Table Talks

Sign-ups open through June 4th

Table Talks are a time to meet in smaller groups, enjoy a meal, fellowship, and deepen our relationships with one another by meeting once a month during June, July & August. As a participant in Table Talks, you will be assigned to a small group that will meet with the same host family all three months. We hope this will create opportunities for deeper friendships and build a stronger church family as a whole. While we can’t accommodate everyone’s schedule, we hope you will make Table Talks a priority and modify your own schedule in order to attend.

New Song This Sunday

Lord From Sorrows Deep I Call

What can miserable Christians sing? This is the captivating title of an article written by Carl Trueman. In it he points out that our culture often emphasizes the positive elements of life. Many of our modern worship songs focus on the redeeming aspects of the Christian life, which is very good. But what about when times do not seem to get better? What if the thorn remains? What if the cloud doesn’t lift? What can miserable Christians sing? His solution: learn to lament. To lament is turning to God with your pain. It’s trusting God by running toward God in your suffering rather than running away from Him. It’s putting your hope in Him, even when everything seems hopeless.

As we launch into a sermon series in the book of Job, we are introducing a song of lament the next few weeks. Here are a sampling of the lyrics:

Lord, from sorrows deep I call

When my hope is shaken
Torn and ruined from the fall
Hear my desperation…

Why are you cast down, my soul?
Hope in Him who saves you
When the fires have all grown cold
Cause this heart to praise You…

Should my life be torn from me
Every worldly pleasure
When all I possess is grief
God, be then my treasure…

Oh, my soul, put your hope in God
My help, my rock, I will praise Him
Sing, oh, sing through the raging storm
You’re still my God, my salvation

New City Catechism: Question 20

Question: Who is the Redeemer?

Answer*The only Redeemer is the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, in whom God became man and bore the penalty for sin himself.

*Children’s answer is the bold text

Weekly Fighter Verse: Romans 12:20-21

To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Next Sunday’s Sermon Text: Job 2:11-3:26

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.
