King’s Cross is initiating a service opportunity during the pandemic designed to connect King’s Cross Church (KCC) volunteers with residents who would like snail mail at least once per month (either personal letters or less formal greeting cards).  This will be to provide fellowship to the lonely, maintain/deepen relationships with residents who already attend the KCC Glenn Park service, and to share the gospel where able (James 1:27).

Church Plant in Lyons, Kansas UPdate

In case you missed the video update last Sunday, here is an update from Caleb Barrows. He along with another pastor are planning to launch this church plant in the small town of Lyons, Kansas on Sunday, October 25th. Please pray for this FEC church plant as well as Caleb who was very instrumental in the early years of King’s Cross Church. And we know we influenced him as he named the church gathering after ours!
