Sermons

In September 2017  our congregation began an exciting adventure to better understand who God is, how God works, and who we are, through God’s story as told in the scriptures. For 31 weeks (breaking for a few rest stops) KPC Pastor, Rev. Sharyl Dixon will lead us as we explore The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People by Zondervan – Max Lucado (Foreword), Randy Frazee (Foreword).

During Sunday morning worship we will hear the good news in each chapter of The Story. Our ongoing Bible studies provide an opportunity for conversation and discussion in groups to consider how God’s story connects to our own stories.

You may follow The Story on the Sermon Archive by following the links for the audio and written versions of sermons, or the links to the YouTube readings of chapters from The Story by LydiaGrace Quine-Espiritu Gray. Let us all continue to pray that this encounter with God’s word will transform us and our community.
