New to Following Jesus?
Deciding to follow Jesus is a big step and one we believe is best celebrated in community. We would love to hear about your decision and celebrate with you by sending you a small gift!
One event changed everything. It changed the course of history. It can change our lives. More than 2,000 years ago Jesus miraculously rose from the dead. Two centuries later, His resurrection is still radically changing lives: healing to the broken, peace to the restless, and hope to the hopeless. Join us this Easter at Kfirst as we celebrate the resurrection power of Jesus.
This year, Kfirst is going to introduce a new approach for our church in holding a Tenebrae service on Good Friday. The word Tenebrae is Latin for “shadows” or “darkness.” It can also be translated as “night” or “death.” The Tenebrae service is a tradition in Christian history that helps us recognize the intimacy of the Last Supper, the tension of Christ’s betrayal and trials, and the power of the crucifixion of our Lord. We often rush through Friday looking forward to Sunday and we miss out on the moment that transformed history. As we read the scriptures recounting the story of Jesus, we will periodically lower the lights to step into this dark moment and embrace the depth of what happened at the cross.
Child dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express publicly your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, so your child will develop a desire to love God and love others.
Current Series:The Last Week
Some call it Holy Week. Others call it Passion Week. Regardless of the term, this week is the week that transformed the world. In this series, we dive into the last week of Jesus’ life here on earth to challenge our hearts and renew our minds. We take the series “The Last Week” and allow the last days of His life, His brutal death, and His glorious resurrection to shape us and compel us to live for Him
