Christmas Weekend at King’s Grant

That’s right, breakfast together as a community of faith on December 23. Sunday school classes are being asked to prepare the breakfast dishes. Come, enjoy, eat, fellowship, then gather in the sanctuary for worship at 10:00 that morning.

On Christmas Eve, we will gather at 5:00 pm for a time of candles, carols, and communion. Make King’s Grant a part of your family’s Christmas tradition.

Shine the Light on Halloween Night

October 31 is on Wednesday so we are planning a big community event! Rather than having something where we invite the community to our campus, we are sending our people into the community.

So, plan on eating with us at 5:00 on October 31 – (Catered Pollard’s Chicken).

Then, at 6:00, we will deploy to our six host homes in our community. These homes are not hosting members into their homes but into their driveway or cul-de-sac. As families with children roam the neighborhood in search of candy and treats, our families will be shining the light as good neighbors, meeting new friends and neighbors, bragging on costumes, meeting parents, and handing out a goodie bag from the church.

It’s simple, just be a good neighbor out and about in the community, and live life on mission!

PS… to choir members, you have the night off from rehearsal!

5 easy steps toward missional living (an example of M3):

  1. Visit a designated host home after our Mid-Week Café meal. All host homes are posted. [The Mid-Week Café opens as usual at 5pm. Everyone will need to report to host homes by 6pm]
  2. Grab your outdoor chairs, and head to a host home to help build community.
  3. Have some fun and hand out “Shine The Light on Halloween Night” gifts and candy.
  4. When possible, have conversation with families making the traditional Halloween stops (conversations to introduce yourselves to the community, and to make meaningful connection).
  5. Enjoy building community with your church family and any new friends God brings your way (and intentionally get to know your church family members better).

Coffee with the Pastor October 21

If you are new to King’s Grant, join us on Sunday October 21 to meet with Ken and the other pastors for some coffee and conversation. We will gather in the Welcome Center for some fellowship at 9:30, and then invite attendees to stick around for a conversation with our pastor, and you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions about Christ or our church.

We will bring some donuts, too, so an RSVP would be helpful. Just text the word COFFEE to 757-330-4484 to let us know you’re coming. Make sure to respond to the follow-up text and tell us who to expect!

Another way to RSVP (since you’re already on our website) is to fill out this online form:

Hurricane Relief Project 2018

Dear Church Family:

Hearts are heavy for our neighbors in the Carolinas who have suffered the impact of Hurricane Florence. Our church family will soon be collecting and forwarding funds for larger disaster relief programs through our Virginia Baptists. 

However, there is an opportunity with immediate needs in the small North Carolina town of Lake Waccamaw (Home town of Ellie Zecchini). Ellie has been in contact with the town. She is friends with the mayor and has discovered a need for some items to help with clean-up efforts. Due to limited amount of space to take items directly to NC, the following are requested:

  • Gloves (Work, Cleaning, Vinyl and/or Latex)
  • Trash Bags (Heavy Duty and/or Yard Waste)

We are asking for donations of these items this Sunday, September 23. There will be designated collection points located in the church. Ellie will personally deliver these items on Monday.

Many of the houses in Lake Waccamaw have flood damage. Some areas are still not accessible. If items cannot get through, Ellie will deliver all donations to Bayside HS for transportation into North Carolina. 

Thank you for your partnership.
