The church can be messy at times. But it's a beautiful mess. That's because Jesus is involved.Read More
During the summer months, the Karis Church elders encourage the church to read through one book together. This serves to bring us all together as we learn more about a specific topic.
This year, they have chosen Praying Together: The Priority and Privilege of Prayer in our Homes, Communities and Churches by Megan Hill.
As Megan says in the introduction, "...this book is a call to each one of us to consider the praying together we have done and are doing and hope to do: the childhood dinner-time prayers, the youth-group prayer vigils, the spontaneous prayer in dorms rooms and parking lots and at the back of the church...This book is a call to pray together and to keep praying together with renewed energy."
We hope you'll join with us this summer as we read through Praying Together. We have copies available on Sunday mornings for the discounted price of $5.
Grab a book and get a friend to read with you. Let's read together and pray together this summer.
first would like to share several ways that I have received KINDNESS through families from Karis. Every time our Missional Community meets at my home, Timothy, Sarah, Janice, Liz and Joseph scrub my kitchen clean and tidy up the messes made. They ask me how I am doing, pray with me when I’m melting down and babysit my children, over and over again. Countless times my friend Maureen has watched my girls. She has bought me post-pregnancy clothes when I didn’t have time to (and didn’t even ask!). She’s dropped off everything from toys to school supplies to food. I could go on forever with stories of so many people showing me kindness.
But why are these people caring about me, treating me with kindness? I think, and I am positive they would echo, that it’s because they have first been shown kindness.Read More
