Weekly Fighter Verse

Romans 5:18-19
[Therefore,] as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.

Next Sunday's Sermon Text

1 Corinthians 16 (ESV)

Now concerning the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do. On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that there will be no collecting when I come. And when I arrive, I will send those whom you accredit by letter to carry your gift to Jerusalem. If it seems advisable that I should go also, they will accompany me.

I will visit you after passing through Macedonia, for I intend to pass through Macedonia, and perhaps I will stay with you or even spend the winter, so that you may help me on my journey, wherever I go. For I do not want to see you now just in passing. I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits. But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost, for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

When Timothy comes, see that you put him at ease among you, for he is doing the work of the Lord, as I am. So let no one despise him. Help him on his way in peace, that he may return to me, for I am expecting him with the brothers.

Now concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to visit you with the other brothers, but it was not at all his will to come now. He will come when he has opportunity.

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.

Now I urge you, brothers—you know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the service of the saints— be subject to such as these, and to every fellow worker and laborer. I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have made up for your absence, for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. Give recognition to such people.

The churches of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Prisca, together with the church in their house, send you hearty greetings in the Lord. All the brothers send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.

I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. If anyone has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.

Giving Tuesday Africa

Tuesday, November 28th | 6:00pm @ Wauseon Crossroads Church Auditorium

The day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday followed by Cyber Monday – 2 days we spend a lot of money on ourselves and on those we love. But did you know that the day after Cyber Monday has been nationally identified as Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday was created to inspire generosity.

This year Fulton County has an opportunity to extend radical generosity to the people of Sub-Saharan Africa. Three nonprofit ministries will be highlighted: Village Project Africa Schools in Kenya, Home of Hope Orphanage in Zimbabwe and the ACPI throughout Southern Africa.

The 2 hour event includes a plated dinner, presentations from each of the three ministries and opportunities for you to give generously to extend grace and hope to thousands.

Community Events and Needs

Kid's Corner

Ravens Care

Check Out Their New Website

Ravens Care is a cooperative care ministry of the Defiance County churches, serving to assist people in emergency need situations in the county.

In 1993, three area pastors realized a need in the community to fill gaps of emergency assistance in which families in crisis were faced. Government programs were focused on general assistance and unable to see clients for everyday needs. The pastors gathered several other churches in the community and devised guidelines and regulations to assist these individuals and families.

KCC Loop Newsletter Prayer

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.
