About Kemptville CRC

We are a community of young and old, urban and rural people, company leaders and blue collar types who care deeply about our relationships with God and with each other. We simply care about trying to connect every part of life to Jesus.  Everyone can find a place - and truly belong. We’re also quick to admit we're a pretty imperfect bunch in our daily lives, and our spirituality.  As they say, we're still "on the way."  If you can relate to that, you'd fit right in here, "A Church for Imperfect People.”

During the COVID-19 Crisis all KCRC groups and programming are suspended. Live worship, however, has resumed. Hope you can join us. For COVID protocol details please click on the "WORSHIP" tab.

WORSHIP

Worship @ KCRC –

**Announcement:

In person Worship begins September 6, 2020 at 10:00am.   For the health and safety of all we will be following guidelines set out by the Health Authorities.   

That means:

 

  • Not coming to church if you have been ill, or in contact with someone who has had COVID 19
  • Signing in at the door
  • Wearing a mask
  • Sanitizing your hands
  • Physically distancing—included in this is the fact that the Worship leaders of each service have enough space between them and the congregation so that they may remove their masks while engaged in leading parts of the service
  • No socializing in the fellowship hall after the service
  • No children’s programming (nursery or children’s worship/Jam)
  • Only 30% of the sanctuary’s capacity will be used on any Sunday
  • Sanitizing the building before and after each service
  • No one should feel pressured to attend in person.  If you do not feel comfortable for any reason, you may stay at home and watch the service on-line.   They can be found under the main menu tab  “Sermons And Stuff.”

So…… what will you find if and when you come?   We gather every Sunday at 10am for  worship.  All services are led by one of our bands. The sound and feel is informal – sort of a “country coffee house” vibe. Readings, prayers and messages address real needs and concerns of our daily lives, connecting them to the timeless truth and loving care of God, as that comes to us through Jesus. You’ll find the Bible playing a huge role in our worship, as the compass of  our faith, guiding us to Jesus. You’ll also notice hints and pieces in worship that almost sound ancient – which they are, inspired by some of the ways Jesus-followers worshiped almost 2000 years ago.
