BAPTISM SUNDAY
October 30th @ the YMCA

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. Plan to stay and join us after the worship gathering!

MEMBERSHIP MATTERS
November 6th & 20th @ 2nd St. Building | 1:30-3:30PM

We believe that the church is the family of God on the mission of God. We love one another as brothers and sisters. Yet we are also missionaries who are teaming up to advance God’s kingdom. We believe this is best lived out in the context of covenant membership in a local church.

In November, we will be hosting a Membership Matters class for two Sunday afternoons, November 6th & 20th, from 1:30-3:30pm at the 2nd Street building (1945 E. 2nd St.). This is a time for people to explore what we believe and why we believe it. You will be on your own for lunch, but we will have light snacks for the meeting. Childcare can be arranged if needed. Just let us know at least a week beforehand. If you can only make one session, you can still pursue membership. You can makeup the session by listening to the Membership Matters podcast and then we will follow up with you. Please let us know if you are planning to attend by clicking on the corresponding button below.

NEW CITY CATECHISM: Question 43

QUESTION: What are the sacraments or ordinances?

ANSWER*: The sacraments or ordinances given by God and instituted by Christ, namely baptism and the Lord’s Supper, are visible signs and seals that we are bound together as a community of faith by his death and resurrection. By our use of them the Holy Spirit more fully declares and seals the promises of the gospel to us.

*Children’s answer is the bold text

OLD STORY NEW FAMILY DEVOTIONAL: 66

WEEKLY FIGHTER VERSE: 1 Peter 2:24

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

NEXT SUNDAY’S SERMON TEXT: 1 Corinthians 2:6-16

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 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.

Congratulations to Matthew Parks and Marilyn Smith
for being certified through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC)!

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.

PRAYER REMINDER:

For praying for the McMaster family, and specifically David Morton (Roxy’s son, Kelly’s brother). He was recently transferred to a short term intensive rehabilitation hospital in Toledo. The results have been very positive so far (praise the Lord!), but there is still a long road to recovery. Keep praying for a full recovery, and, more specifically, that the next TBI hospital placement would happen quickly that it would be close enough for the needed family involvement. Additionally, pray for the many of the associated logistics (i.e. health insurance, long term care, and financial issues) that the McMaster family is spear heading. Pray that these issues would resolve in a timely fashion and that the McMaster family would have the strength, wisdom and endurance needed.

COMPASSION FUND
