What's New?

Roll Up Your Sleeves!

The local American Red Cross will be holding a blood drive at New Kirk on Sunday, September 22, from 1:00 - 6:00 p.m.

This is a great opportunity for all of us to support this important work of the Red Cross. There will be a signup sheet for times in the church lobby, and please help spread the word as this is open to the entire Blythewood community and its outlying neighborhoods. We need at least 25 donors to justify the ARC effort. If successful, we hope to make this a regular outreach for our church.

If you are willing to volunteer to help, please contact Christy Rew: (803) 772-9201 or email: missions@newkirkpres.com.


Our Wednesdays of Worship (WOW) series began Wednesday, September 11, and continues trough October 9.

These sessions compliment our focus for Stewardship 2019, which is "Stewardship of the Soul." a journey that explores our inner depths through the wisdom of the Enneagram, an ancient tool used by Christian spiritual directors for centuries.

Light meals will be provided each session. Meals start at 5:30 p.m. Study starts at 6:30 p.m.

We'll try to finish the lesson by 7:15ish - but you know Mike!

Holy Smokes...the Fall Family Festival

Be here October 26 for the Fall Family Festival, and enjoy the food, fellowship, and fun, including pumpkin carving for the kids, and the 'spicy' competition for the Annual Chili Cook-Off. The festival runs from 4-7 pm.

Click below to fill out an entry form. Plan to bring your favorite secret family recipe - or just a spoon for the tasting! (Actually spoons and bowls will be provided.)

Christmas Bazaar Is Coming Soon!

This year the Christmas Bazaar will be Saturday, November 16 (We've moved the date up to avoid some of the seasonal crush of events. )

Let your neighbors know! We expect a good crowd of vendors.

If you are interested in helping with this great event, there will be an initial planning meeting directly following church on Sunday, September 29th.

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 the photo => 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?

Amazon Smile

Throughout the year, many people use Amazon for online shopping. However, 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!
