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.”

Join us this Sunday. Just show up!

Easter Celebration

Join us to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection – the greatest event in history, EVER!!
Easter Sunday, April 1

SUNRISE SERVICE 7am – outdoors, around a bonfire, Easter songs accompanied by a fiddle and guitar, prayers and the great Easter story.

EASTER CELEBRATION SERVICE 10am – indoors, a full worship band leading us in praise and worship to the Risen Saviour.




Worship @ KCRC –

We gather every Sunday at 10am for  worship, with something for all ages.

Childcare is provided, and programs for kids ages 3-8. A quiet room is available. Plan to stay for refreshments after the service!

Most services are led by one of our three 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.

If you would like to listen to past sermons, podcasts are found under the tab  “Sermons And Stuff.”

I was blown away last night at KCRC's Spring Meeting, and reminded why it is such an honor to serve as pastor in this loving community of Jesus-followers.

Why? Being able to witness quiet and lavish generosity shared by friends of Jesus in all sorts of ways locally and beyond - the good gifts God provides here at KCRC are poured into the lives of others.

Yes, the budget was made - all good.
But way bigger than that were reports of record generosity from the loving hearts here at KCRC in 2017: happily donating 30% of all funds collected to organisations and ministries beyond our doors - including House of Lazarus, Kemptville Youth Centre, Lifewater Canada, Big Brothers/Sisters, Salvation Army, KV Accessible Transportation, and more.

And gladly offering countless volunteer hours in all sorts of ways. Featured last night were reports from volunteers with Disaster Response Services (an arm of World Renew), RING (Refugees In North Grenville), and Kemptville Lions - who collect thousands of donated eye glasses and distribute them to needy recipients in Guyana. Lion Bob Sentner presented a Friendship Banner on behalf of the local club to KCRC. We are delighted to be their partners. It's one small way to serve a world in need with the heart and love of Jesus.

Like I say - it blew me away. I'm SO grateful to God that he allows me to serve here --- Pastor Ken

At KCRC we value getting out of the pews, and rubbing elbows in smaller group settings.
We've got clubs for girls and boys, meeting on Wednesday and Thursday nights, respectively.  And a Youth Club, meeting on Sundays.
Women and men love spending time modelling mature faith living to the kids, while helping them have FUN!
There are also small groups for adults meeting at various times through the week.

GEMS is an all girls program designed for girls between the ages of 9 - 14.  We focus on building relationships with each other through games, crafts, service projects, badge activities and music.  We also learn how to apply the Bible to our lives through these various activities.
We meet every Wednesday from 6:30 - 8:00 starting the end of September and finish the beginning of May.
Cost is $60 for the year and includes a t-shirt, bible, badge book, scarf/slide and all craft supplies.

Cadets: Christian Cadet Club (CCC) meets Thursdays, 7:00 to 8:30 PM. The goal is to share Christ's love with boys in gr.4-8.  Each week features games, crafts, and bible devotions.  Outings are planned throughout the year, including rallies with other area clubs for shared fun and competition.  CCC is part of a North-America network of 600+ clubs. This year's theme is "God seeking us", based on the Bible verse Ezekiel 34:11. Leaders Jordan, Todd and Adrian would love to have you join them.

YOUTH CLUB: meets alternate Sundays, after worship, 11:30-1:30.
Lunch, devotional, and games make for an energetic, fun time for young teens, gr.6-9. Sponsor couples are Adrian & Marilyn Brobbel, Pastor Ken & Sharon Gehrels. Henry & Rose Mulder. Bring a friend, join the fun!

LIFT is our small group program for adults (Life In Fellowship Together):
LIFT 1 gathers on Sunday evenings, for those in their 20's and 30's. We're enjoying time with each other in a casual setting, and are encouraged in our faith as we experience Youth Alpha videos and discussion.

LIFT 2 is for the over-40 crowd, gathering on Sundays, post-service. We share a simple meal, growing relationships as friends (new and old), and dig & probe into the teachings of Sunday morning's sermon.

WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDIES are available Monday morning, Monday evening, and Tuesday afternoon in homes around the region.
MEN'S BREAKFAST meets monthly over Saturday breakfast at the church.
