We hope that you are healthy and well and enjoyed a wonderful Passover and Easter season! We have had a busy few months here as we've spent time investing in what we truly believe in: community.
The Esco Bistro youth program has been steadily growing! This past weekend, a group of 19 students and staff went camping along the Sea of Galilee. They went hiking, swimming and climbed a ropes course. When they weren't running arund, they spent time learning about Peter, no better place than the Sea of Galilee! Earlier this month Esco Bistro had a bake sale to fund the trip and raised over $700! We love having them as a part of our community and seeing then grow in their walk with the Lord.
In addition to our younger community members, our students at Kings School of Media participated in the Second, Annual KSM Mini Oscars! The students produced their own films and submitted them one week before the event for judging, then that evening winners for announced for categories from "Best Film" to "Best Cinematography" and "Best Sound Editing." The Jerusalem Post sent a reporter to attend the event and Kings School of Media had a write up in the paper the following week!
In order to further reach out beyond our community, the women on our staff organized a Women's Tea. They originally expected around 30 women, but over 80 signed up and attended! Ladies from communities all around Israel gathered in the Pavilion for tea, a light lunch and to be encouraged by different guest speakers. It was demanded that it become an annual event!
Finally, we are also thrilled to tell you that the floors on the P1 and C1 level of the Clal building have been cleaned and polished! As some of you may know, we have have been earnestly praying that the Clal building would be restored and seen as a place of beauty. Now under new management, the first order of action was to clean up the floors! It has brought new life and light to the area surrounding King of Kings, Cafe Forte and the Anchor of Hope Family Counseling Center. We are so excited and thankful for this answer to prayer!
You are a part of our community as well, so thank you for taking some time to read and learn about all the Lord is doing here at King of Kings! Don't forget to stop in and visit us at KKCJ.org or join us for service each Sunday through Live Stream, the links are below!
