Here is an Invitation … for you.
Ever notice how happy people seem to be around Christmas time? Everyone seems to be smiling, rushing around shopping for presents, attending parties, and looking forward to the various events of the season.
But what about those of us who aren’t quite feeling it? And what about those of us who are downright blue during the holidays? Sometimes there’s a reason – the loss of a loved one, or other memories we’d really rather not remember, and sometimes, it’s just what’s going on in the world around us, that beats us down and causes us not to enjoy the things we used to enjoy – like celebrating Christmas.
Where is our hope? Can we be honest without bringing everybody else down? Is it okay to feel this way? Is it normal!?
Ever ask those questions? If so, you might want to attend a special service:
A Blue Christmas – A Service of Hope (For Those Who are Grieving)
Wednesday, December 20th
Come and share an honest look at the Hope of Christmas…
Celebrate in a new way.
And be comforted
We at King’s Grant pray you will have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving weekend! Count your many blessings.
Remember that the office is closed from Wednesday at noon through Friday this week.
Please remember your assignments for Sunday – teachers, preschool volunteers, musicians, sound board guys… you know who you are. Our worship services don’t happen without our committed leaders.

After all this talk about church and vision over the past few months, it’s time to make this practical.
- What are the next logical steps to develop this equipping model of ministry?
- How is the church designed to free members to find and fulfill what God has called them to do?
- What are the next steps in personal spiritual development?
- What is difference between a map and a menu?
- What is the difference between a destination and a direction?
- What is the difference between training volunteers and training leaders?
- How would you describe our current leadership pathway?
- How can we get this vision from a pipe dream to a pipeline?
- Who will succeed you in your ministry after you are gone?
Beginning on Wednesday, October 25, we will have a 7-session video and discussion series on what is called “Leadership Pipeline.” Why? Because of this new vision Ken has been casting, and what we are calling “the next” for King’s Grant (development of an equipping culture), it cannot not happen apart from leadership development.
These video sessions are from the 2016 leadership pipeline conference and will cover these topics…
- Conviction, Culture, Constructs (Eric Geiger)
- A Vision for Pipeline and Your Vision’s Pipeline (Will Mancini)
- Strategy (Kevin Peck)
- Collaboration (Jenni Catron)
- Who Moved My Pulpit? And Other Change Issues (Thom Rainer)
- Leading Leaders (Carey Nieuwhof)
- Discipleship (Paul Tripp)
It all starts this Wednesdays October 25 in the sanctuary at 6:15.
