KSC and COVID-19

March 13, 2020 | Uncategorized

Return to this page for any updates regarding our response to the coronavirus infection. 

UPDATE:  Saturday, March 21, at 6:00 pm:  Families can receive materials for their children on SUNDAY morning by clicking a link that will be posted on our Crosswalk Kids Facebook page:  Crosswalk Facebook   (This link will only be active on Sunday.)  Students, you can now sign up for your summer missions trips on this page:  Summer Trips

UPDATE:  Thursday, March 19, at 10:00 am:  King Street Church has closed both the church building and administrative office to cooperate with Governor Wolf’s mandate directed at all “non-life-sustaining businesses.” Be assured — we are excited to worship with you *online* this Sunday morning (and every Sunday) at 8:00 am, 9:30 am, and 11:00 am. We believe that the work of the Church was never been more crucial, and staff members will be working remotely to ensure that we can continue to support our church family in our collective mission. We plan to be creative in using social media, our website, and other digital venues to connect, offer service opportunities, and help each other through this challenging season. WE ARE THE CHURCH! Let’s meet back right *here* on Sunday morning to worship God together and to pray for our country.

UPDATE:  Monday, March 16, at 1:00 pm:  After significant prayer and discussion, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our in-person worship services on Sunday, March 22.  This includes Sunday school classes and programs for children and students. We will be holding ALL of our services online: traditional at 8:00 am, and contemporary at 9:30 and 11:00 am. We hope that our church family will make plans to worship with us LIVE at one of these services.

We want to respect and abide by the CDC’s national recommendation restricting gatherings of 50 or more people. With this in mind, we will not be holding any *other* gatherings of 50 or more this week, including Celebrate Recovery, the Orphan Care & Adoption meeting, GriefShare, and programs for children and students.

LIVESTREAM Worship Services

Should you choose to stay home, there are many ways to watch KSC worship services. We have our own channels on Apple TV and Roku. You can also watch live on Facebook, or right here on our site:  WATCH LIVE

Finding our Confidence in Him!

A problem like the coronavirus/COVID-19 can be scary, but even as we employ wise practices, we also hold fast to the truth of Scripture, that our God is in control of our lives and we can put our trust in Him! Pastor Don Baker has asked that we meditate on this passage from Jeremiah 17:7-8:

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”

Pastor Don further offers, “Keep praying for the Lord to stay this virus – for healing for those infected, for comfort for the mourners, for followers of Jesus to minister grace and compassion, for God to glorify Himself through all of this.”
