His-Story of Kost
God's long and faithful history here in North Branch, Minnesota
Kost Free Church? KFC?
Kost Evangelical Free Church.
The name of a business or a church is very important and usually tells you a lot about it. So does Evangelical Free mean that the church is free of evangelicals or maybe it doesn’t give you the opportunity to give tithes and offerings? What does “Kost” mean? Is it cost free? Did you mean to spell it that way? Yep!
Kost Evangelical Free Church or Kost Church is the 2nd oldest church in it’s denomination in the United States. If you lived in our area way back when, then you would drive through the community of Kost. And Evangelical Free is a denomination of Bible believing, Jesus following churches with a long history of loving God and serving others. This is why the church was called what it is. We’ve abbreviated it so it’s not such a mouthful. :)
We have recently had a new pastor and his family come to serve here. He is a wonderful shepherd who loves us well and a gifted, engaging preacher that helps us understand the Bible and know what to do with it in our lives. We hope you join us for a church service or event sometime to check out the beautiful old building and how it’s been and is being maintained. Maybe you’ll want to take a walk through the cemetery next store and see the amazing names and dates of faithful people that have attended and served Jesus at Kost Church.
We meet for church at 9:30 am and then have a time of coffee and treats following the service before Sunday school at about 11 am. Sunday school is provided for all ages, little ones to adults! We can’t wait to meet you! Remember, you are loved!
