Walking In Truth and Love: KCRC Online Service for August 2, 2020.

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again. It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out. Matthew 5:13
In our walk as apprentices of Jesus, its not always easy to be salt and light to our fragile hurting world. How do we walk in truth and love?

This week we welcome as our guest, Pastor Joe Groeneveld. Pastor Joe invites us into the small but relevant book of 2 John. In this book John encourages believers to commit to the truth with much love in their hearts. There is a sermon study guide available this week. You are invited to download it, grab your bibles and join us.

Blessed Are The Peacemakers: KCRC Online Service for July 26, 2020.

What is Shalom? Rev. Neil Plantinga gives this definition: “Shalom is much more than peace of mind or the ceasefire of enemies, it is described as universal wholeness and delight, and reigning over all is the earth’s Creator and Savior who opens doors and opens hearts and welcomes all of us as children of God.” Wow!

The theme of our service this week is Peace, what the prophets called Shalom. Rev. Bernie Bakker is sharing God’s word from the text of Matthew 5:9: Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called Children of God.

As Christ followers we are called to be peacemakers and to work at reconciliation and restoration….which may be costly. Grab your bibles we also will be studying 2 Corinthians 5: 11-21, we hope you can join us.

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.
