A Letter from Pastor Wayne
Dear Kirk Family,
This morning I read in Psalm 40 “The Lord is great!” But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.”
We are living in unprecedented times. Our focus needs to be on the Lord and His faithful plan for us. Your Kirk staff continues to do this.
We will continue to have our worship services online for the foreseeable future. The services will be at our regular worship times, 9:00 for Traditional, and 10:30 for Contemporary. You will once again receive an email telling you where to go and access the services.
I want to encourage you to continuously check this page and follow us on our social media accounts for the latest information.
We are adapting to our new normal and are adjusting the way we can share Christ’s love with each of you. We are praying for you.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns that you may have. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our pastoral team and ministry leaders are here for you during this time.
Yours in Christ,
You can access our Sunday morning services by using the “Online Service” button below. The online service will be available during the normal worship times of 9:00-10:00 a.m. and 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Below the online service button you will find a button that will direct you to all of our past services. If you would like to watch just the sermon part of the service, you can view that on Mondays by using the “Sermon” button below. There are both audio and video versions of the sermon available.
Connection in the Midst of Isolation
Church is to be a place of connection. You cannot live faith on your own. As we face days of isolation and solitude as a means of prevention, we need to be reminded even more that we are not alone. As you have time, please take time to reach out to friends and family members. Let them know how you are doing and inquire as to how they are doing. In a few days, call them back. Make the promise now to be intentional about connecting with others.
As the days progress, we will share different ways you can connect with others without having to gather as a large body. We want you to know that you can be the church without ever stepping into the church building. If you have specific questions about connecting within The Kirk, please contact Carrie Lund, Connections Director.
How can we still give?
Although we are unable to meet in our physical building, we still want to care for one another. Part of caring for one another is contributing financially through our tithes and offerings. As the pastors of our church, the responsibility of taking care of our staff, our missionaries, and the bills is paramount to us. Making sure we are financially able to continue taking care of each of these areas in such an unprecedented time is another reason why your tithes are crucial.
You always have the option of mailing your contribution to the church office via check or cash. Our finance director, DiAnna Harp, will be coming in on a regular basis to retrieve any contributions.
Direct Deposit/Automatic Withdrawl
This process will move your contribution from your checking account to the church account automatically each month. You can set up recurring giving by clicking here. Go to “Give Now” and then click on “Set up recurring.” At such an imperative time, we cannot stress how beneficial it would be for you to set this up if you have not already done so. DiAnna can answer any questions you have about this process. You can reach her on her cell phone at 918.734.3763 or via email at email@example.com.
Giving online is a safe, convenient way for you to give your tithes and offerings from the convenience of your computer or phone. Simply go here and click the “Give Now” button. Again, if you have any questions regarding this process, feel free to contact DiAnna at 918.734.3763.
Families, we want to make sure you still have access to our Kids, Kiddos, and Students programming information. We will keep this area up-to-date with the information you need to access as a family. If you have any questions, please reach out to the respective director: Bonnie Connor (Kirk Kiddos Director), Jon Adams (Kirk Kids Director), Josh Lyle (Kirk Middle School Director), and Katelyn Adams (Kirk High School Director).
