1,372 diapers on January 5th. Thanks to Thrivent, the Sunday School was able to purchase diapers for the food pantry. Thanks to the congregation’s generosity, we were able to repackage the diapers and include a board book in each package as a gift for the child that receives them!
“The Nativity” is an evolution of the outdoor Living Nativity and the Sunday School pageant. The children, as usual, were all worthy of an Oscar for their acting skills. They were assisted by some teens and an adult or two. Afterwards, we served everyone drinks and cookies, just in time to send all the young ones home all sugared up!
King of Kings’ newest member joined us December 8th. Michele Hayes has been visiting with us for a few months and had already jumped in with both feet. However, a birdie told us that now she’s a member of our congregation, she plans on doing more things?! Thank you, Holy Spirit, for the gift of this energetic, vibrant woman.
Our 13th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner was served on November 28th. This event is a blessing for the members of the congregation and we certainly hope it also is for our community.
Over 20 Thanksgiving Baskets were packed up and driven to those in need on Sunday, November 24th.
Sunday, November 16th, was Craft Day, sponsored by the Ladies’ Group. Creative ideas abound! Plan on joining us next time.
Our young families group hosted a Halloween Party on Sunday, October 27th. Lots of food, crafts and games.
October 25th. We are off to a great start with our Thrivent Food drive having collected 220 food items so far. We are hoping to reach our goal of 500 items on Sunday to finish out this project during the month of October and receive the $500 check for St. Paul’s food pantry. UPDATE: We did it! St. Paul’s Food Pantry will be receiving a $500 check! Good work, King of Kings!
September 15th was this year’s opening of Sunday School. It looks like our children are ready to not only have fun, but to learn about Jesus.
Our annual fall picnic was held on September 8th. The weather was sunny and not too hot, perfect for the kids to play outside. The adults were enjoying hot dogs, burgers, salads, and desserts!
So wonderful to worship with our siblings in Christ as a unified ELCA Lutheran presence from five congregations at St. Paul’s on August 25th.
On dumpster day, enough work was accomplished to fill most of its capacity. It’s strange that the only picture taken was this one! We also obviously had some fun, too.
Our new sign started to become a reality on June 21st and is complete today, August 7th. Beautiful, isn’t it?
The Senior High youth and advisors traveled to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, July 14th through 20th for their annual mission trip. Looks like not only good works were accomplished but a good time was had by all.
June 9th was a busy day for our sole Confirmand and his parents. God bless you on this important day of your life.
April 7th was the date of our Easter Party/Egg Hunt for the Sunday School kids. Looks like lots of fun!
Sunday School is busy every Sunday teaching our children in different fun ways about Jesus.
