information – right in the very first two verses of the first chapter of Ephesians – identifies believers in Christ as “Saints.”
Wait!!! Aren’t saints like spiritual superheros? If so, that’s certainly not me. I sink when I try to walk on water (except in mid-February, if you know what I mean.)
Join us as we explore this strange teaching.
Go ahead and find a bible, either print version or online or app. Flip to Ephesians 1:1-2. Then download the podcast and the study guide and dig in.

As always, feel free to pass this stuff around. You can also find this, and other messages online at the KCRC website under the tab “Sermons And Stuff.”
We’d also love to have you join us live for worship.
We gather each Sunday at 10am.
Don’t worry about getting all gussied up. Just come as you are – we’re a church full of imperfect people.
And we’d be glad to have other imperfect people, like you, along for the ride!
