Families – of all sizes, configurations and hues – are cherished at KCC. We offer a meaning- and joy-filled faith formation program for children, from infancy through high school. In addition to our weekly Sunday School, KCC provides a host of learning, service, and friendship-building opportunities for our youngest members.
Children and youth have so much to teach us about our faith. They lead worship, music and special events throughout the year including Youth Sunday, Rally Day, Palm Sunday, the Children’s Christmas pageant, and the Family Christmas Eve service. In turn, KCC plays host to children and families at treasured annual community events – the Halloween Carnival, Las Posadas, Easter Egg Hunt, and the Memorial Day Pancake Breakfast.
Visiting for the first time? Ask an usher to be introduced to Barbara Runco, our Faith Programs Director
The KCC Youth Group Live Nativity Play is right around the corner! Gather at the Kensington Library Park to see if we can find room for the Holy Family this season. Enjoy carols, candlelight, a petting zoo, piñatas, and pozole, as our youth recreate the Inn right here at KCC! If you’d like to help sponsor the event via a financial gift to help offset costs, or if you’d like to volunteer to help that evening, please contact Barbara or Enrique. firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
This year, the children and youth will explore how Christmas traditions around the globe show love to our neighbors. A brief version of the program will be presented at the 8:30 AM service. Practice for the Christmas Program occurs in Sunday School throughout November & December.
Starting September 8th, join us at 10 AM Sundays in the sanctuary for Traditional Worship. Children and youth spend the first 10 minutes in worship and depart for Sunday School after the children’s message. Infants and toddlers can be dropped off upstairs in the nursery up to 30 minutes before worship.
It is with great joy that we offer the sacrament of Christian baptism. To discuss baptism with the minister, please call the church at 619.284.1129.
Confirmation is taught by our minister Rev. Darryl Kistler and our Faith Programs Director. The classes are offered for 6th grade and older students who are preparing to assume responsibility for their own faith journeys. At the end of Confirmation, the young people who elect to join, are welcomed into the church’s membership.
The award-winning Faith and Sexuality course, Our Whole Lives, is offered to 7th through 9th grade students, and older ones by request. As sexuality is a gift from God, we encourage young adults to articulate their values, consider consequences, and approach decisions with their faith in mind. It is a life saving program — that can prevent disease, and help young people talk in depth, honestly and without judgment, about their sexual health, relationships, gender identity, and their changing bodies.
