Welcome HOME

Welcome Home!
Our Fall kick-off this year is set for September 11. It will be reminiscent of a “Rally Day”, if you have experienced this before. The old United Methodist Church that I grew up in had wonderful Rally Days. The attendance was typically small, but when the school year started and folks were settled into a new autumn routine, folks would come to church to kick-off new Sunday school classes, we would play games in the front lawn and have an old-fashioned potluck in the Fellowship Hall. Those Rally Days gave all of us a fresh start. If life had gotten a bit too busy during the summer months and we hadn’t made church a priority, we had an opportunity to realign our schedules and reconnect with one another. What a great idea for back then and for us today!
Your church staff has chosen a theme for this 2022/23 year, and it is “Home." King Avenue is that for so many, a home that is accepting, loving and empowering. Our desire it to share that sense of home with all whom we encounter, whether they are currently part of congregation or not. You will hear us refer to home in a variety of ways this year…as we kick off our fall events, both for our adults and our children and youth, we welcome all of you home!
We are looking forward to seeing you come back to King Avenue this fall, especially on September 11th for worship, pizza after church, games and even some inflatables! 
Welcome Home, dear friends.
