Worship Themes

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:

May 2017 at KCC has us celebrating some very special Sunday worship experiences!  Gather at 8:30am or 10am for these wonderful times of communal worship of our Loving God!

Sunday, May 7, 2017.    We will be looking at one of the most twisted and abused scriptures in all of the New Testament, the 2nd Chapter of 1st Peter.  These verses were used by American slave owners to continue the enslavement of African slaves and their descendants.  Unfortunately, these aren’t the only verses used over the years to suppress, violate, or discriminate against others.  So how do we find Good News when there’s so much bad news in our Gospel story?

Sunday, May 14, 2017.  Mother’s Day.   Special performance by The Voices of the City Choir.  On Mother’s Day, our sanctuary will be filled with beautiful music from Our Mother’s Hymnbook as we celebrate this wonderful occasion with a congregational hymnsing and special music by The Voices of the City Choir.  The VOTC Choir is a choir made up 100% of San Diegians living on the streets.  Come be inspired and moved.

Sunday, May 21, 2017. Confirmation Sunday.   One of the best Sundays of the Year!  Our confirmation class will present their “Covenants” of their beliefs on God, Jesus, the Church, Creation, and the Afterlife in a myriad of ways and styles.  Our young people will amaze you with their depth and creativity.

Sunday, May 28, 2017.  Memorial Day Weekend.    Come honor those who have died in the service of our nation.  We will lift a special prayer as we remember.  And we will recommit ourselves to the ethic of Christ who would have us settle our personal and international conflicts non-violently so no more Children of God may die in war.
