Weekly Fighter Verse

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

Answer*: Idolatry is trusting in created things rather than the Creator for our hope and happiness, significance and security.

Next Sunday's Sermon Text

Exodus 20:4-6 (ESV)

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Toward the end of July, a group of KCC youth and leaders will be serving the local church in Patillas, Puerto Rico for one week through an organization called Praying Pelican Missions (PPM). PPM’s mission is to build up, encourage, and assist the local Church in serving and reaching their communities for Christ. They seek to establish genuine partnerships between churches local and abroad through short-term missions, church sponsorships, and disaster response.

Every Sunday | 9:00am

We are reviving a weekly prayer meeting at 9:00am in the Prayer Room/Mother’s Lounge. Everyone is invited to come seek the Lord together and pray for gospel renewal in our church, our community and around the world. Let’s outgrow this room in our devotion to prayer as a church.

“We need a work of the Holy Ghost of a supernatural kind, putting power into the preaching of the Word, inspiring all believers with heavenly energy, and solemnly affecting the hearts of the careless so that they may turn to God and live.” -C. H. Spurgeon, Only a Prayer Meeting.
