Called to Unity

I. You can’t spell community without unity, 1 Cor 1:10 II. You can’t spell division without “I,” 1 Cor 1:11-13 III. The issues that divide us, 1 Cor 1:14-16 IV. The person who unites us, 1 Cor 1:17 “For [Paul] baptism comes after the hearing of the gospel, but it does so as the God-ordained mode of faith’s response to the gospel.” - Gordon Fee, The First Epistle to the Corinthians.

KCC Family Meeting – October 23rd

For a few weeks now, we’ve been celebrating our union with 2nd Baptist church. As such, there are many practical questions still to answer, namely “When are we moving to the 2nd Street building?” We are hosting a KCC Family Meeting on Sunday, October 23rd @ the 2nd Street/Florence Ave. buildings immediately following our worship gathering to discuss the future of the 2nd Street/Florence Ave. buildings. This will be an open Q & A forum and discussion, open to all who attend KCC. Pizza and childcare will be provided. Feel free to bring salads and desserts.

Baptism Sunday – October 30th

We believe baptism is a joyful response to the command of Christ that symbolizes our death to sin and resurrection to a new life. On October 30th, we’re planning to host baptisms right after our worship gathering in the YMCA pool. If you’ve never been baptized as a believer or you would like to explore being baptized, please click the button below and one of the KCC Pastors will contact you.

QUESTIONWhat is the Lord’s Prayer?

ANSWER*: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

*Children’s answer is the bold text



Isaiah 53:4-5

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.

NEXT WEEK’S SERMON TEXT: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31

KCC T-SHIRTS and Water Bottles

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.
