We will be gathering in our worship center every Sunday morning beginning November 1, 2020. Once you arrive, you will be directed to an usher who will seat you in a safely distanced manner. You are not required to reserve your seat at this time and seating will be prioritized on a first-come, first-serve basis.
KCC will continue to offer live broadcasts of our Sunday Services and our Night of Prayer gatherings. If you are feeling unwell, traveling, or would prefer to worship from your home, we encourage you to join us as a community online! The live broadcast of our services will be available on our Church Online Platform and Facebook.
What can you expect?
As a church family, we are taking safe measures to ensure the protection of one another.
We have made a few simple changes to in-person gatherings.
“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” -Philipians 2:4
Safe Distancing (6ft)
Hand sanitizer stations

Distanced Seating (6ft)
You do not need to pre-register or reserve a seat to attend church. Once you arrive, you will be directed to an usher who will seat you in a section that is safely distanced from other households. Seating is offered on a first come first serve basis.
We are blessed to have an expansive worship center with over 2000 seats! We are only seating guests every other row with four (4) seats between each household. With these measures in place, we can accommodate between 400-500 guests.
We want everyone to stay healthy, so wearing a mask is required to enter the building. Our staff and volunteers will also be wearing masks for your protection. We encourage you to wear your personal mask if you have one. If you don't have a mask, we will have a limited supply of disposable masks available for you in our lobby at KCC Central.
If you are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons, we have a designated seating area to accommodate you. Please enter through Door L to be seated by an usher in the non-mask seating area. Our ushers will also have you "check in" with your name and contact information.
Entrances to the worship center will be limited to doors: I, J, K, and L. We encourage guests to go directly to an usher to be seated. We ask that you do not congregate in the lobbies for extended periods of time and, rather, to congregate outside the building in a safely-distanced manner. Doors throughout the building will also be propped open. We want to make the experience as touch-free as possible and will not be handing out any printed materials. Global Grounds will be closed and coffee will not be served. Outer restroom doors will be propped open where appropriate and restrooms will be cleaned and sanitized regularly.
Yes! Hand-sanitizing stations are available throughout the building.
We will be dismissed by sections and ask that we all continue to practice safe distancing in the lobbies, as we exit the building and outdoors.
Yes! KCC is committed to providing a safe and sanitary environment. Common areas, including restrooms, doors and hard surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized. Our HVAC system is equipped with recently replaced filters and provides continuous fresh outside air.

We love your families and are so excited to re-open Real Kidz. Our Real Kidz programming will phase in starting with children K-5th grade. At this time, we will be able to accommodate a maximum of 20 children. We will invite parents to pre-register their kids early in the week, on a first come first serve basis. Other offerings such as preschool child care, nursery, and special needs programming will be available at a later time. Weekly videos and content will continue to be sent out each week through email and our Facebook page. Contact the church via email or at 616.455.1740 to be added to our mailing list.
