The church’s liturgical year is a rich source of illumination and inspiration—12 months of the year. To hear some of the season’s recent sermons, click here. Check out the topics and themes we will explore in upcoming weeks:
Here are the themes for our worship services this month at KCC! Gather at 8:30 AM or 10 AM for these wonderful times of communal worship of our Loving God!
Sunday, January 6: Epiphany Sunday. Come hear an inspired message from guest preacher, Harry “Kip” Kipp. Kip is a Member-in-Discernment for the Southern Association of the SCNC-UCC and is seeking ordination in the UCC. Pastor Darryl will be away from the pulpit this Sunday on a spiritual retreat.
Sunday, January 13: Baptism of Christ Sunday. We hear the words “This is my Beloved, with whom I am well-pleased” coming down from Heaven onto the person of Christ. We will echo these words as we affirm the coming out of one of our beloved members, Keegan Trischman, as a Trans-man. Pastor Darryl will also bless Keegan in a special Name Changing Ceremony based on the classic liturgy of baptism.
Sunday, January 20: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Sunday. An inspiring service of song, words from Dr. King, and scripture. This year we will focus on Dr. King’s work in beginning the Poor People’s Campaign and how that work needs to be carried on with us in the 21st century.
Sunday, January 27: KCC Annual Meeting. Before the Congregation meets for its Annual Meeting, Pastor Darryl will deliver his State of the Church Address at each service. This sermon will look back at the previous year, as well as provide guiding principles and discernment for the mission and ministry of our church in the upcoming calendar year.
