Community

While KPC is composed of people from all across Michiana, we take seriously our call and commitment to seek the peace of the neighborhood in which we’ve been placed. Our involvement in the community takes a number of forms, including sharing life with our neighbors throughout the week and offering a number of community events throughout the year.

For dates and times, see events.

Each Tuesday (1:00–4:00 p.m.) we provide a food and coat pantry out of our community house. While appointments are preferred, neighbors in need are welcome to stop in for a box of food or warm clothes.

Every other Wednesday between 5:30 and 7:00 p.m., we offer a free, home-cooked meal in the basement of the church. Jubilee meals are a low-key time for food, fellowship, and family.

CALENDAR

Once a month on Monday night at 7:30, we gather at the community house to pray for needs within the church and community.
Once a month, we have a low-key house gathering for young adults without kids.
Twice during the summer, we throw outdoor block parties on the church property. Our block party to kick off the summer involves refreshments, games, and other activities, while our block party to wind down the summer involves BBQ and blues music.
We devote a special week during the summer for kids from the community to join us each evening for games, kids’ songs, crafts, snacks, and Bible stories. Our goal is for all kids who come to know that they are safe, accepted, and loved by God and the church.
One Sunday during the summer, we move our service out of the sanctuary and onto the basketball court.
During the last weekend before the fall school semester, we provide a back-to-school-store at the church. School items are sold at a 90 percent discount to our neighbors with children in their care.
During a weekend in December, we provide a Christmas store at the church. Children’s Christmas presents are sold at a 90 percent discount to our neighbors with children in their care.
