Our office staff is the backbone of KBC and touches nearly every aspect and every ministry of our church. They maintain calendars and databases. They track worship attendance, record contributions, and write checks. They help manage money, answer telephones, and greet visitors. They order supplies, coordinate mailings, and print our bulletins and newsletter – the Kindler. They support committees and organizations and, in many ways, provide front line ministry as they respond and distribute requests for information, prayer, and care. Along with the rest of KBC, they help us strive together to faithfully be the presence of Christ in our community and around the world.
