The final Sunday in 2017 is a 53rd Sunday. That Sunday, December 31st, the entire offering will be given to the  missions and missionaries that KCC supports on a regular basis!

Manistee Church update

We (Mikie & I) are approaching the end of our first “quarter” of ministry in Manistee. The first three months have been slow but encouraging. The summer months up here are for tourism, reunions and working around the clock if your job has to do with tourism. The 9 “members” of the church that were here when we came are still with us. We have had one baptism, another one tomorrow night and another deciding. The people are cooperating. We…

There’s No Place Like Home

By Sara Blasko, Children’s Ministry Director We’ve heard it in the Wizard of Oz, and we’ve no doubt experienced it ourselves, there is really truly no place like home. Growing up I would go through my school days eagerly anticipating running off the bus and into my mothers arms. It’s funny how much “home” means MOM. Mom is a comfort, a solace, a safe place. When I was sick, all my mom had to do was put her hand on…
