Be a Postcard Writer!

 As you may have read in our Sunday bulletin announcements and in Grace Notes, KCC and Maryhill Parish (Glasgow, Scotland) are going to be writing posts to each other this coming year as we hold each other in prayer and encourage each other in our ministries.  It’s a very Paul thing to do!  We’ve already received postcards from Maryhill Parish and we’ll be sharing them with you in the months to come. If you would like to be one of the corresponders, please talk to Pastor Darryl. Here’s  the latest postcard.




LoadingCome Join the Choir! No Prerequisites Required!

You are invited to come lift up your voice and/or other musical talents in song with our Chancel Choir on Sunday mornings. Find out more about the choir and the many benefits of singing from Worship Leader, Kay-Marie Moreno and Choir Director/Accompanist, David McBean.

Let Us Know:

Are we performing music you want to hear? Do you miss hearing or singing a particular hymn or song? Let us know and send in your requests to Kay-Marie Moreno ( and we’ll see where we can plug them into the services. We are always looking for ideas and welcome yours.

Serve as a Sunday Greeter

If you are able to smile, shake hands and say hello, you are the perfect candidate to be a Sunday morning greeter for the 10:00 service. Duties include coming about 20 minutes early, greeting everyone, and telling visitors that there are Visitor Information Cards in the pews. If someone needs other information, such as where child care is, the greeter can tell them, or ask an usher to help them. That’s all there is to it. So if you would like to do this, please sign up on the sheet in Lander Hall.


Serve in Other Ways

Serve as a liturgist. Bring refreshments or prepare communion. Wash linens or press play to launch multimedia. Want to sing or play an instrument in worship, even if you can’t commit to the Chancel Choir?

Deepen your connection to our church family, serving on one of our ministry committees. Chat with us about getting involved at


Be Family to Each Other

The family we create among our church friends is precious. Foster it in smaller and interest based groups: Secret Sisters, Women’s Spirituality, Circle Group, Prayer Shawl Ministry, Chancel Choir, Youth Group, Camp Stevens Retreats, and more. Contact us to learn more these groups. Or suggest a new idea for a small group! We are at
