This past weekend, we stepped out of our Ephesians series for our Decade of Grace celebration. Two weeks ago, I looked back. This past Sunday, I looked ahead. You can listen to the audio of both here.
For our Decade of Grace celebration, we're asking God to kickstart our next 20 years of ministry through the Legacy Fund. Would you consider giving? You can visit here to contribute or mail contributions to Karis Church (c/o Legacy Fund), P.O. Box 572, Columbia, MO 65205.
WORLD - $30,000
The last third of the offering will fund three things from here in Columbia to the ends of the earth. Some will fund potential New Partners that we’re looking into internationally. Part will go directly to our Current Partners - those we’ve sent or are sending to Brazil, Japan, and elsewhere. Still some of the funds will go into our Church Planting Fund as we seek to plant new congregations locally.
It’s common in the Church for us to erect walls that separate us from our brothers and sisters and keep our neighbors out. How can we refocus our lives on the Gospel and find unity in Christ?
Join us for the next edition of Lead School as Lead Pastor Kevin Larson takes on this topic. We'll meet on Sunday, April 24 at 6:00 p.m. at the Imago Gallery & Cultural Center (1020 East Broadway).
If you missed our previous Lead School on Racial Reconciliation, you can listen to the recording here.
On Saturday, April 23, over 30 churches in Columbia are banding together to love our city. They’re laboring, quite literally, to show that they, together, are For Columbia.
Karis Church gets to be part of this exciting event! We’ll be serving our city and meeting needs by fixing houses, painting, yard work, and other activities.
If you would like to be involved, sign up using this page by April 14. If you want to make sure you get a t-shirt, go ahead and sign up by April 12.
You’ll be contacted with details about your assignment, but Karis will be primarily serving in the First Ward.

What does it take for lasting change to take root in your life?
During the Karis Women's Retreat, we will work through the concepts taught in the book, How People Change, by Timothy Lane and Paul David Tripp. This book explains the biblical pattern for change in a clear, practical way you can apply to the challenges of daily life.
We'll challenge and support one another as we strive to experience true transformation, and together we’ll experience the #TransformingGrace of Christ.
Join us for the Karis Women's Retreat on Saturday, April 30, from 8:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Karis Westside (1703 W Worley).
You are also invited to join us Friday night, April 29, at 7:00 p.m., at Cheddar’s Restaurant to kick off the retreat with laughter and good food.
Register for the retreat here.
There is no cost to attend the retreat. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, but you are responsible for your own meal on Friday night.
Share your experience leading up to and during the retreat by using the hashtag #TransformingGrace.
