THE KIRK IS 50!
It has been a very special year at Kirk of the Hills since we are celebrating 50 years as a church and ministry to St. Louis. It has been 50 years of displaying the gospel to our neighbors and our city and it has been 50 years of Student Ministry at the Kirk and we are very grateful for that. We are very thankful that there were willing people to answer a call to plant the Kirk, to join the Kirk, and establish a youth ministry at the Kirk because we are the inheritors of that. Come and join us this Sunday for a time of celebration and worship during our 10am worship service that will commemorate the 50 years as a church and God’s faithfulness to us as congregation throughout these decades.
A ROYAL FEAST
Easter is the reason for the church and we want more than one day to celebrate that. Can you blame us? Let’s keep the party going. Join us Wednesday the 24th for our Easter Party. We want to truly celebrate why we have a relationship with any of you and that is because of the Resurrection of our King Jesus, which, at the very least, deserves a party. We have a feast planned, a game planned, and worship experience planned all to celebrate Easter and its meaning.
THE STUDENT MINISTRY IS HEADED TO JAPAN
We are really beginning to make preparations for our missions trip to Nagoya, Japan. If you are wanting to know more about where we are going, what we are doing, and how you can support us as a team, please join us Sunday, April 28th @ 5pm at the Kirk. It is a free event, but there will be options to purchase tickets that will provide a more enhanced experience of the festival. Mark your calendars for the last Sunday in April. If you want to learn more about our trip or find ways to support the team in the meantime check out our webpage.
The month of May always marks our transition from our regular programs and events into our Summer calendar. Much of the month is vacant and that is intentional to prepare for summer and for you all to prepare for the end of the school year. However, we do hold one event and that is our Senior Night. It is a time to celebrate our seniors and give them a night that they deserve. Much of what has been normal for most of their lives is about to change, either drastically or minimally. Graduation is a marker that should not go unnoticed and we want to celebrate our seniors for their steadfastness and perseverance that is often required of high school seniors. We also want to give them a message that will encourage and prepare them more for what is next to be faithful stewards of the Christian faith. Join us on May 5th.
SUMMER SIGN UPS
Keep em’ coming! We want everyone to have a chance to sign up for our two big summer events. These are incredible opportunities to dive deeper into God’s Word and deeper into relationship with God’s people.
