“WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS MY NAME”

08/30/2019

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)
