Our church believes in caring for (and sharing with) one another, our community, and our world. This belief is manifested in the ministries we pursue and in the fellowships we share.
Ministries are the works we do in love for those in our community and the world. Ministries connect our church, in the spirit of service, with the needs of people both near and far. God has blessed Kiowa Creek Community Church to be able to offer several ministries vital to our community (described below).
Fellowship is the bond between believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. As Pastor Jim has said, fellowship is an indispensable part of the intricate weave (along with faith) that makes us strong as believers in Christ. Our church encourages fellowship in its many forms within this body of Christ.
Originally begun as a church ministry to the indigent of Elbert County, the KCCC Food Pantry now participates in the state’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), which works to improve the health of people at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA commodity foods. The KCCC Food Pantry also participates in The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). This is a USDA program to help supplement the diets of low-income individuals, by providing them with emergency food at no cost. Please contact the food pantry to see if you are eligible. The Food Pantry works in partnership with other agencies in the region to provide food and necessary supplies for the needy in the Kiowa and Elbert County area. Currently, Food Pantry walk-in hours are Tuesdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Those wishing to volunteer their services at the Food Pantry or desiring to donate food are asked to call the church office at 303-621-2376. If you wish to help support the Food Pantry please mail your check to KCCC Food Pantry, P.O. Box 389, Kiowa, CO 80117. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
The Zimbabwe Mission is interested in spiritually guiding and materially assisting the needy in that part of Africa. If you are interested in helping the Renewed Hope Charitable Foundation, Inc. (founded by Ralph and Roberta Pippitt), please go to their website.
In keeping with our church vision and mission statements, we are often involved with the young people of Elbert County in providing fun and spiritually educational activities after school and during the summer.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Each June, KCCC sponsors a fun week-long gathering of youngsters. Kids get the chance to play, fellowship, and learn about the Bible. Those with young children are invited to contact the church office in May to arrange for their children to attend.
Kiowa Ladies Aid
The Kiowa Ladies Aid is a women’s social and benevolent society, comprising individuals from the KCCC congregation, which has been active for several years in providing for the financial and spiritual needs of the Kiowa community. Funds from their tireless efforts have been used to support many of our church’s needs. If you’re interested in learning more about the Kiowa Ladies Aid, please see Donna Reese or Linda Ehmann.
Deacon’s Sunday Brunch
The Deacon’s Sunday Brunch happens at the Fellowship Hall (directly behind the church) on the third Sunday of each month, following the Sunday worship service.

All visitors are welcomed to attend, so skip breakfast on the third Sunday of each month and join us for brunch and a great time!
