Good Friday Gathering
March 30th, 2018
Good Friday gives us a moment to pause before the celebration of Easter. Before Christ was seated at the right hand of God, He bled and died on the cross. Before He rose victoriously from the grave, He was laid to rest in the tomb. Before we enter into a relationship with Christ, we agonize over the depths of our sin.
Join us at 6:30 pm for a time of singing and prayer as we pause and reflect on the death that comes before new life. This is a family-friendly event, and children are invited to attend the Gathering with you as there will be no childcare offered during this Gathering.
Easter Egg Hunt
March 31st, 2018
Karis Church is excited to announce our very first Easter Egg Hunt! In a hope to serve ALL families in Columbia, our special needs egg hunt will start at 9 am with a hunt specifically designed for children who may struggle to participate in traditional egg hunting events. This hunt includes allergy-friendly eggs, as well as a quieter, slower-paced environment for children who have sensory processing complications or use adaptive equipment like wheelchairs. At 10:30, our traditional Easter egg hunt begins and is open to all children. Please join us at 1703 West Worley for a morning of Easter fun! If you are a member of Karis Church and you would like to volunteer to serve at this event, then please register!
Easter Sunday Gathering and Baptisms
April 1st, 2018
Join us as we celebrate the risen King Jesus! On April 1, Karis Church will gather together at 9 am and 11 am for prayer, musical worship and a special Easter message from Pastor Kevin Larson. In addition, a short family photo session with a professional photographer will be available for FREE to all who attend the Gathering on Easter Sunday!
As we worship the Savior who rose from the dead, we also celebrate our own transition from death to life with Baptism. At 10:30 am, Karis Church will have a time set aside for Baptisms. If you are interested in being Baptised on Easter Sunday, please contact us at email@example.com for more information!
"Restoring Lost Glory " Marriage Conference
April 20th - April 21st, 2018
What would happen if we believed our main role in marriage was joining God in restoring lost glory – the very majesty and beauty of God - in our spouse? How would this vision affect how we love, how we enjoy, how we grieve, and how we serve our spouse? How would this vision affect how we strive and fight FOR our spouse and our marriage? What if we believed God wants us to join Him in restoring in our spouse the glory of God?
Join Karis Church on April 20-21st as we welcome Pastor John Ryan (The Summit, St. Louis) and his wife, Fran for this encouraging weekend. Together we will discover how Christians can practically join God in this powerful and beautiful call. Registration is FREE for individuals willing to serve in childcare during the last session of the conference.
