May those words never lose their significance for us. They are the heart of the gospel message. They are the reason we worship the risen Christ. They are the proof that Jesus is our Lord and Savior, the Son of the Living God. As we anticipate Easter once again, we boldly proclaim to the world, “HE IS RISEN!” In the midst of sadness and depression, grief and mourning, “He is risen.” In the midst of heartache and pain, diagnosis and doctor’s visits, “He is risen.” In the midst of financial struggles, addition, and mental illness, “He is risen.” In the midst of stress, burdens, and pressures, “He is risen.” Those three words make such a difference for us, because despite the trials and tribulations we face, despite the headlines, despite the tragedies, we proclaim there is something more, something else, something other than what we experience in this world. Through Jesus Christ, we are saved; we are forgiven; we are reconciled, and we are given strength to face every situation life throws at us. 

Participate in Holy Week as we embark on this annual journey this Sunday. Celebrate with us on Palm Sunday, April 2, at 10:00 and receive a reminder that God is Enough!. Come to the Maundy Thursday service on April 6 for dinner at 5:30 and worship at 7:00 with communion and a Tenebrae service and receive a symbol of a loss or grief in your life. Join us on the most holy of days at our Easter services at 7:00 a.m. outside with communion, our 8:45 full contemporary service, and our 11:00 traditional service with added instruments. At our Easter services you will receive an Apostles’ Creed card as we explore the basics of the Christian faith and our own faith using this ancient creed. Join with your faith community in proclaiming that day and every day, “He is risen.” 

Holy Week and Easter is such a special time, a spiritual time, a central time in our faith. As we celebrate once again, ponder the wonder, the miracle, the blessing as we proclaim to the world, “HE IS RISEN!” And that makes all the difference. Happy Easter!

Grow Stronger, Shine Brighter, Love Deeper, Transform Your World,


We have so much beautiful music planned for Holy Week! Every area of the music ministry is preparing to bless the King’s Grant community of believers. This week on Palm Sunday, our King’s Kids will join the adults in a very uplifting celebration of Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem. On Maundy Thursday, the Chancel Bells and Sanctuary Choir will help lead us in a very meaningful journey to the cross. And Easter Sunday brings opportunities to experience worship in very different ways. Our sunrise service will provide an intimate setting outside at 7:00am, the Praise Team will lead contemporary worship at the 8:45am service with incredible high energy songs, and the traditional service at 11:00am brings majestic sounds from a wonderful guest chamber orchestra and our Sanctuary Choir. 

He Lives! And it is our hope that you are blessed beyond measure in the days to come. This is the most important story ever told. Our musicians of all ages have been earnestly rehearsing and invite you to join us in celebrating the amazing resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Musically Yours,

March Highlights


1)   Karen Pleas gave a brief update as to the work of the nominating committee. Based on this report, a congregational meeting is being called for Sunday, 4/30/2023 after the worship service to approve the class of 2026.

2)   The Worship ministry team will make a recommendation for the April session meeting as to what they feel is God’s will regarding the Fall Sunday morning worship schedule. Session will review the recommendation, discern the recommendation, and vote on the recommendation at the May or June session meeting. Timeline is important as KGPC staff will need adequate time to adjust to Session’s decision. Input from the congregation can be provided to any member of the worship ministry team prior to their 4/17/2023 meeting to discuss our Sunday schedule.

3)   A date for the Leadership Summit where we will discuss where we are being called to put our emphasis for next year has been set for Friday, 6/2/2023 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm and Saturday, 6/3/2023 from 8:00 am to 12:00.

4)   KGPC’s 60th Anniversary celebration will kick off at the 5/19/2023 Locals on the Lawn event. The balance of the anniversary celebration events will be announced as the 60th committee finalizes them. Service projects will be an important part of this celebration and will be tied in with each event.

The theme for the 60th is 60 YEARS…STILL SERVING!!”

The Apostles’ Creed

 I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.


Credo: I Believe…

Everyone has deep questions about the meaning of life. How do you search for the answers? What do you believe and why? In this Easter series we will examine the core Christian beliefs and why they matter using the clearest and most concise statement of the Christian faith, the Apostles’ Creed. Beliefs shape our identity, our worldview, and our purpose. In this six week series based on Adam Hamilton’s book, “Creed: What Christians Believe and Why,” we will search deeply for what we believe about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Forgiveness, Life Everlasting, and the Church. If you are curious about Christianity or want to go deeper in your faith, looking for answers to tough questions or wondering if faith really matters, join us as we search together for what we believe.

April 9 Easter Who Do You Say Jesus Is? Matthew 16:13-16; Matthew 28:1-15

A rabbi? A prophet? Lord? Christ? Savior? Who do you say Jesus is and why? On this Easter Sunday as we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection we take a close look at what Christians believe about this man, why they believe it, and why it matters. The Apostles’ Creed contains more about Jesus than anything else, focusing on his birth, death, and what comes after. We know what scripture says, but did he really descend to hell? What does it mean that he sits on the right hand side of God and judges the quick and the dead? We will break down the major statements about Jesus in the Creed and what those mean for us today

April 16 I Believe in God…Father…Creator Genesis 1:1-5; Psalm 19:1-4; John 20:16-17

Does God exist? How do we know? Who is God? What do we believe about God? The Creed describes God in two ways: Creator and Father. Scripture testifies that God is the Creator of heaven and earth. But doesn’t science say otherwise? Who are we to believe? How does nature testify to God? Jesus referred to God as Father throughout his ministry. What does Father mean for us and how does it shape our beliefs about God?

April 23 Come, Holy Spirit, Come  John 14:15-17, 25-26; Acts 2:1-4

Presbyterians aren’t quite sure what to do with the Holy Spirit. It seems like neither does the Apostles’ Creed as it contains one phrase, “I believe in the Holy Ghost…” So what exactly are we to believe about the Holy Spirit? Jesus sent this Spirit to us for a purpose, but what is it? Do the various names for the Spirit matter: Advocate, Paraclete, Spirit of Truth? What can we learn from Pentecost about the Holy Spirit? Our focus on the Holy Spirit may answer some of these questions…and may create new ones.

April 30 Forgiven to Be Forgiving Matthew 26:27-28; Matthew 18:21-35

We pray every week, “forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” What does that mean? Is God’s forgiveness of us contingent upon our forgiveness of others? The Apostles’ Creed states we believe in the forgiveness of sins. Why is that important? How does it impact our life and the way we treat those who have wronged us? How often are we to forgive and why does Jesus ask us to forgive others seventy seven times? We will explore how we are forgiven, why we are forgiven, and the necessity for us to forgive others.

May 14, 2023 What Happens When We Die? John 11:20-27; 

I Corinthians 15 (selected verses)

The Apostles’ Creed ends, “I believe in…the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.” Will we be resurrected? Jesus didn’t talk much about what happens when we die, but he did claim he was the Resurrection and the Life. What is the significance of that, both for him and for us? We wrap up our worship series diving into how believing in life after death shapes our life before death.

May 21 (ascension) Holy? Catholic? Church? Saints? Acts 4:32-35, I Peter 2:9-10a

The church is a bunch of people who come together to worship God. But is it more than that? The Apostles’ Creed talks about a holy, catholic church. What does that mean? What exactly is the church and the communion of saints? No offense but there aren’t too many saints in our church. So why does the church exist, why do we need to be a part of it, and what is its purpose? How does that affect who we are and what we do at KGPC?
