KINGS CHURCH IS SCENT FREE – Just a reminder to everyone to please refrain from using perfume or cologne when we gather together. For people who have scent allergies, encountering such fragrances can mean a day of illness as a result. Let’s share Christian love by not using perfume or cologne when we gather together.
PRAYER GROUP will resume meeting here at Kings Church on Wednesday, April 7 at 10 am. Prayer requests can be made via the prayer box on the Ministry Opportunities table in the Narthex or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
CELEBRATING EASTER – You are invited to consider a donation of Spring Flowers, especially potted tulips & ‘mums or daisies, for Easter Sunday. (Please no Easter lily’s due to a severe allergy in our congregation.) The flowers may be given in memory of loved ones and dropped off by Holy Saturday.

THE BENEVOLENT FUND is a means of giving assistance to families in the wider community who are having a difficult time financially and are not able to go to the Food Bank. Kentville Independent grocery store allows us to offer food vouchers to these families which is in turn paid by the benevolent fund. Support comes through PAR and on Communion Sundays, the loose offering is allocated to the fund. If you would like to donate to the benevolent fund, you may do so by indicating Ben. Fund on the “other line” of your offering envelope.
FUNDY INTERCHURCH FOOD BANK is an important outreach program in our community that helps around 250 people each week by supplying them with food and other essentials. One way we can support this program is by donating to the food bank. Suggested items include: milk-can or powder, hot chocolate mix, peanut butter, cereal, cheese whiz or slices, rice, flour, chunky soup or stew, canned meats, ketchup, pasta & sauce, honey or molasses, salad dressing/mayo, canned juice or fruit, laundry detergent, school lunch stuff, toothpaste and shampoo. Donations can be left at the church.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT KINGS CHURCH HAS A NUT FREE POLICY to accommodate those with severe nut allergies. All foods containing nuts and/or nut by-products are not to be served on the premises. Thank you for helping to make Kings a place of hospitality for all!
