Serve & Connect with Our Church

Be With Us

We are an active church. Here’s how you can get involved this month and in upcoming months

Share Your Joy About KCC’s Community on Facebook

KCC’s Media Team explains how!

November 17 is Stewardship Sunday & Spud Bowl!  Pledge Drive Now Underway

 

This year’s Stewardship theme is, “The Way”.  We will reflect on the way we embrace and reflect our faith as well as the way that the reign of God becomes real to each of us.  Our stewardship pledge drive will soon be underway. You should look for your materials in the mail at the beginning of November. Your faithful stewardship allows us to plan the way forward for KCC.  God has done, and continues to do, remarkable things through and with us.  We trust in your continuing financial support for the mission and ministry of our church.

Enjoy! On Stewardship Sunday, we will celebrate with our famous (and delish!)  SPUD BOWL luncheon.   This is a free potato bar-themed lunch following the 10 AM service.

The Great Loves of Advent & Christmas!

  • Prepare for Advent
    Sunday, November 24, Hanging of the Greens after 10 AM Service in the Sanctuary
  • Help decorate the Christmas Tree in Lander Hall

Advent Begins Sunday, December 1. This year, we are using the UCC’s National Campaign of “THREE GREAT LOVES” and then added one VERY important fourth Love.  Each Sunday has a special theme to it, and all Sundays of Advent will have candles to be lit, carols to be sung, and an inspiring message of how we can live into and live out our Great Love of Children, Creation, Neighbor and God.  Make plans to join us in worship or in any one of the many activities this season has to offer.

Serve as a Sunday Greeter

If you are able to smile, shake hands and say hello, you are the perfect candidate to be a Sunday morning greeter for the 10:00 service. Duties include coming about 20 minutes early, greeting everyone, and telling visitors that there are Visitor Information Cards in the pews. If someone needs other information, such as where child care is, the greeter can tell them, or ask an usher to help them. That’s all there is to it. So if you would like to do this, please sign up on the sheet in Lander Hall.

 

Serve in Other Ways

Serve as a liturgist. Bring refreshments or prepare communion. Wash linens or press play to launch multimedia. Want to sing or play an instrument in worship, even if you can’t commit to the Chancel Choir?

Deepen your connection to our church family, serving on one of our ministry committees. Chat with us about getting involved at info@kensingtonucc.com.

 

Be Family to Each Other

The family we create among our church friends is precious. Foster it in smaller and interest based groups: Secret Sisters, Women’s Spirituality, Circle Group, Prayer Shawl Ministry, Chancel Choir, Youth Group, Camp Stevens Retreats, and more. Contact us to learn more these groups. Or suggest a new idea for a small group! We are at info@kensingtonucc.com.
