Pragmatic Theology in Cambodia – Core Values for my Work There – KCRC Online Service for August 16, 2020.

Be still and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10

We welcome back to KCRC Janne Ritskes. One of the most frequent questions Janne is asked is “How do you do what you do? Today Janne shares her story of faith and the impact being an image bearer of God has on her walk of faith and her work in Cambodia through Tabitha Foundation. It is a remarkable story.

You are invited to pause, be still and come spend time in worship of an amazing God.

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?


We hope you can join us for this weeks message, the last of the four part series: Not the Way of Caesar – Reflections on Gospel in the Early Chapters of Romans. It’s been a great series, if you’ve missed any of the earlier messages, just scroll back to earlier posts for the audio downloads.

We delve into Romans 4 today, grab your bible and please join us.

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

Be A Blessing

BLESS YOU! We all say it after someone sneezes. Any idea what it is we’re saying? What is a “Blessing”? And why would we wish a blessing on someone else? KCRC’s girls club, known as GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting The Saviour), had as their theme this year, “BE A BLESSING”. And what, pray tell, is that??? Join us as we wonder about it, and dig into the meaning of their theme bible verse 2 Corinthians 9:8.

Go ahead and find a bible, either print version or online or app. Flip to 2 Corinthians 9:8. Then download the podcast and join the conversation.

Who Am I? Victorious!

Life is a battle.
Who among us has not muttered that under our breath at one time or another?
We’ve said it, and felt it. And it’s true.
Life IS a battle. But not a battle we need fear. Those who have committed their lives to Jesus, following and trusting him can rest in the assurance that they will win. |
In the end, they will be VICTORIOUS!!
So, that raises some questions – like, “Who is the enemy?” “Are there strategies we need to follow in order to find that victory?” “Do we get spiritual gear and armor to fight the battle?”
And that all is the focus of this, the last of our winter teaching series here at KCRC, “Who Am I?”.
We’re going to dig into Ephesians 6:10-24 helps us understand that.
Who Am I? Victorious!

Go ahead and find a bible, either print version or online or app. Flip to Ephesians 6:10-24. Then download the podcast and the study guide and dig in.

Who Am I? Suffering!

“Dear God, she is such a good person.
She’s such a good person.
Why does she have to suffer so much?
IT’S NOT FAIR!!”

Ever found yourself saying or praying something like that?
Most of us probably have, somewhere along the way.
Suffering – it’s something that sticks in our throat.
We can’t accept it as normal or right.
We fight against it.
And that’s a good thing to do.
But – the reality is, suffering is all around us. None of us make it through life without some experience of suffering.
In fact, those who ground their spiritual identity in Jesus ought to EXPECT suffering to be part of the deal.
It simply is.
Ephesians 3:1-13 helps us understand that.
The message from March 31 explores how suffering fits into our lives, and how we can keep (or lose) focus in the middle of battling suffering.

Join us as we explore this difficult teaching.

Go ahead and find a bible, either print version or online or app. Flip to Ephesians 3:1-13. Then download the podcast and the study guide and dig in.
