Sister Act

One of the things I appreciate most about Kingsland is how we embrace and support other churches and ministries that serve the people of our community. We understand that in order to bring glory to God in our own community we must work shoulder to shoulder with our sister churches. Over the past few weeks, our missions ministry has worked on a prayer path and gazebo for our friends at Iglesia Sobre La Roca (Church on the Rock). Pastor Jorge Cardenas is a friend to our staff and a man deeply committed to reaching the growing Hispanic population in our area. It has long been a dream of his to have a prayer path and garden at the back of their property — a peaceful place that church members and the people of the surrounding neighborhood can enjoy.

Pastor Jorge’s dream is a lot closer to reality because our ministerial and support staff worked together today to continue work on the prayer path and to complete other landscaping work. We closed our offices and enjoyed a fun time of fellowship as we shoveled and spread a whole lot of crushed granite, top soil, and mulch. We all enjoyed good conversations and hearty laughter as we worked alongside one another. More than once today I thought about one of my favorite verses of Scripture — “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!” (Psalm 133:1). I am grateful to be a part of a team of friends that are committed to advancing the kingdom by serving the people and the churches of our community in a selfless and compassionate way. Thank you Kingsland staff for your willingness to go beyond by serving a sister church and, by so doing, to make our community a better place.

  1. Wow! It looks wonderful!
    What a transformation of the property and what a blessing the new path will be for the church. I loved all of the pictures of our wonderful KBC staff and pastors too!

    • Please give our thanks to Tex for the good work he and his Scout troop did on this project as part of his work toward his Eagle Scout badge. Very nicely done!

  2. Wow, what a great day! It was so much fun to serve with an amazing Kingsland Staff Team. Our team works so hard every day serving the Kingsland family. It was so rewarding getting outside of our ‘normal’ day to day duties to serve a sister church.
