New Sermon Series – “Living”

Beginning Sunday, April 28th thru mid-June

Easter is more than just a day. It is a 50-day season that marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the ways we live into that reality, just as his disciples did. The season of Easter has long been a time when newcomers to Christianity and those already on the Christian journey revisit the foundations of the faith. In our Easter Sermon Series called “Living” we will read from the Gospel of John and consider Jesus words to “Believe in Me,” “Follow Me,” and “Listen to Me.”

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 through Thursday, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 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).
