Worship Themes

Our Sabbatical Coverage Minister, Rev. Dr. David Pitt, begins his time with us on Sunday April 8, 2018.  He will be at each service on Sundays leading us in worship.  We are so excited that Rev. Pitt has agreed to be our coverage minister while Pastor Darryl is on Sabbatical (April 8-July 8, 2018).   Click here to learn a little more about Rev. Pitt’s background and professional experience.

Here are the themes for our worship services this month at KCC!  Gather at 8:30am or 10am for these wonderful times of communal worship of our Loving God!

Thursday, March 29:  Sun-set Maundy Thursday.   Hosted by our Partnership Sister Congregation, Pioneer-Oceanview UCC ( 2550 Fairfield St, San Diego, CA 92110), on The POINT overlooking the bay. A Service of Word, prayer, chant, communion, and foot-washing as the sun sets.  A very moving service for the whole family.  FYI: You may wish dress warmly or bring a blanket as it can get chilly on the point as the sun goes down.

Sunday, March 30:  Good Friday.   Hosted by our Partnership Sister Congregation, Mission Hills United Church of Christ (4070 Jackdaw St, San Diego, CA 92103), this Good Friday worship will be a Solemn and Sobering Service of Prayer, Song, and Using the Last Words of Christ.


Sunday, April 1:  EASTER SUNDAY!    Our Highest Holiday in all of Christianity.  It’s also April Fool’s Day.  What a weird combination of dates … but maybe not that odd after all.  For as the Apostle Paul has written, “God’s Wisdom is Foolishness to human beings.”  Or as Martin Luther once said, “God’s Foolishness is more powerful than Human Wisdom.”  Come live into the Foolishness of God and receive the blessing of Resurrection.  Hallelujah!

Sunday, April 8:  BRIGHT SUNDAY!    Continue to live into the Easter Season with this fun service of jokes and color and joy.  Based on the ancient tradition that the joke was on “the devil”, Christ isn’t dead, he is raised.  The ancient church used the Sunday after Easter as a way to express their joy through a service turned upside down.  There will be juggling, face-painting, and the congregation is invited to wear bright clothes, costumes, and clowning gear.

Sunday, April 15.   Come join us in song, prayer, and in hearing the Word preached and proclaimed.

Sunday, April 22:  Earth Day!    KCC will give thanks to God for all the blessings this great and beautiful creation has gifted us.  We will also be reminded of our charge to be responsible for and good stewards of this amazing creation!

Sunday, April 29.   Come join us in song, prayer, and in hearing the Word preached and proclaimed.   We will have a very special mission moment during each service as we’ll learn more about our summer home build mission outreach in Tijuana from our partners at CASA DE LUZ.
