A Thank You Letter from Jummy and Tolu

KCC has recently been offering support to an African asylum seeker/torture victim and her son, Jummy and Tolu Onimole. The outpouring of generosity from KCC members and our community friends has been wonderful and we are looking to expand the circle of support. If you are able to help, contact Pastor Darryl or Marg. Donations can be monetary, gift cards for Target/groceries; family movies. Mom could use job leads, as she is certified in caregiving and now has her permit to work in the U.S. Please take a moment to read the letter from Jummy and Tolu.


Save the Date for Our Church Retreat This Year in the Fall!

We will again gather at Camp Stevens in Julian for an all ages church retreat at Camp Stevens, this year to be held Nov. 3 – 5. The fall is a great time to be at camp, enjoying the harvest from the summer and hiking in the cooler temperatures. Join us for a weekend worshipping God amid wide open spaces!

Circle Coffee Mornings, 2nd Tuesday of Each Month at 10 AM

This program is brought to you by K8’s5 Women’s Circle and Kensington Community Church. Meet in Lander Hall for coffee, tea, pastries, fruit, good company, and a different program every month. We’re casual and you already know most of us. Open to all (that means the men folk, too!)

Our next Circle meeting is May 9, at 10 AM.  It’s summertime and the living is easy, so join us on a Picnic at Lake Murray. We gather at the church at 10 am; carpool leaves at 10:15.  Food will be in abundance as all signed up for the Potluck with all major food groups covered. Beverages will be provided. Everyone is welcome, no reservations required, so come even if decision is last minute. Call Joan Wayman at 619-756-7733 if questions.


Women’s Spirituality Discusses Latest Book Selection in June

The next meeting is Tuesday, June 13, at 10 AM, upstairs in the Zen Room. The ladies will discuss Lecture 8 of their latest book, “The Varieties of Religious Experience” by William James.  Book can be purchased on Amazon if you’d like to join the group.


“Well” Visits Are Underway!

Interested in a “Well” Visit? Our former Associate Minister, Sheila Naismith, is currently employed as a hospice chaplain and is giving back to our church by offering get-to-know-you visits with folks in our congregation. Learn more by letting Sheila or Pastor Darryl know you’re interested – click to email:


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


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
