Trusting God is not just a one-time decision but a lifetime of daily decisions. This was the main idea of last Sunday’s sermon from Daniel 6. It is easy for believers to get discouraged in trusting God in the daily decisions of life, especially when we do not see the point or fruit of such decisions. But we are reminded that God is forming our character in these seemingly mundane times. In fact, it is often the character formed in trusting God on a daily basis that carries us along in times of distress, such as Daniel in the lion’s den. May you be reminded that trust in relationships is not merely built in a handful of big decisions but a thousand micro decisions. A marriage is built on daily interactions and children learn to trust parents or caregivers for day to day needs. Likewise, when we learn to trust that God is with us when times are uneventful, mundane, or common, we can be sure that he is with us in chaotic times.


Women’s Study starts back up soon. They will meet every Tuesday @ 7pm at the Commons and on Zoom for 6-7 weeks straight beginning in March. They will be doing a study on Hebrews 11 by Trillia Newbell called, “A Great Cloud of Witnesses.” Throughout Scripture we find countless stories of God’s faithfulness—we also find countless stories of the people who remained faithful to Him. To strengthen and deepen your own faith, enter the stories of God’s imperfect yet faithful people, such as Rahab, Enoch, Gideon, Sarah, and many more whose faiths withstood the tests of their days. For more information, contact Chelsea Andres.

MARCH 19 or 20


Every woman wants to feel fulfilled. Yet the things we pursue to give our lives meaning often leave us feeling empty instead. At re:garding HIM you will explore how living according to God‘s design gives us true and joyful purpose.

This year there are two identical options from which you can choose:

  • Friday, March 19, 7:00-9:30pm
  • Saturday, March 20, 9:00-11:30am

Both events are held at Christ The Word Church (3100 Murd Rd, Sylvania, OH). For more information about the event, contact Chelsea Andres or click on one of the buttons below.



King’s Cross Church is living proof of the beauty that comes from churches collaborating for the kingdom of God. We got our start from two churches partnering together to initiate a church plant in Defiance in 2012. Those churches are Archbold Evangelical Church and Crossroads Evangelical Church in Wauseon. Along with these two churches, KCC is part of a larger conference of churches called The Fellowship of Evangelical Churches as well as a member of the Acts 29 church planting network. By the grace of God and the generosity of his people, we have the joy of giving to various other gospel ministries locally and globally from our ministry budget. To this end, we created a Global and Local Missions Prayer Wall at our Office and Commons. The above picture shows all the missionaries that we currently support as a church. Our global missions partners are in red and our local missions partners are in yellow. So the next time you are at the Commons, remember to pray for these missionaries and their ministries. And we also want to thank Doug Smith for putting this map together for us.
