To those who are confused and need counsel
To all who are strong and want to serve
To those who feel thwarted and need courage
To all who are lonely and want companionship
To all who are sinful and need a Savior
This Church opens wide its doors
And in the name of Christ our Lord says: WELCOME!!!!

New Opportunity

Sunday Evening Service

The Worship Team is planning a NEW worship service that will be held on Sunday evenings this fall, preceded by coffee & conversation; and followed by a snack supper, fellowship, and activities for all age levels. This service will be unique and unlike anything else in town. Although, one of our goals is to connect youth and young people, everyone is invited to be part of this opportunity to grow our church and get our name out into the community. If you would like to be part of this exciting new endeavor to welcome new friends to Kern, contact Ashley Lockridge (399-2297 or ashley.lockridge@gmail.com) or Marcia Walker (414-7321 or marciawalker@comcast.net).

You may also download the following sign-up sheet to indicate how you would like to be involved.
