WE NEED YOU! Mark your calendar to join King of Kings for the Crop Walk Grab your tennis shoes and walk for hunger! Date: Saturday, May 4th. Time: 10:00am
Place: Cedar River Trail - Liberty Park to Ron Regis Park and Back (6 miles)

For 50 years Crop Hunger Walks have brought the Community together to overcome poverty! King of Kings is one of twenty churches participating in the 2019 Renton CROP hunger walk. The money you raise will help support ARISE, Area of Renton Interfaith Shelter Endeavor, several Renton community services and global hunger programs. Not sure if walking is for you, too busy…that’s okay. You can donate to support our team.  King of Kings walks Saturday, May 4th because we have our congregational meeting on May 5th. The actual Renton REACH walk is on May 5th.

PERSONAL CARE KITS There is a great need for basic health care items in many parts of the world.  LWML is holding a health care drive through Tuesday May 1.  Here is a list of what is needed in each kit:

  • Two bath size bars of soap, 4-5 oz. Any brand in original wrapper.
  • One bath size towel (approx. 52”x27”) dark color recommended.
  • One adult size tooth brush in its original packaging.  Multi packs are fine.
  • One sturdy comb, removed from packaging.
  • One metal nail clipper, removed from packaging.

This year we are asking people to donate one entire kit, instead of individual items.  There is a big basket in the Narthex for donations.  Watch for specials when shopping.  Thank you for your continued support.

THERE IS A FLOER CHART UP on the bulletin board in the hallway leading to the Parish Hall.  Please consider commemorating a special event or loved one, by providing flowers for the altar

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - We need two new members to complete the Preschool Board.  The Preschool Board meets 3-4 times a year and establishes and oversees the management of King of Kings Preschool, including budget (payroll, tuition rates, expenses).  The Board will be a critical factor in the coming months as we are in the process of hiring a new director since Deb Timm will be stepping down effective June 15, 2019.  What an exciting time to be part of this board as we experience change in leadership and direction for King of Kings Preschool.  If you are interested in becoming a part of this team please leave your name with the church office (425-226-1480) or the preschool office (425-255-8520).

MAT VOLUNTEER OPENINGS Please consider volunteering to lead a church MAT position in Education, Outreach, Worship or Fellowship. To learn more about these opportunities to serve at King of Kings contact me or a member of the MLG. Ralph Linderman. 

AROMA NEUTRAL/SCENT FREE: This is one of the comments from one of our members regarding fragrances and scents, “Pastor, when I smell certain things, my nasal and bronchial passages constrict and I have to leave. If it gets bad, I have to use an emergency inhaler or maybe even go to the emergency room.” Thank you for being considerate of the needs of others and working towards a more aroma neutral/scent free worship environment.

Luke 24:6-7“He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” So Jesus is risen, but is that Good News? What if He is mad at us for betraying Him, for running away at Gethsemane, and for not believing He would rise? The Good News is not just that Jesus is risen but that He is risen to bless us. There is no need to be alarmed. He still calls us His friends and brothers and means to bring us through death to resurrection as well. The Lord is risen; He is risen indeed!



VBS is coming! August 5-9. Registration begins May 1.
