THE MAIN THING

Jenna Luoto, Spiritual Formation Pastor

God instructs us all through out His word that we have to live with a single-minded devotion. Allowing distractions into our life will pull our devotion away from what is most important and become divided. Christmas is a season where we can easily allow that to happen. This Sunday, we will define what the main thing of Christmas really is, and what we may need to do to make sure that Jesus and his mission are truly the main thing.

NO LIFETRACK IN DECEMBER

JOIN US IN JANUARY.

No matter where you are at on your journey, Lifetrack is the FIRST step that we encourage you to participate in here at Kankakee First Church. This is where you will learn about WHO we are as a church, WHAT we believe, and HOW we are structured to help you along your spiritual journey.  Lifetrack is a four-step process that helps you discover your redemptive purpose and live the life God created for you. You will learn more about who we are as a church and who God has created you to be.

Lunch and activites for kids provided.
