Current KCC Volunteer Needs
We need two more people to be on the schedule (once a month) for monitoring the King’s Kids Checkin station.
We are in need of a few tech savvy people to help run the Youtube/Facebook Livestream during Sunday morning gatherings.
SUNDAY MORNING HOSPITALITY (COFFEE)
Do you like coffee? We are trying to start a rotation of people to arrive a little early and make it on Sunday mornings.
Do You Enjoy Writing Cards of Encouragement? If so, we’d love to have you join our Card Care Team. This team is designed to send notes of encouragement to those who are hurting/grieving/recovering/or just need a cheerful word.
KCC Building Project
BUILDING RENOVATION WORK DAY @ FLORENCE AVE.
January 28th | 9:00AM – Noon
We’re hosting work days to assist with the ongoing renovation projects at the Florence Ave. building. If you are able and willing to help, please let us know or just show up.
KCC BUILDING RENOVATION UPDATES
2nd St. and Florence Ave. Locations
As we continue to work on the building renovations, we’ll try to keep you updated through the LOOP. We try to post pictures or other updates as needed so that we can all see the progress as well as the work that still needs to be completed.
The Building Task Force works hard hashing out the best way forward with building renovation projects. (Not all are pictured). The rest of the church thanks you for your labor of love and using your gifts to serve us.
Ned City Catechism: Question 4
Question: How and why did God create us?
Answer*: God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.
*Children’s answer is the bold text
Weekly Fighter Verse: Philippians 3:9
And be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith.
Next Sunday’s Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
We Would Love to Pray for You
We would love to pray for you! Some people think that only major crises of life are worth praying for, but the truth is that everyone needs prayer for something. James 4:2 says that we do not have because we do not ask, and when we do we often have false or impure motives. So the first step is to ask. So please come and let us pray for you in person at our Sunday worship gathering. Or, if you would like prayer now, just click the button below and fill out the form and we will pray for you.
Biblical Counseling at KCC
Life is full of things to be discouraged about, and it can be overwhelming. We believe that Jesus offers real help, hope, and healing in the difficulties of life. We believe that the power of God’s Word and Spirit offers hope of life change from the inside out. So we offer biblical counseling to those needing the comfort and wisdom of Scripture. While we believe God can work through various methods of counseling, our lead counselors are certified through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC). We also have pastors and other counselors who have received training from Faith Biblical Counseling, and are able and willing to counsel according to the Scriptures.
If you would like to explore meeting with one of our counselors, please fill out the contact form by clicking on the button below and we will try to match you with someone.
