Local Church Report: Kirkland Family Church

Happy New Year from Kirkland Family Church! This last month has been a full month at KFC. The month started off with our Annual Dessert Concert. This is a concert put on by the Kirkland Family Church Worship team and many of the KFC members participate to help make the night successful. The theme this year was "The Sounds of Christmas". It was a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas season. There were many familiar faces in the audience as well as quite a few people that have never been to the church before. It was a sell out and we are looking forward to next year's concert.
The following week, we had our monthly pancake breakfast for all those who want to have a great breakfast before Sunday School begins. Our Sunday school classes are going great with several special topics being taught. Debbie Yaros taught a 2 month long class for the teens based on Dave Ramsey's Generation Change. This is a series geared toward teens and young adults on how to be good stewards and handle money responsibly. The class concluded in December and was well-received by all. Pam Murkerson began a series on Esther for the Ladies Sunday School class following the series of DVDs by Beth Moore. This series will continue for the next month and all the ladies are enjoying it. The Men's class and children's Sunday School classes have been full and enjoying the messages that their teachers are bringing. Our teens are also getting a remodeled Sunday School room, spearheaded by Jim Brown and Allen Cabales and it is nearly finished. 
December is a month of fundraising at Kirkland Family Church. Along with the Dessert Concert, we have an annual Pledge Drive, that we call the Stocking Fundraiser. The people of KFC are generous givers and we exceeded our goal for this fundraiser. This helps us kick off 2013 on the right foot, financially.
It has been a blessed year for Kirkland Family Church. There are several who have had health challenges but God is bringing them through. There are several new faces in the congregation, and the entire church family has been excited to welcome them. KFC is looking forward to 2013 and experiencing the blessings that God has for each one this year.
Ladies- Mark your Calandars for the annual Ladies Tea at Kirkland Family Church. We will hold this event on February 16th. This will be a fun day of tea, fellowship, good food, and shopping. We will have approx. 8 vendors in attendance of various types. More ticket information will be forthcoming, but save that date. Tell your friends, your sisters, mother, daughters, everyone! It will be a great time.
