You Belong Here

There are so many reasons to get back to church, generally people come back due to a life change of some kind. Maybe it’s the calendar that brings change in your life. Whatever brings you back, we are here for you. May you find here peace, community, friendship, purpose, life, grace, and Jesus.


Join us this September during our M1-M2-M3 Emphasis…

[ read about our core values, Community, Faith, Love, and the M1-M2-M3 vision ]

With an M3 emphasis (member, minister, missions), what are the possibilities of actually recognizing all three components of the vision during September? Below could be a potential schedule. Take a look and let me know your feedback. We will also discuss this tomorrow in staff.

Celebrating M1. On Sunday, September 9, celebrate “Back to Church” Sunday, emphasizing the first of our core values – COMMUNITY, represented by M1 (MEMBER). The video presentation was wonderful, members explaining what community means to them.

Celebrating M2. On Sunday, September 30, emphasizing our second core value – FAITH, represented by M2 (MINISTRY). During this day we will celebrate and give special thanks to all who serve through KGBC (yes, this involves food).

Celebrating M3. Also on Sunday, September 30, we will emphasize our third core value – LOVE, represented by M3 (MISSION). This will be our Mission Sunday, sharing the call and opportunity for everyone to live a missional life. Many ministry/missions leaders will speak about what God is doing in their areas.

Our Vision Statement: We exist as a community of faith to extend the love of Christ and his kingdom in Virginia Beach and to the world.

CRI and Feed My Starving Children

We are partnering with Catalyst Resources International and Feed My Starving Children to raise money to send a crate of food to Guatemala. Your opportunity to give is this Sunday February 4 through our end of the service benevolent offering. Our goal is to fill a container, which will feed over 272,000 children at a cost of about $6200.

Here is the promo video we are showing on Sunday.

New Sign at JCOC

December Newsletter from Judeo-Christian Outreach Center:

“What projects would you like someone to take care of for you?” When you are a non-profit and never have enough money for all the needs you are aware of, it is answered prayer when a ministry asks you how they can help. That’s what Operation Inasmuch from King’s Grant Baptist Church did for JCOC recently. They removed items that could not be fixed and they repaired or replaced damaged items.

Come visit JCOC and you will notice one of their projects; we have a new sign that was donated and installed by them and it looks great! They also provided a large amount of clothing and 12 Welcome Home Baskets for JCOC clients moving into their new homes.

Thank you to the amazing volunteers from King’s Grant Baptist Church who worked on these projects; Anna Alexander, Heather Burner, Jim Cummings, Donald Downs, Bill Forbes, Ray Kirby, Foster Matter, Dan Reed, Dan Rush, and Kenny Toombs. A special thank you to Cheryl Douglas who coordinated Operation Inasmuch and Pastor Ken Pruitt for his and his church’s overall support of JCOC.

Our New Pastor

We are excited about Dr. Kenneth R. Pruitt and his family joining us at King’s Grant Baptist Church. Our pastor search team has been praying, seeking God, and diligently working for about 10 months.

The introduction weekend was March 10-12, and after the morning worship time on March 12, the church membership voted unanimously to call pastor Ken as our next senior pastor. The family is moving from Texas, and his actual start date has not been determined, but we have confidence that God’s timing is best. In the meantime, we continue to do the work that Christ has called us to do!
