“Therefore comfort each and edify one another, just as you also are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
As part of the master plan for Columbia, in each of the village centers space was set aside for a multi-denominational worship facility. In most village centers a single building serves a number of worship groups. However, at Kings Contrivance, the Orthodox Church of St. Matthew and Cornerstone Church each hold the deed to their individual buildings and the land immediately under them. The Kings Contrivance Interfaith Campus, KCIC, owns the common parking and green space areas that surround the two buildings.
KCIC is responsible for managing and maintaining the jointly held property and coordinating its use. This includes overseeing lawn care and snow removal by ensuring a contract is in place, the work is properly performed and payments are made. It also responds to correspondence and requirements issued from various levels of government.
Fr. Constantine and the pastor of Cornerstone Community Church alternate as President and Vice-President of KCIC. Three lay representatives from each church serve on the council. The council usually meets quarterly and conducts most of its business by email.
