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:

April 2017 at KCC has us concluding our Lenten Journey and springing into Easter!  Gather at 8:30am or 10am for these wonderful times of communal worship of our Loving God!

Sunday, April 2, 2017.  5th Sunday of Lent.   Jesus is right outside Jerusalem preparing for his entry and he delivers one of his most apocalyptic sermons found in all of the New Testament.  And yet, in the midst of this challenging and strong words about war and rumor of wars, famine and drought, is this proclamation that the Kingdom of God is inside each of us; and it can heal us and the nations of the wars and rumor of wars that so frighten and harm us.

Sunday, April 9, 2017.  Palm to Passion Sunday.   Special Palm Processional led by our children and youth.  Jesus enters the capital city for the Passover Festival and the religious and political leaders are on edge.  Come hear why they turn on Jesus and plot to kill him even as the crowds are so excited that he has arrived.

Sunday, April 16, 2017. Easter Sunday.   The story of Easter begins with disbelief by the disciples and those who hear of its miracle.  But disbelief isn’t a barrier to healing and wholeness or the gift of Easter grace, but is the start of an amazing new adventure with God.  Come all you who disbelieve and those who already believe and journey with us and Christ through this holiest of days!

Sunday, April 23, 2017: Creation Care Sunday.    Rev. Bev Franco from Casa de Manana Retirement Village is our Guest Preacher.  Rev. Franco will be using the life story of St Francis and his beautiful ode to “Brother Sun and Sister Moon” to honor Earth Day and spur us onto a better understanding and care for creation..

Sunday, April 30, 2017: Social Justice Sunday – Human Trafficking.    Chief Asst. District Attorney, Summer Stephen, will be our Guest Preacher.  Come be inspired to participate in this 21st Century Abolitionist Movement of ending human trafficking for the women, children, and men caught in its bondage.  Asst. DA Stephens will highlight the work she is doing, as well as chronicle the stories of courage and empowerment of those folks who are trying to break free.
