“Avoid favoritism for the gospel levels everything.” This was the point from last Sunday’s sermon. If we’re honest, we all struggle with favoritism. Whether in a job interview or choosing teams on the playground, we are naturally drawn to people who look the part. We judge based on appearance, whereas God judges based on the heart. This is because the gospel levels the playing field. As sinners saved by grace, we have nothing over and above one another. We are beggars showing other beggars where to find bread. The church should be a place where all of God’s people fit in. Let’s strive to be a church which preaches Jesus as the great leveler.

KCC 2021 Summer Calendar


Almost a year ago, we decided to make a new KCC t-shirt. Well, after some complications, we finally got one made. Now it’s available. If you originally signed up for a t-shirt, we have them reserved for you. But we also have extras. So if you would like a KCC t-shirt, we have them available for $10 @ the Commons.


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.
