SPRING DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS Sign-ups

Kid's Corner

We want to strengthen our emphasis on Discipleship Groups (DGs) this spring by providing more structure. DGs are 24 people of the same gender who meet regularly to discover Christ or grow in Christ. From February 6th20th, you can signup to join a DG. Most DGs meet bimonthly and at various times of the day so everyone will be encouraged to join a DG that best fits their schedule. Space in each DG is limited and given on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, click on the button below and fill out the form.

Malawi Cyclone Relief

Kid's Corner

Recently, a cyclone (or tropical storm) called Ana hit southern African. The heavy rains, wind, and flooding has left thousands of people without basic shelter and food in some of the most poverty-stricken places in Madagascar, Malawi and Mozambique. Cyclone Ana also got worldwide attention in a Washington Post article. Among those affected are our ministry partners through the Southern Africa Church Planting Initiative (SACPI), including three church plants that KCC supports.

The people need to prepare their houses and the church building as well as emergency food relief. Since we support these church plants, we as a church are planning to help alleviate some of the suffering. KCC has committed to 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.

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.
