Secure In The Storm: “When Productivity Ceases”

Welcome as we continue the teaching series, “Secure In The Storm,” COVID-19 is forcing all of us into isolation. Many are being laid off from work. We’re all stuck at home doing …..nothing. Productivity is grinding to a national halt. And people are going twitchy.

Which makes sense ’cause our society puts such great value on productivity and innovation. The more the better. And the more value and esteemed you are.

So what happens when all of that is stood on its head? What about our worth as human beings? How do we see ourselves? Each other? Join us as we dig into Philippians 4:10-20 and explore some hope giving answers to these questions.

During COVID-19 we are streaming our services, see link below. Wherever social distancing finds you today, your kitchen, your living room, by yourself or with your family, you are welcome please join us……

Secure In The Storm: “When We Worry”

Today we continue the teaching series, “Secure In The Storm,” wondering about the times when our life struggles lead us to be consumed with WORRY. We’ll listen to Psalm 77, where the writer was consumed by a worry that God has given up on his people.

From there we’ll go to some specific things Jesus said about WORRY (in Luke 12) and conclude with some deep spiritual coaching from St. Paul in Philippians 4.

Secure In The Storm: “When We Get Distracted”

This past Sunday, March 8th we continued our teaching series “Secure In The Storm,” and wondered about the times when our life struggles get us distracted to the point of getting all focused on stuff that REALLY doesn’t matter.

What does that? What are the consequences? And what are some tips to fight against such distraction? We’ll read Psalm 73..

Secure In The Storm: “When Foolishness Enters The Room”

March 1st we continued our teaching series “Secure In The Storm,” and wondered about how to respond to unhelpful comments that come our way when we suffer; some of them even well meaning. One’s like “If you pray harder and truly believe, you’d be healed.” “Is there a sin you need to confess?” “Whose fault is it anyways?”

And we witness Jesus interacting with his disciples in John 9:1-5 and Luke 13:1-5. We ended with a call to prayer from Psalm 55.

Secure In The Storm: “When Innocence Is Lost.”

On February 23rd, in our teaching series “Secure In The Storm,” we wondered how to respond to pain and injustice that some of the powerful social structures around us inflict on the vulnerable.

How do we respond, “When Innocence Is Lost?” Psalm 12 becomes our launch point to thinking about “Powers and Principalities.”

Secure In The Storm: “When God Seems to Disappear.”

This past Sunday, February 16th, we picked up on the series “Secure In The Storm, wondering about ways that we can live well even when life circumstances are bashing us around and threatening to drown us. This week we wondered how to handle the times when “God Seems to Disappear.

Our starting point (but NOT where we finish) is one of the last things Jesus said while on the cross – a quote from the Old Testament: Psalm 22:1.

Cadet Sunday: “Hi God, it’s me.”

On February 9th, we celebrated the ministry to boys here at KCRC known as Cadets. They are a Christian Cadet Club (CCC), where men mentor boys in what it is to live an authentic life of faith in Jesus through the very real challenges of growing up and life in general.

Their theme this year is prayer-how interested is God in hearing from us? How hard is He to get a hold of? What difference can prayer make in our lives? We explored a bit of this from Jeremiah 29: 12 under the title, Hi God, it’s me.

Secure in the Storm: “When Our Dreams Are Blown Away.”

Welcome to a new message series here at KCRC, “Secure in the Storm.” We are taking a hard look at how we can ever possibly live WELL in the midst of some of the gut-wrenching storms that assault our lives. We always have options, some destructive, while others are life-nourishing, hope giving.

Join us as we seek to avoid the former, and follow the words of Jesus and the truths in God’s Word in finding nourishing hope for the struggles that we ALL face. Ecclesiastes 9:1-11 shoves us off the pier and into the storm.
