What's New?

NewKirk Christmas Bazaar

Make plans now to spend Saturday, December 1 at our annual Christmas Bazaar. From 9 AM – 3 PM we will have local vendors selling Craft items, Baked Goods and other items. Our youth will be selling chili and soup, plus we will have a hot cocoa and coffee bar for your refreshment.

Decoration Day

On Sunday, December 2, we will be decorating the Church for the Advent Season. Please plan to stay after the service to trim the tree and decorate the church. Sandwiches and sides will be provided for a light lunch. There will be a table set up for anyone wanting to make an Advent wreath. For more information contact Tina Lucas at tlucas921@yahoo.com.

Amazon Smile

As we enter the holiday shopping season, many people will be using Amazon to place their on-line orders. Most probably already know about this, but if you go to AmazonSmile.com to order instead of Amazon.com and choose a non-profit charity (like New Kirk Presbyterian), that charity will receive a donation of 0.5% of their order. Not much but it adds up.

The site works identical to the regular Amazon site with no additional fees and you have the benefit of giving to a charity of your choice - hopefully New Kirk!

Remember our "Angels"

Once again, the New Kirk Angel Tree will help make Christmas special for local elementary school children.

Please take an angel (or several) from the tree, purchase the items listed, and bring back the wrapped gifts with the angel attached by December 9.

Bible Reading - A Disciplined Approach

Most of us, at one time or another, have probably thought about the value of reading the Bible daily - or at least more often. But, like most disciplines - exercise, dieting, etc. - it’s hard to get started and even harder to stay on track, especially when going it alone, even though we know how beneficial it would be.

Would you like some help?

Well, good news! Click here to check out the new “Daily Devotional.” There you can join Pastor Mike by reading the daily scripture passage taken from the Daily Lectionary, read his comments and those of other followers, and, if you desire, post your own thoughts. The new church year begins December 2. How about making a pledge to yourself to join the Daily Devotional Club?

Elder Training

Ever wondered what sort of secret training officers undergo to be on session or what sort of strange, cryptic hazing we administer to initiate one to take on such an elite role?

Well, the truth is that none of this is true. Nothing is secret. Nothing is cryptic or strange. Hazing is ridiculous. And officers, of all people, know that they serve best when they take the lowest place of stature in Christ's body.

This year, we would like to open officer training to anyone who is just curious, wanting to learn more, or may feel led to one day serve as an ordained elder. Meet Neva Diggs (new elder) and Mike Sears (pastor) in the sitting area (Yes! near the coffee pot) each Sunday, 9:00-10:00, 11 Nov-2 Dec.
