Kid's Corner

This week marks the 9th year that KCC has met publicly for worship. What a privilege it is to be a part of what God is doing in Defiance and beyond! What will KCC be like in 2023? Lord-willing, we will continue to work towards expanding His kingdom. But will we be doing so with the people of 2nd Baptist or not? That will be determined this Sunday. Second Baptist have already voted to join together with KCC, and it passed. This Sunday, the covenant members of KCC will also vote on whether or not to join with 2nd Baptist as one congregation. Come what may, to God be the glory!

Covenant Members’ Meeting
Sunday, September 25th

Kid's Corner

For nearly a year now, we have been prayerfully considering joining together with 2nd Baptist Church. The members of Kings Cross Church will be coming together on September 25th after the worship gathering to vote on whether or not to join with 2nd Baptist. A zoom option will be available (we will text it out beforehand). We will also have childcare and light snacks.

This will be a historic vote for the life of our church, so please prioritize being present. However, if a member is not going to be able to attend but wants to cast a vote, we do have a unique option for voting beforehand. Since the proposal has already been sent out to the members, you can vote on whether you accept or reject the proposal to merge with 2nd Baptist by emailing Matt Parks ( no later than this Saturday evening (September 24th). Otherwise, you’ll have to attend in person or on Zoom.

Fall Equipping Classes
Wednesdays through November 16th @ 2nd Baptist Building

Kid's Corner

We have officially launched Fall 2022 Equipping Classes. Even if you missed the first week, you are still welcome to join us. We are planning to meet every Wednesday evening from 6-8pm until Nov 16. There will be a group meal from 6-7pm followed by classes for all ages from 7-8pm, including nursery. If you’re not able to make it on Wednesday evenings but want to still be involved, there is an in-home Gospel Life Group on Sunday evenings that goes through the same study as the Wednesday adult study. Contact Garrett Atkins for more info about the Sunday GLG.

Discipleship Groups

Kid's Corner

DGs are groups of 2-4 people of the same gender who meet regularly (usually weekly or bi-weekly) to either discover Christ or grow in Christ. We read the Scriptures and solid Bible-saturated books, pray, and share in the joys and struggles of following Jesus together. If you are interested in being a part of an informal DG, you can sign up online.

QUESTION: What is prayer?

ANSWER*: Prayer is pouring out our hearts to God in praise, petition, confession of sin, and thanksgiving.

*Children’s answer is the bold text



He who is often reproved, yet stiffens his neck, will suddenly be broken beyond healing. / A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.

YOUTH DISCIPLESHIP: Thursdays @ 6:30pm


KCC T-SHIRTS and Water Bottles

We still have KCC t-shirts available in several sizes for $10. There are also some KCC water bottles for $5. These can be purchased at the YMCA on Sunday mornings.


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 counselor is 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.


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.
