To Serve, or to Leave for Someone Else to Handle

When I was younger, I remember watching a show called “Dirty Jobs”. The host would venture into some of the dirtiest and disgusting jobs that keep America going. From sewers and fuel tanks, all the way to animal dung, host Mike Rowe got down and dirty with American workers in jobs that most of us probably never knew existed. The fact is, If it wasn’t for these jobs and the hardworking Americans that handle them, many of the luxuries we enjoy today wouldn’t How COVID has affected us

A Base for Truth

By Tim Severance, Associate Minister TRUTH has come under fire in the last decade. Culture has made TRUTH subjective, more of a feeling than a fact. “You have your TRUTH and I have my TRUTH,” they say. Or maybe you have heard, “That may be TRUE for you, but it’s not TRUE for me.” (To debate type of reasoning, check out “I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist” by Norman Geisler & Frank Turek) However, is this whittling How COVID has affected us

Philippians 4:6-7

Emotionally Challenged

By Darrell Boger, Worship Leader “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 October is a month of great, predictable change. Historically it has proven to be a difficult month for me.  The same challenges seem larger and more daunting and routine tasks become more How COVID has affected us
WASP

The Fruit of the Spirit

It is the first week of our after-school programs! I am sooo excited! After a shortened year two years ago and last year, it is a relief to be meeting again. I would love your prayers for these kids. They have been through a lot. For some of the younger kids, they haven’t ever had a normal year.  This year we will be learning the Fruit of the Spirit. I am so glad that this is what we will be How COVID has affected us

Family

Over the years I have had many different “families” whether it was youth group, a sports team, small group, or Church family.  Now, I can add one more family to my story, KCC!  Family is a vital part of being human.  It doesn’t matter if it’s biological, social, or ideological.  No matter how hard you may try, you can’t get away from families, even people who may distance themselves from their family will find a new one wherever they end up.  We naturally gravitate to How COVID has affected us
Watch what you say

“Say What?!”

When my mouth would get me in trouble, my mother used to say to me, “We don’t talk that way.” I had to remember that when I disagreed with someone, that I still represented Jesus Christ to the world. So I had to watch my words and my tone.  People know you are a follower of Jesus – and that fact alone should overshadow everything you say and do. It should guide your behavior and your speech.  So when you How COVID has affected us

What Do You Love About Being a Follower of Jesus?

This morning I received a call from a “Connecting Agent” out of Grand Rapids.  Lisa and I are selling our house and planning to move across town. (No, we aren’t leaving KCC. You can’t get rid of me that easily)  Anyway, as I was talking with this guy he was asking me about our house and what was so great about it.  And so I started to tell him.  We have a great neighborhood and a great yard and we How COVID has affected us
Covid Vaccine

A Covid Rant

An exert from Andy Bratton’s Morning Dive on Friday, August 20, 2021 I need to vent. I hope that’s okay. All right. And not everybody’s gonna agree with my vent. But I need to vent and here’s my venting.  Please don’t challenge my faith in Jesus because I got a vaccination or I wear a mask. Don’t do it. There is nothing spiritual about COVID, vaccines and masks, nothing. I looked, I can’t find anything in the Bible about pandemics. I How COVID has affected us
Discipleship

The Cost of Discipleship

For two more Sundays we are going to look at the topic of Discipleship and what it means to be a disciple and why we should follow Jesus.  I think one of the biggest misnomers in our world is that a relationship with Jesus stops at the baptismal or as some would say, “when someone bends the knee.”  And it is challenging to address because we point everyone to “making a decision.”  In making a decision we instruct people they How COVID has affected us
