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.”

WORSHIP

Announcements for Sunday, December 5, 2021:

We welcome you as we celebrate the season of Advent.  This Sunday we light the peace candle, which represents not only the peace that comes from our assurance of salvation, but also the peace of mind knowing God will heal this broken world and will come again.
O Come Emmanuel verse 2This Sunday we welcome for in person worship those designated to Group B and all those who do not have access to the online service and all visitors.

All others are invited to watch online, a livestream of the service available here.

We celebrate together the Lord’s Supper in which we proclaim Christ’s death, affirm with joy Christ’s resurrection and await Christ’s second coming with hope. Those participating online, are asked to have elements ready.

For Children’s Worship and Jam: this week parents will receive resource material through email, there is no video.

See, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me, and the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple. The messenger of the covenant in whom you delight — indeed, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts. But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? Words from the Prophet Malachi

 

Our Sunday morning worship at this time designates KCRC family and friends to specified weeks to either share in person or online. Each week there is room for visitors, we gladly welcome you to worship with us either on site or online.   Sunday mornings at 10:00am.   Safety protocols are in place including sign in, wearing masks and safe distancing guidelines.

Livestream Services can be found on the Kemptville CRC YouTube Channel.  Search for us there, and subscribe.

Archived services can be found under Sermons & Services

So…… what will you find when you worship with us?   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.
