When is Sunday Worship?
During the year our normal worship times are 8:30 am and 11:00 am with identical services led by a worship team using instruments and utilizing hymns and contemporary Christian music. Worship lasts about 75 minutes and consists of singing, prayer, giving, communion, and a message from the Bible. Come as you are! Everyone is welcome. A nursery is available during both services.
What Does this Church Believe?
The Kalkaska Church of Christ is a non-denominational (some would say un-denominational) independent church. We belong to the Restoration Movement that sought to bring all Christians back to simply living by the Bible and practicing beliefs as did the early church in the book of Acts.
We observe a weekly remembrance of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection as requested by Jesus himself (Luke 22:19) and practiced by the early church (Acts 20:7) – The Lord’s Supper or Communion. We neither invite nor prohibit anyone from taking the Lord’s Supper. All are welcome at His table.
We believe that one comes to salvation through faith in Jesus as the Christ of God, confession of Jesus as the Christ and Lord, repentance of one’s sins, and baptism through immersion for the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. For more detailed beliefs, visit our Beliefs and Core Values page.
Where can I get involved with this Church?
Besides Sunday morning worship, you can also get involved with a Faith Training Class (traditionally known as Sunday School). This is a class or group for adults that meets for about 45 minutes to help us grow deeper in our spiritual walks. The topics vary and change from quarter to quarter. Check out what is currently offered on our Faith Training page. Coffee is available at no cost in the lobby.
KCC offers several Life Groups and various Small Groups that connect during the week. Most Life groups meet to share a meal then go deeper with questions from Sunday’s message. Small Groups meet for Bible Study and prayer. Find out what groups are meeting currently at our Small Groups page.
There is always something happening at KCC. The activities vary greatly. Some are one-time events while others are ongoing. Some are for the entire family while others target groups like men, women, singles, teens, etc. Check out our Upcoming Events page to see what is coming up next!
Where can I grow spiritually?
- Sunday Morning Worship – Meet weekly with other believers, hear a Bible-based message, sing, take communion, and give.
- Faith Training – Sundays at 10:00 am we offer a variety of options to help Christians grow in their faith.
- Life Groups – Join a Small Group to go deeper in the Bible
- Read through the Bible with us – This year we are using the Bible app and reading plans “Let’s Read the Bible Together”
- Personal spiritual growth occurs as you spend time in prayer, Bible reading, worship, serving, and giving. As you practice these habits you will grow in your faith.
Where can I Serve or Volunteer?
If you’re interested in getting involved with KCC via volunteering, we have many options available to help you do that. Check out our PART Department in the church lobby or visit us online.
Where can I Meet new People?
Of course, the best place to meet new people would be Sunday mornings during worship or Sunday Faith Training. You’ll also meet new people through our Life Groups and at the many events offered throughout the church. Volunteering through our PART Department is also a wonderful way to meet people and make new friends as you serve the Lord together.
What is There for my Children?
KCC offers several different opportunities for your children to learn about Jesus. The 10:00 hour on Sundays is called “Faith Training.” It’s a newer way to say “Sunday School.” We have a class for every age during this time. Your child will learn Christian values and principles using God’s Word, the Bible.
Nursery is available during both the 8:30 and the 11:00 worship hour. Nursery is also available at 10:00 am during Faith Training.
Elementary-age children (K-5th grade) are invited to attend KidMo, an interactive video-based curriculum teaching Biblical lessons.
W.A.S.P. is our Wednesday After School Program for children 1st – 3rd grade. The hour-long program begins at 3:30 PM (unless Kalkaska has no school).

What is There for Teenagers?
