Hurricane Relief Collection


In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian, the Nurture Committee is sponsoring a collection to be sent to UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief. 100% of your donation to UMCOR goes directly to help victims.  We welcome either cash or checks made out to Kenwood with UMCOR in the memo line.  A collection jar is in the narthex.

“Grow In Grace” Lunch Bunch


Save The Date! Sept 26th 11 a.m. – 12 Noon

Thursday, Sept. 26, 11.a.m.-12 p.m.

Led by our own Judy Lanzillotti and Pastor Lisa Nordan! Mark your calendars and join us for a “Growing in Grace Lunch”. This will be a lunch and study group with the first book being Ragamuffin Gospel. Further details to be offered soon. Tentatively, the group will meet in the Fellowship Hall. Bring a friend & join us!



In John 10:3, Jesus tells us that his followers hear his voice and he calls them by name. Kenwood name tags will be available for the congregation in the foyer of the church.
Research has shown that wearing name tags for worship creates a more friendly atmosphere and invites conversation. It makes visitors feel more welcome and helps us learn the names of those who are new to the church. When you arrive, you will find your name tag in a tray as you enter the foyer. Names are in alphabetical order by your last name. If you do not see your name and would like a tag, please print your name on the sheet provided.
Before you leave, please BE SURE to REMOVE your name tag and place it back in the tray. We pray that you will wear your Kenwood name tag proudly and that it will bring blessings to our congregation and guests.
(For more information, please see Josie Nicholls, Nurture Committee)

What is the Instant Church Directory App?


This is a free app that allows Kenwood members to sync our on-line directory to your iPhone, iPad Mini, iPod Touch, Android device or Kindle Fire.  Members will be able to view the church and staff information, as well as search and view family members.  You will also be able to call, email or text if a phone number or email address is available in the directory.  Any changes that are made to the Instant Church Directory On-line, will automatically download to your devices, ensuring you always have the most recent updated version of the directory.

Who can Access the app?

Anyone who has an email address listed in the directory (under their family details) will be able to request access to download and sync the directory on their device.  Each member will receive a password per device, which cannot be shared with other members.  Furthermore, all of the data is protected by SSL, so only members and staff will have access to your church data.  Some members have requested that their picture and/or address not be included in the on-line directory.  Consequently, they will not be able to access the church app.

How can I access the app?

Call or email the secretary at the church office (798-7444 or during normal business hours (Tuesday Thursday or Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.) to send you the document with the app hyperlinks to whatever the address is where you want to download the app.  If you have a problem downloading or using this app, please contact Dwight Huster (804-308-2248).
