JOIN IN THE FUN as King of Kings hosts Taproot Theater Company’s Touring Play Improv in a Pear Tree, November 25th at 2:00pm.  Going home for the holidays is a special sort of adventure full of road trips, family traditions and the crazy characters we call friends and family. This year, Taproot’s Improv Team is bringing you the story of a pair of newlyweds sharing their first Christmas. Using suggestions from the audience, the actors create the characters, traditions and circumstances to create a hilarious and unexpected holiday story you won’t forget. No two performances are the same! Improv in a Pear Tree is written by Emily Shuel and directed by Danny Walter.

INK CARTRIDGES – We are again collecting ink cartridges.  Staples allows us to turn in 10 every month for cash to be used as credit at the store.  In July, we had $20 to spend, which was used to purchase school supplies for LWR.  We can also

purchase other office supplies needed for the church, Sunday school, or a committee.

Matthew 22:5 – ‘But they paid no attention and went off, one to his farm, another to his business.’ The invitation to join God in His feast and in His work is easily ignored. The rest of life seems so much more pressing, and we always think that there will be another time when we can catch back up with God. But what joys are we missing when we set aside God’s invitation to join Him in His plans and purposes? What inheritance are we trading for the world’s bowl of pottage?







What is FIRST LEGO League Jr.?

It’s never too early to discover STEMFIRST LEGO League Jr.* is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO®.

The really cool thing about FIRST LEGO League Jr. is…all skill levels are welcomed and needed, technical or non-technical.


We will have two seasons next year.  One in the fall and one in the Spring. 

Would you like your child to be considered for a team? Email Suzy at to be added to the list.
