Outreach

King Street Church is committed to spreading the Gospel to our community and to our world.   Many Sunday School classes and Small Groups get involved in local and international ministries.

Local ministries run by King Street Church:

  • AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM:
    Every Monday and Tuesday from 4-6 p.m. during the school year, approximately 25 children from the Ben Chambers Elementary gather at King Street Church for homework help, a warm meal, and friendly interaction.  Through the leadership of Jeanie Helman, our Children’s Outreach Coordinator, and a wide variety of volunteers, we show the love of Jesus in a unique way, right where we live.  Current needs:  Tuesday Tutors, each week from 4:45-6:15 pm: This is a weekly commitment from now until April 24. It’s a great way to engage and bless our neighborhood children in 1st-5th grade.
  • AGAPE ENGLISH PROGRAM:
    Each Saturday, the Agape English Program meets with approximately 25-30 ESL students, 2-4 faithful teachers and several childcare volunteers for a room full of children.  KSC is loving neighbors by helping them to help themselves— all for the glory of God. As this exciting ministry grows, there are many opportunities for volunteers.  You are encouraged to come out any Saturday evening at 5 p.m. and observe the group in action.  Contact Sue Marshall to learn more: susmarshall721@gmail.com.

    Our church family has a great opportunity to engage and bless high school students in our community with the Gospel through the avenue of basketball.   Every year over 30 students come into our gym looking for an opportunity to play the game they love.  For more info and ways to get involved please contact me, Matt Gish at mgish@kschurch.org.
  • ONCE MORE MINISTRIES:
    This ministry shares the love of Jesus and builds relationships with our neighbors by sharing toiletries with those who cannot afford them.  They work with the disabled, those with serious illnesses, unemployed and low-income families, single mothers, victims of domestic violence, the homeless, and many others in Franklin County.  The ministry is led by Tracy Mentzer and Dixie Cantrell.  The church will collect toiletries in the lobbies in February, May, August, and November.
