One of the most frequent commands in Scripture is some variation of “Do not fear.” This was the topic from last Sunday’s sermon. And we are given the reason why in Luke 12:32, “Fear not, little flock, for it is your father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” We not only serve an all-powerful God but an all-good, all-loving God. That’s why we shouldn’t fear. What ever happens to us is from a good and loving Father.

Back to Meeting In-Person this Sunday – Nov 21

The good news is that King’s Cross Church is back to meeting in person this Sunday, November 21 at the Defiance YMCA at 10am.  Thankfully, we have not heard of any additional COVID cases in our church community. Some of those who have had COVID will be out of quarantine.

Unfortunately, we will not be offering nursery and King’s Kids ministry this Sunday. If you’re able to help a family who has young children who would normally be in children’s ministry, perhaps reach out to them and offer to sit with them in the service. Little kids can get pretty wiggly. 

 

We ask that our church take precautions to prevent further spread and risk to the most vulnerable. If you are symptomatic of COVID, please consider staying home. If you’re not comfortable attending this Sunday that’s understandable. We’ll do our best to stream live on Facebook live: https://www.facebook.com/kingscrossdefiance.

Sermon Resource

In Sam’s sermon a couple weeks ago, Sam showed this picture of the spectrum of how we fear God. It comes from the book, “When People are Big and God is Small” by Ed Welch. It is a great illustration that helps us guard against a domesticated view of God while also balancing the Father’s love for His children.

Global Missions Questionnaire

Kid's Corner

King’s Cross has dedicated much giving and prayer to the missionaries God has put in our path. The KCC global missions team has been working diligently to make sure the whole congregation knows who we support as a body by having Missions Moments once a month during our gathering. Toward that end, we are sending out a questionnaire to gauge what kinds of initiatives would help us increasingly become globally-minded Christians. 

Missions Moment:
International Justice Mission

Kid's Corner
Every day, countless people are trafficked into slavery, as slave owners make a profit off their vulnerability. There are an estimated 40+ million people in slavery globally. More than ever before in history. Human trafficking alone generates $150B annually. It is also estimated that 1 in 4 victims of slavery is a child. IJM works with local justice officials, community partners, advocates and churches to end it for good. More specifically, they operate 21 Field Offices in 13 Countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to combat such crimes as violence against women and children, forced labor slavery, sex trafficking, and police abuse of power.

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.

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.
