Jesus came to seek and to save lost people, not people who think their religion has saved them. This was the main message from Chad’s sermon last Sunday. Jesus loves the unlovable and saves the unsavable. This is good news because that describes every human being, whether or not they acknowledge it. Salvation is about what God has done on our behalf in Christ. When you understand that religion doesn’t save but that Jesus saves, your life is changed forever. And you will response out of gratitude with the same radical intensity as Zacchaeus did.

Malawi Cyclone Relief

Kid's Corner

We are still taking up a collection for churches and pastors in Malawi who were affected by Cyclone Ana. KCC is giving $3,250 to cover the costs of rebuilding the church building and the three church planters’ houses. If you want to give to the Malawi Cyclone Relief for our partner churches, you can either write a check to KCC (mark it “Malawi Cyclone Relief”) or give online by clicking on the button below. Any money given toward this will replenish what KCC has committed to give. If there is giving above and beyond the $3250, then we will give that to Malawi Cyclone Relief. 

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.

QUESTION: What is the law of God stated in the Ten Commandments?

ANSWER*: You shall have no other gods before me.  You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below -you shall not bow down to them or worship them.  You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.  Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.  Honor your father and your mother.  You shall not murder.  You shall not commit adultery.  You shall not steal.  You shall not give false testimony.  You shall not covet.

*Children answer is the bold text



Psalm 103:11-14 – “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.

NEXT WEEK’S SERMON TEXT: Luke 19:28-20:18


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.
