KCUCC values children. Children take part in worship during the Children’s Time at the front of the sanctuary with one of the ministers.
On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate communion and children may take communion whatever their age. On these special Sundays, children in kindergarten and older remain in the service with their families. Special worship bags containing activities just for them are located in the back of the sanctuary.
On Sundays when communion does not occur, children leave for Sunday School after the Children’s Time. Parents can pick up their children after the service in the Sunday School room next to the Social Hall. Our interactive Sunday school lessons give opportunities for spiritual growth to engage your child’s mind and heart and reflect the values we believe in and hold dear as outlined throughout this website. We have a “Safe Child” policy at KCUCC, which means two adults are with children at all times they are in our care. Also teachers have participated in “Safe Child” training and submitted to background checks.
Nursery care is available every Sunday for infants through preschool-aged children. Feel free to ask an usher for directions to the nursery or Sunday School room. For more information send an email at the link below!
Our Annual Kristkindl Markt is coming in December 2020. KKM is a German-themed holiday event that includes a Biergarten with live music and German food, homemade cookies sold by the pound, and the ever-popular Gingerbread House-making adventure for children that benefits Operation Breakthrough. Vendors will sell gifts for your holiday shopping. We hope to see you there. Hours are Friday 5 – 9, and Saturday 10 – 7.
KCUCC believes that the teachings of Jesus require us to work in our community through concrete acts of service and sacrificial giving of our resources. Throughout its history, our congregation has responded to the needs of its community in various ways, such as responding to the HIV/AIDS crisis by creating a major annual fundraiser for Good Samaritan Project and starting a childcare program for teenage mothers at Southwest High School. Today, we continue our work serving our community through a variety of ways.
