Make a Meal Full of Love for Rachel’s House

Next Dinner Services are May 30, 2021

Rachel’s House provides services to homeless women in downtown San Diego. KCC helps by preparing and serving one meal a month. KCC continues to provide our monthly meal to the ladies at Rachel’s House while maintaining safe, social distancing.

We provided a very special meal for the women at Rachel’s House on December 27. Elizabeth made her posole that she would have made for the community during our Posada celebration. It was amazing that we could continue and extend our tradition with the women at Rachel’s House.

Sara Anderson, will be in touch with you if you have signed up to provide any portion of our meal this month.  Questions? Contact Sara by phone or text at 857-222-0017 or by email at

The mission of Rachel’s House is “To address the root causes of homelessness for women by creating communities that value individual needs and differences, with opportunities to effect changes in their lives.”   We can help, just a little bit, by providing a warm meal for these ladies who are trying so hard to change their lives.

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 Throw Open Our Doors. Our Faith Propels Us to the Streets!

Since 1929, our church has served as a beacon and a hub for our community. Whether we throw our doors open for our Halloween carnival or our quarterly senior luncheons, for recovery groups, our well regarded preschool, or the neighborhood garden club, we cherish our role as friendly hosts.

Yet our faith also propels us to the streets—to paint fences in the City Heights Facelift, to offer care and comfort to those fleeing domestic abuse, to march in the Gay Pride Parade and support homeless clients at Uptown Faith Community Service Center. Our full list of our community partners includes:

We Teach Each Other To Live More Thoughtfully.
We Extend Love and Mercy to Those Around the World.

We bring thirsty minds and open hearts to our life together at KCC. Recently we’ve challenged ourselves to learn more about the deterioration of our planet’s soil, food shortages here and abroad, end of life care as well as the peace of labyrinth walks. We extend the reach of our love and support to those around the world with our global missions:
