“Everything that is not right in this world will be set right by the God who is right. If that sounds good to you, then you see the need for hell.” This was the main idea from Sam’s sermon last Sunday. One aspect to preaching through books for the Bible is that we come to passages that we cannot dismiss. We must reckon with difficult texts, and we have had our share in our series on Thessalonians. Though the subject of hell and God’s justice is difficult, the biblical writers speak of hell as good and righteous. One day God will put an end of sin once and for all, and hell is a vital part of that good and just judgment against wickedness. And for those who are in Christ, Jesus has already taken that just sentence in our place. So God’s justice is a double-edged sword: relief for the righteous and vengeance against the unrighteous (2 Thess. 1:7-8). This should all the more encourage and compel God’s children to proclaim the way of escape to unbelievers through trusting in Jesus alone for salvation.

SOUTHERN AFRICA CHURCH PLANTING INITIATIVE
Most every year KCC has given the Sunday offering on Thanksgiving weekend to our Compassion Fund, which goes toward helping people in our congregation and local community. That means our church budget is based on 51 weeks of giving, not 52. However, this year our Compassion Fund is well resourced. So we’re planning to give the Thanksgiving offering to a place of more extreme need…
PATH CENTER BLANKET DRIVE
As the weather gets colder, people need warmth. The PATH Center, our local homeless mission and shelter, is in need of blankets to give away to those in need. COVID-19 restrictions has made it more challenging to love our neighbors, but this is a practical way to do so. You can either donate NEW or CLEAN USED (please wash beforehand) blankets. You can drop blankets off at the Commons, take them directly to the PATH Center (though their open hours have changed due to COVID-19), or bring them to your GLG. Matt Parks or Robin Nofziger will collect them and deliver them to the PATH Center. For more information, send us a message.
