Flamingo Bowl Event held March 10, 2024.

For our ‘Easter Dinner with a Twist’ fundraiser to support Brown Memorial’s food pantry in Syracuse, over $500 worth of wipes were contributed and almost $670 collected for the purchase of hams.

Rehearsal for the next puppet show, a peek backstage!  1/17/2024.

On December 17th, the children, adults, and elders worked together to “green” King of Kings for Christmas. Fun and fellowship was enjoyed by all.

December 17th was the day of The Sunday School Christmas Pageant. The children narrated, acted, and sang their way into the hearts of all who attended!

Dozens of bags of items for Thanksgiving meals were delivered, plus $700 in cash, to Food Pantry Director, Quincy Stockton, on November 13th.

On November 12, 2023, Pastor Rebecca Truland was installed as the pastor of King of Kings Lutheran Church. It was a beautiful service and lots of food to enjoy afterward.

November 5, 2023 was All Saints Sunday. King of Kings remembered those who we lost over the past year. Candles were lit and names were shared.

On November 4th, we had a Game Night. Fun was had by all!

King of Kings had a well-attended service for Pastor Rebecca’s first Sunday with us, October 22, 2023. The puppets also joined us for their monthly lesson.

Fall Fun Night was held on Saturday, October 14th, with costumes, games, crafts, and food. A fun time was had by all.

King of Kings thanks our Transitional Pastor, Rev. Gail Wolling, for her faithful guidance since January of 2023. It has been a pleasure!

September 24th was a happy day for Scarlett Grace and her family at her baptism. Welcome to King of Kings, Scarlett!

We said goodbye on September 3rd to King of King’s Director of Faith Formation, Maria Jackson, who is leaving us for a full-time job opportunity.  Thank you, Maria, for helping us to keep on track the past year!

On August 27th, Jonah was baptized surrounded by his parents, sister, two sets of grandparents, uncle, aunts, etc.  What a glorious day for all of us!

Our first Splish, Splash & Laughs was held on August 17th at King of Kings. It was a beautiful, not too hot day for those who attended. Not only were there games where we got wet but also a chance to show off our artistry!

Elizabeth and Jacob are the high school graduates that were honored on July 23rd. They served as Communion Assistants during the service and then were given blankets to bring with them to college to keep them warm, safe, and wrapped in the love of all of us here at King of Kings as they continue their life journey.

The trash cans were filled to the top and joyfully received by the Interfaith Works warehouse team. Once again, the King of Kings’ community responded to a need with “We’ve got this” and over $1,600 in supplies were donated to assist refugee families. Special thanks to Thrivent for helping support this effort with an Action Team Grant.

Sunday School concluded on June 11th with a garden planting party with ten youth. We planted over 30 squash sprouts that will provide a fall harvest for the food pantry.

Returning for the first time since 2019, our Annual Church Picnic with Yoder Chicken (the best in the world! Just ask us.) We enjoyed hot dogs, side salads and dishes, homemade desserts and ice cream, face painting, balloon animals, and the kids playing on the swings and slides.

Our awesome women’s group is sponsoring a collection of household items to fill 15 large trash cans for the warehouse at InterFaith Works for the Refugee Resettlement program. As you can see, those items are starting to arrive. Keep up the good work, King of Kings!

WOW!! An SUV packed with summertime needs made its way to our food pantry partners at Brown Memorial in Syracuse last week. Great work, King of Kings. (Continued contributions are always welcome)

Our First Communion class this year was small but mighty!  Congratulations.

Interfaith Works’ Refugee Resettlement program always needs more volunteers/furniture/sheets/towels/etc. to furnish apartments in Syracuse for incoming new Americans.  Here are some pics.

So thankful for the generosity of our King of Kings’ family. This was April 3rd’s delivery to Interfaith Works. It was received with excitement as this week two families arrive from Syria and their apartments are being set up starting tomorrow. Thanks to Pat Lebel and Betsy Herpich for heading this up, and to Syracuse for being a Sanctuary/Safe City.



Thanks to Bill Myers who built this new podium for guests to sign our visitors’ book.
