Why does the church look and sound more like the world?

As part of our Tough Questions sermon series, we received this question: Question 1: Why does the church look and sound more like the world (it’s music, dress, message, and results)? I don’t’ think this is so much a question as a statement: The church looks and sounds more like the world! What’s going on?  If we were in a courtroom, the lawyer would object saying, that you are leading the witness! It’s like the question, “So how long have…

Bus Ministry Rolls into KCC

The Kalkaska Church of Christ recently purchased a pre-owned 21-passenger Ford bus for ministry use!

Frozen Pipes

Frozen Pipes By Sara Blasko, Children’s Ministry Director With the cold weather in the winter months, comes many challenges for us Northern Michigan dwellers. Icy roads, lack of sunshine and freezing temperatures. One of the side effects of these freezing temperatures is frozen pipes. Pipes freeze when the temperature is too cold, and if you’ve ever had it happen to you, you know the signs. You turn on your faucet expecting to see the water pour out as usual, and…

Flannel Shirt Sunday

While it’s cold outside and it’s time for the church’s annual meeting (I can hear your groans), we’ve decided to officially declare Sunday, January 21st at Flannel Shirt Sunday! What does that mean? Simply this. Find a new, old, comfortable flannel shirt and wear it to church! It’s just for fun. No big purpose behind it.

New Year’s Eve Lock-in

The High School / Middle School New Year’s Eve Lock-in is history now! About 30 young people and a dozen very committed adults spent the entire night at the church building celebrating the coming of 2018! There were games, prizes, and lots of wonderful food all night long! Thanks to everyone who made this event possible!
