Mission & Service Opportunities!


Help Ponce’s Feed Our Neighborhood!

KCC’s Ministry of Mission and Outreach (MMO) would like to encourage you to help our neighbor, Ponce’s Restaurant, to help feed our neighborhood! Ponce’s has set up a way for us to pay for meals for folks who are struggling economically, due to the effects of COVID-19. Pastor Darryl bought $100 worth of meals through his Pastor’s Discretionary Fund.  If you’d like to help cover the meal of a “neighbor”, visit Ponce’s E-Tock page and donate.


We are Wrapping Up Our 2021 Stewardship Campaign!  “Beloved, Love.”


This year’s Stewardship theme is, “Beloved, Love”. We are reminded that love is a call to action as we care for each other in community.  Our annual campaign is now underway. Thank you to the 40 people and families who have already returned their Estimated Giving Cards. We have 7 new “pledgers”,and 9 people/families increased their giving this year.  We are so blessed by God indeed. Your faithful stewardship allows us to plan the way forward for KCC as we navigate the challenges of mission and ministry during this pandemic.We are still receiving Estimated Giving Cards. If, after your own prayerful discernment, you are planning to send in your Estimated Giving Cards, we invite you to do so as soon as you are able and comfortable coming back into the church. If you have not received this year’s Stewardship Materials, and would like them, please let the church office know.  619-284-1129 x301 or  God has done, and continues to do, remarkable things through and with us. We are grateful for your continuing financial support.


Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service~Refresh, Renew, Reinvigorate!


On the first Sunday evening of each month at 7 PM over Zoom, you are invited to a time of tranquility, a time of listening to the still small Voice, a time of growing closer in relationship to the Holy, a time of being still. Each evening will include a spiritual reading or two followed by a time of silence for contemplation.

  • Find a quiet place in your home where you can be restful for an hour: a quiet corner, a comfy recliner. Light a candle. Dim the lights. Play some soft music.
  • Let your spirit find calm and a haven for an hour of renewal. Allow this time to refresh you, renew you, reinvigorate your very being. May you draw closer to a knowing of Spirit within you and guiding you.

The next Spirit’s Haven Contemplation will be on January 3rd, at 7:00 PM. Led by Paula Elizabeth, KCC’s former interim pastor; we are excited that she and her husband Rev. Ross Putnam recently became members of KCC! Paula is an ordained minister, a spiritual director, a coach for clergy, congregations and leaders, and a counselor. She has been leading contemplative services for many years as well as offering other contemplative practices.

The Zoom links to join Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service will be published in the Weekly Prayers and Announcements the Friday before Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service meets.

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
