Worship Themes

Here are the themes for our worship services this month at KCC!

We hope in this time of physical distancing that the Worship Services lift your hearts and spirits, and let’s you know how much God loves you and is with you in these uncertain times!

October Themes

October 3, 2021. The Blessing of the Animals. Join us for one of the most joyous services of the year: The Blessing of the Animals. We’ll worship outside on our front lawn as we hear how God’s blesses us with the animal kingdom, and how we are called to be good stewards and neighbors to our animal kindred. We’ll have a Blessing Station set up for you to have your pets individually blessed. We will host a petting zoo and offer pony rides as well.

October 10, 2021. Pastor Darryl will be looking at one of the tougher teachings of Jesus around money and wealth. Jesus was not about the prosperity gospel in any way, shape, or form, and that teaching’s corruption runs rampant through American society. What was Jesus trying to do with the teaching around wealth? And how can we have a higher morality around money?  Our KCC Chancel Choir will perform a song in honor of Indigenous People’s Day at the 10:30 AM Service. We will celebrate the Rite of Baptism of a child at the 10:30 AM Service as well.

October 17, 2021. Preschool Sunday/The Children’s Sabbath. We’ll celebrate the near 50 year relationship between KCC and Kensington Preschool. We’ll meet and hear from our new KPS Director, Adriana DiCarlo, and recommit ourselves to our sacred calling to care for and nurture the children of our community and world.

October 24, 2021. The 10th Anniversary of KCC Being an Open and Affirming Church.  Come celebrate this momentous occasion in the history of our church as we commemorate the moment we officially became an Open and Affirming Church. We will look to our past, be called into this moment, and recommit ourselves to the future that God is beckoning us into you.

October 31, 2021. Halloween & Reformation Sunday. Join us for this fun coincidence that happens every 7-years: Halloween falls on a Sunday! Wear your costume to services and stay for a COVID-safe trick r’ treat. Pastor Darryl and our worship leaders will be in costume as they lead us in our Reformation themed worship service.
