ABOUT MASKS: We are asking that everyone wear a mask when moving within the common spaces (foyers, hallways, bathrooms, etc.). There are mask-free entrances at the corner of the Baker Center and on Second Street for those who plan to stay within the Baker Center Gym at the 11:00 service. Please wear a mask on the way to a Sunday School class or when picking up/dropping off children. At masks-required services, you are asked to keep the mask on throughout the service
Today, we will be celebrating communion during each of the worship services. Individually-packaged elements will be available at the entrance to each venue. If you are worshiping online, please prepare your elements at home so that we can celebrate the Lord’s Supper together.
This month’s Communion Offering will go to the Rhodes Grove Campership Fund. The church pays a portion of camp fees for children and teens who regularly attend KSC.
Outdoor Gathering Next Week
Next Sunday, May 16, is our all-church, outdoor worship service at 10:00 am in the Baker Center parking lot. We’re excited to come together as one church body to worship God. This special time together will replace our normal Sunday schedule. We hope you will bring a chair and join us in the Baker Center parking lot. We have invited some food trucks to join us on site after worship, and are planning a children’s activity, so we encourage you to stay for lunch and connect with others.
Child Dedication Classes
Child dedication is an opportunity for parents to commit publicly to raising their children in the love and nurture of the Lord. Next dedication will be on Father’s Day, June 20. If you wish to participate in this special ceremony, attend the prep class on May 23 in the Fellowship Room at 11:00 am. Questions, contact Becky Hann.
One of our favorite annual traditions is honoring our graduates. High school and undergrad students who wish to be included should forward a digital picture/scanned image to Lauren Dukehart, Student Ministry Admin: email@example.com. Include details about what school you have graduated from and any future plans. The deadline to submit is May 16; graduation Sunday is June 6.
Summer Sneak Is Back!
Students currently in grades 8-12 are invited to join us for 5 days – June 16-20 – at Cape Henlopen State Park, in Lewes, Delaware. This will be a great way to wrap up a school year of hard work and let the stress of the year wash away with the ocean waves. This week could be the highlight of your summer, maybe even your life! We’ll spend time with friends, hit the boardwalk, play some beach games, enjoy campfires, worship, and hear teaching from God’s Word. Get registered today at kingstreetchurch.com/sneak.
New Ministry for Young Adults
King Street Church is excited to announce our new young adult ministry, The Porch. The Porch exists to gather young adults to connect, support, and challenge one another. All young adults are welcome, whether or not you attend King Street. The Porch will meet at 7 pm on the first and third Thursdays of the month beginning on May 20 in the Student Ministry Center. For questions or more information, please visit kingstreetchurch.com/youngadult.
New 11:00 Service
On Sunday, May 23, our service at 11:00 am in the Sanctuary will become the United worship service, which will unite our tradition with the present as we look to the future with a relaxed traditional worship format. Pastor Steve Flint will lead in a musical style that is anchored by the piano and guitar. We encourage you to come and check out this new service at 11 am on May 23 in the Sanctuary.
Bless Day, June 12

Service activities will be offered on Saturday, June 12, in the morning from 9 am—12 noon. HERE are some of the current opportunities; even more are being added.
