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!

Mission & Service Opportunities!

The Ministry of Mission & Outreach would like to thank everyone for their kind donations during our September Collection for the San Diego Youth Services!

 

Your contributions go a long way to showing the youth of our community how loved they are and that they are not alone in their struggles. Thank you.  If you were not able to before, and would still like to make a financial donation to SDYS, please visit their give page (https://sdyouthservices.org/donate/).  You can help save a young person’s life.

 

Help Ponce’s Feed Our Neighborhood!

KCC’s Ministry of Mission and Outreach (MMO) would like to encourage you to help our neighbor, Ponce’s Restaurant, to help feed our neighborhood! Ponce’s has set up a way for us to pay for meals for folks who are struggling economically, due to the effects of COVID-19. Pastor Darryl bought $100 worth of meals through his Pastor’s Discretionary Fund.  If you’d like to help cover the meal of a “neighbor”, visit Ponce’s E-Tock page and donate.

 

Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service

On the first Sunday evening of each month at 7 PM over Zoom, you are invited to a time of tranquility, a time of listening to the still small Voice, a time of growing closer in relationship to the Holy, a time of being still. Each evening will include a spiritual reading or two followed by a time of silence for contemplation.

  • Find a quiet place in your home where you can be restful for an hour: a quiet corner, a comfy recliner. Light a candle. Dim the lights. Play some soft music.
  • Let your spirit find calm and a haven for an hour of renewal. Allow this time to refresh you, renew you, reinvigorate your very being. May you draw closer to a knowing of Spirit within you and guiding you.

The next Spirit’s Haven Contemplation will be on October 4th at 7:00 PM. Led by Paula Elizabeth, KCC’s former interim pastor; we are excited that she and her husband Rev. Ross Putnam recently became members of KCC! Paula is an ordained minister, a spiritual director, a coach for clergy, congregations and leaders, and a counselor. She has been leading contemplative services for many years as well as offering other contemplative practices.

The Zoom links to join Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service will be published in the Weekly Prayers and Announcements the Friday before Spirit’s Haven Contemplative Service meets.

 

New Grief Support Group is forming at KCC

In these tough times, a safe space among friends to grieve and mourn our losses are even more vital than usual. KCC is offering such a place for our members and friends to gather virtually to name our loss and be supported on our journey. Loss comes in varied ways and this group is open to all who have experienced loss and desire to be in a supportive loving community.

The first meeting of our Grief Support Group will be on Thursday evening, October 15, from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM over Zoom. The Grief Support Group will meet for Six (6) Weeks, and we ask that folks make a commitment to attend all six sessions.
For more information, please contact Bill Ehlers (bnsehlers@cox.net or 619-466-2637).

Come Join the Choir! No Prerequisites Required!

Let Us Know:

Are we performing music you want to hear? Do you miss hearing or singing a particular hymn or song? Let us know and send in your requests to Kay-Marie Moreno (kmoreno03@yahoo.com) and we’ll see where we can plug them into the services. We are always looking for ideas and welcome yours.

 

 

Women’s Spirituality Group Meets Via Zoom on Tuesday, October 6, at 10 AM

 

We’ll continue reading Howard Thurman’s Jesus and the Disinherited. This month we’ll read the chapter entitled, Hate.

For Zoom Link and any questions, call Sharon Young 619-675-9592.


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.
