RIGHT NOW MEDIA

KSC has a subscription to Right Now Media, which is sometimes called “The Christian Netflix.”  It offers thousands of hours of free Bible studies and videos from teachers such as Francis Chan, Max Lucado, Chip Ingram and Andy Stanley.  There is also a section for kids.  Many Bible studies and classes here at KSC are already using it.  We believe this free resource can be a vital tool for growth in your Christian life.  If you haven’t received an invitation in your email inbox, email sallen@kschurch.org.
