I recently came across an interesting quote: “A goal without a plan is just a dream.”There’s a lot of wisdom in that statement. We’ve all known people who have big dreams, but they never seem to get anywhere because they don’t have a plan!
We have a dream at KCC to be an “authentic community where families flourish!” Our mission is to “Love God, Love Others, and Serve.” We serve our community, our region, and around the world. We have several strategies in place to help us advance our mission and vision.
You can hear more about our upcoming PLANS for this fall on Sunday, September 2, at “Donut Sunday.” There are no Sunday School classes or Community Groups meeting this Sunday at 9:15. Everyone is invited to join us in the Fellowship Hall to enjoy a time of fellowship and donuts. We will have a brief “Town Hall” style meeting to communicate some of the exciting plans that are on the horizon for us in the life of KCC.
As you may have noticed there are several changes that are in the works. The Property & Maintenance Committee has been active both inside and outside with the work being done by the Landscaping Team and several other exterior projects. The interior of the building is also undergoing some major improvements with some new flooring and paint. It’s amazing to see the difference that a fresh coat of paint and a new floor can make!
The Building Committee has been meeting and will give a brief update on the progress being made on the plans to build some additional space to accommodate the growth in our youth programs.
We will share other updates relative to AWANA, Sunday School, Adult Community Groups, Glimpse Student Ministry, and several other upcoming events. Be sure to mark your calendar and plan to be present for our Annual Pig Roast on September 9 at 5:00. A concert will follow the Pig Roast featuring an excellent singing group from the Twin Cities called “Sweetwater Revival.”
With school starting again, a new season of ministry is just around the corner. Sunday School classes and Adult Community Groups will begin on Sunday, September 9 at 9:15. AWANA and Glimpse begin on Wednesday, September 12. The Sunday Bulletin and our KCC website have additional information you may find helpful.
This fall we will continue our study of the book of Joshua on Sunday Mornings. Here is the line-up for September:
- September 2, 2018 “An Included Outcast” Joshua 2
- September 9, 2018 “A Place for You” Joshua 3
- September 16, 2018 “Remember Not to Forget” Joshua 4
- September 23, 2018 “A Surprise Encounter” Joshua 5
- September 30, 2018 “Defeating Strongholds” Joshua 6
I’m excited and looking forward to what God has in store for us in the coming weeks and months! It’s going to be a great fall!
Until next month…May God bless you and yours!
PS I’m also pleased to announce that the Elders are in the process of planning a Leadership Training Program to mentor and develop future Elders. We will be using a practical resource for the equipping of congregational leaders who serve as Elders of the Church. Watch for more information and, if interested, please visit with one of our current Elders.
I’m excited about this new initiative because “The world at its worst needs the Church at her best!” I believe this training will provide continuity and stability in our leadership team for years to come! Please pray for the success of this venture as we seek to raise up a new generation of leadership for the Church!
