CALLING ALL KPC YOUTH!!

Dear KPC youth,

Next Sunday after church people will be packing and decorating Thanksgiving boxes to go to food insecure families in the Gainesville area.

We are planning to have a youth-led fundraiser at the same time to donate funds to help food insecure families in developing countries. The amount of funds raised will determine what we are able to donate, ranging from a family of chickens ($25) to a pair of goats ($178) or perhaps even a cow ($450).

For the fundraiser, we will be preparing lunches that folks can purchase and either eat at the church as part of the decorating/packing party or take home with them to eat later. The lunches will be selling for $10 each and will include a salad and/or vegetable, rice, main dish, and dessert. Drinks will also be available for anyone decorating boxes.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you would like to help with the fundraiser, please come to the church kitchen between 9:30 and 10 am on Sunday, November 15. We will have all the groceries on hand for making the lunches and can use your help in putting them together. There will be plenty of tasks for everyone and most jobs require no experience with cooking. We will be prepping the meals during the church service so that they are ready to go when the service ends.

If you know you will be attending, it would be great to hear from you so that I have some idea of who to expect. However, you are also welcome to just show up on Sunday morning to help if you don’t know your availability ahead of time.

We look forward to seeing your skills in action to help with food insecurity both in Gainesville and in other countries.

Sincerely,

Joanna (for the KPC Mission Committee)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Session has discussed and decided that we will open to in-person services at 10 AM Sunday beginning 3/28/21
  • We ask that everyone continue the safety protocols currently in effect for the safety of all. For now there will be no congregational singing. However, if anyone would like to offer an appropriate solo (whether voice or instrument) please contact the Worship & Nurture Committee or the church office.
  • We will continue to record our services for posting to YouTube and the website.
  • We ask that those who plan to attend wear masks while on site and refrain from close personal contact [such as hugging] during this time to assure the safety of all attending.

 

  • You will be asked to social distance - 6 ft apart and only groups who have been quarantined in the same place during the pandemic permitted to sit together.

 

  • Communion elements will be prepared and served to you by assigned elders. We ask that no one be moving around at that time.
     
  • Remember please to watch for each other's safety. This is not a time to assert personal rights but a time to demonstrate our love and care for each other as God's family. Please abide by the safety guidelines.

 

  • If you need to use the facilities please limit numbers in the restroom to family units or a single individual and keep your mask on indoors.
  • If there is a bona fide medical reason you cannot wear a mask let the pastor know ahead of time and we will do our best to accommodate your need without jeopardizing your safety or the safety or others.
  • I know it is our nature to "visit a minute" at the close of service but please remember the safety protocols then as well.

 

  • For those of you who are not comfortable attending in person we are working on a live feed to YouTube and will try our best to have that ready for Oct 4. We will let you know if we can make that available. We will record the service and post it to YouTube as we have been doing these last months. It will be available that afternoon.
