Our congregation is also diverse in age and stage of life,including senior citizens, families with children, singles, young adults,and university students.

The Lippo Karawaci community is somewhat transient, as mission andwork assignments change; but we have experienced healthy continuity in ourfirst two years as a church which began in the late fall of 2014. Faithfulbiblical exposition and a joyful community draw many to join us for as long asGod calls them to this area.

Each Sunday morning, we oversee two university student chapel worshipservices attended by almost 4,000 students; and we are blessed with theprivilege of worshiping with them through music and the preaching of God'sWord. In our later morning KPC service, which is more oriented tocommunity people, our attendance has grown to over 200. At least 100 community people attend the early services, so that ourcombined KPC attendance from the community is over 300. We have @ 85 actual members of the church in 2017.

On Sundays, we utilize facilities on the university campus forworship services and Bible classes. We also offer Bible classes and smallgroups during the week for fellowship, discipleship, and prayer.
