All Things: KCRC Online Service for July 5, 2020.

The Heidelberg Catechism makes the audacious claim that all things (not just ‘good’ things) come to us from God’s Fatherly hand (Q&A 27)…which includes COVID-19.  The catechism’s confidence is grounded in the promises of scripture found in places like Romans 8:28.  Paul’s famous promise is not that everything that happens to us in life is good.  He writes these verses precisely because so much of what we experience in life can be downright heartbreaking and evil. Rather, what Paul promises is that God is so wise .and so sovereign that He will turn even the truly terrible things in our lives and in this world toward the good of making us into the likeness of his son Jesus Christ.



Please join us for today’s message as Pastor Craig Hoekema will reflect with us some of the ways God may be at work for our good in the midst of the pandemic. Grab your bibles as we study from Romans 8:28-30.

At this time our worship services continue online only as we discern the best way to again meet safely for in- person worship.

Not The Way of Caesar: Proof of a Promise – KCRC Online Service for June 28, 2020.

Last week, Pastor Sid Ypma, left us on a bit of a cliffhanger … “The glory of God is something given to us in the creation, but we as humans tend to settle for something less than the fullness of the beauty of God.” Why?

Not The Way of Caesar: Imagine Celebrating Weakness – KCRC Online Service for June 7, 2020.

  Today we begin a new sermon series for the month of June. Rev Sid Ypma, Campus Chaplain at UOttawa will bring us four sermons based out of the early chapters of the book of Romans. We read from Romans 1:1-17 and from the Old Testament book of Habakkuk 2:2-5.

We will focus on verses 16 & 17 of Romans 1 and considering what Paul is not ashamed of. The gospel, as Paul is speaking of it here, is not just about Jesus dying for our sins, but the way in which God’s faithfulness is mediated through such a shameful and weak way…the cross.

Paul is not ashamed of this good news that it counter cultural in a  Roman empire. When he quotes from Habakkuk, we get a deeper hint at what he’s challenging. Pastor Sid will also lead us in Holy Communion together. Please join us.

‘Clean Clothes’ – KCRC Online Service for May 31, 2020.

  I don’t believe in God, but if there was a God would He love me? 
A very honest question right?
We welcome Rev. Joe Groeneveld, Youth and Young Adults Pastor at Williamsburg CRC to KCRC. This morning he introduces us to Maria who asked this very question.
Perhaps it is a question you have asked in the past or you can raise your hand right here, right now and stand with Maria….. and if we look hard enough Satan the accuser is right behind us reminding us of our unworthiness, our filth.


But there is good news, because the Lord is a just and gracious judge, His people can have true hope despite their sin, that is the theme of today’s message.  We hope you can join us, grab your bible as Pastor Joe takes us verse by verse through Zechariah 3.

“Praying Together In One Accord” KCRC Online Service for May 24, 2020.

  Today we welcome Rev. Marilyn Savage to KCRC.
Jesus has ascended to the Father. The disciples, their hopes dashed, go back to Jerusalem with mixed feelings to continue the ministry of Jesus on their own. How can anything ever be good again? Sound familiar? We are reminded that with the God that we serve what appears to us to be endings are often beginnings.

And so in this time of uncertainty, we prayerfully and humbly seek the Holy Spirit for empowered ministry to fill and renew us to be faithful ambassadors of the good news. We do this in unity with each other in obedience to Jesus and in anticipation of his return.  We hope you can join us, grab your bible we will be reading from Act 1:1-14.

What I Am Discovering During The Pandemic – KCRC Online Service for May 17, 2020.

  A fingerprint is used to identify, DNA even more so. Other ways we are identified in this world may be by our family of origin, our culture, our appearance, or status. But if you were asked what is your identity in Christ? What would your answer be? A positive outcome of this pandemic is the opportunity to rediscover our attitudes and priorities and “who we are in Christ” and “what we have in Christ”. 

We welcome Pastor Shawn Ketcheson back as our guest preacher. Grab you bible we will be reading from Philippians 2:5-8. We hope you can join us.

What If Mothering Gets Hard? – KCRC Online Service for May 10, 2020.

Today we celebrate Mother’s Day. Would you agree with the saying: “What happens to your child, happens to you”? So true, isn’t it? So what do you do when your child is ill, or rebellious, or one day walks away from faith, never to return? Tough stuff!  In today’s message the women in the story whose child is ill had to pass numerous  tests (including the sense of divine silence, doubt and discouragement) prior to blessings. 

She ultimately experiences God, through Jesus Christ and we can too. We welcome Pastor Shawn Ketcheson as he shares the message from Matthew 15: 21-28, so grab your bible and please join us.
