As Christians, we should always be growing. This involves creating and maintaining good and godly habits. Every couple of months we are going to start highlighting and emphasizing different spiritual practices to help us follow Jesus. Last week’s sermon highlighted the importance of meditating on Scripture. Meditating goes beyond reading to digesting. It’s not merely skimming the surface but plumbing the depths, like scuba diving as opposed to riding a boat across the top of the water. Just like any habit, sometimes it’s difficult just to get started. So here’s some practical ways to meditate on Scripture.

Covenant Members’ Meeting
Sunday, May 29th

Kid's Corner

The members of Kings Cross Church will be meeting on May 29th after the worship gathering to introduce new members as well as give an update on the possibility of joining together with 2nd Baptist. A zoom option will be available (we will text it out beforehand). We will also have childcare and light snacks.

KCC Guys’ Campout
June 3rd-4th

Kid's Corner

Fellowship is an important aspect of being family. So we are calling all the guys, and their sons, to come out to Matt Woodcox’s home, near Antwerp, where we will enjoy a bonfire, activities, food, and fellowship. Those who are willing to camp out in tents overnight, Saturday morning will be a breakfast and canoeing. But you can just come for Friday evening if you don’t want to camp out overnight. Bring outdoor camping, fishing, and/or canoeing gear. Stay informed by texting @kccguys to 81010. We will be sending out updates on food and other logistics. Or fill out this contact form.  

Summer Food Program

Kid's Corner

During the summer months, we are helping serve lunch to children in need once a week at Latty Grove Park from 12-12:30pm. We do not have to prepare the meals. We simply come and serve. It takes less than an hour, so you could easily do it on your lunch break if you work in Defiance. Please contact Cassie Verhoff if you are able to help.

Miracle Camp

Kid's Corner

Miracle Camp is a great place for families or kids to receive teaching from Scriptures while meeting others and having fun. There are activities all summer for kids of all ages as well as families. Still unsure? You can read this article for a few reasons to send your kid to camp this summer or you can go to for more information. If your interested, you can also contact Joshua Wagner for a scholarship coupon.

Community Event

Kid's Corner


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.
