Celebrating Christmas

November 24, 2020 | KSC News

Celebrate Christ with Us this Christmas!


We are looking forward to a variety of events that will help us to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  We hope you will join us!  Beginning on Sunday, November 29 — the first day of Advent — Pastor Jody will share a series, “Because Jesus Came.”  In planning for the messages, he shares, “Because of Christmas—because Jesus came to this earth—my present circumstances are forever changed. They are changed when I remember that Jesus is WITH ME. I don’t have to focus on the trials…or the storms. I keep my mind centered on Christ…and it completely changes how I view my struggles and circumstances.”

There are several other ways that we plan to celebrate the season.  Keep in mind, these plans were made in November.  Should the rise of the coronavirus worsen, we may need to make changes.  You can check back at this page for updates.


Virtual Advent Concert
Sunday, December 6

On December 6th at 4:00 pm we will offer an online-only Advent Concert which will feature your favorite Christmas carols and special instrumental guests, including a harpist.  We will share in Christ-centered instrumental music, sing carols “together,” and hear Advent/Christmas scriptures to remind us today that God is with us!  We pray that this event will be inspiring to all, and help us to ready our hearts for Jesus to enter.  Just as He came long ago He is coming again!  Watch the Service Here
