This is a special time in the life of the Church. Here are some upcoming events that help us receive Jesus’ grace for our life in new ways.
Palm and Passion Sunday: March 29, 10:00 a.m.
This special and unique worship experience begins with the children waving palms, as we remember how Jesus was welcomed into Jerusalem. Scripture scenes leading to Jesus’ arrest will lead us into Holy Week.
Maundy Thursday Service: April 2, 7:00 p.m.
This evening service invites us to remember when Jesus gave a new commandment (“Maundy” means new commandment) to love others as he loved us. We will share in communion.
Easter Sunrise Service in Cemetery: April 5, 6:30 a.m.
Up from the grave he arose! Come worship in a place he offers comfort as we watch light break through the clouds. In case of rain, we will meet in the sanctuary

While basketball fans prepare for March Madness, you are invited to participate in Mark Madness! This season of Lent, Kenwood UMC will be reading through the book of Mark, a book of the Bible that tells us about Jesus’ life of love for us and the world. A special daily, reading guide will be provided to journey with Jesus from the cross and empty grave.

Souper Bowl of Caring is a National Youth Event in which hunger awareness is at the center. Each year the event occurs on Super Bowl Sunday, a day in which, a lot of food is made, eaten and often thrown out. The goal of Souper Bowl of Caring is to raise money to support local community programs that fight hunger every day. As in the past, Kenwood will be supporting ACES. During worship see this year’s Souper Bowl Commercial, then on Souper Bowl Sunday, February 1st place your donations for ACES in soup pots. The Higher Ground Youth are hoping to raise enough money to buy much need supplies for our ACES partners. We hope that you will join in and donate on February 1st and help us stop hunger, one Souper Bowl at a time!

Come, be a part of a Sunday morning small group with discussion centered around the book and DVD titled “Love Does” by Bob Goff. This will be a video-based study where we read a chapter, watch a video, and have a discussion. This is not a long-term commitment; but is advertised as a 5-session format, and is a chance to get together on Sunday mornings after worship for fellowship and growth. The small group hopes to begin the discussion before the end of January. All are welcome.

Beginning January 18, we will begin a new worship series that explores the stories or parables Jesus told. He told some whoppers! Some we wish to ignore, others we have heard so much, we may yawn and tune out. Hear some of Jesus’ stories for our story worthy life!
