Honor Loved Ones with Poinsettias



Christmas season is almost here, and you can help adorn Kenwood’s sanctuary by purchasing a poinsettia in honor of or in memory of loved ones. Cost is $11 each. Order forms are on the table located in the entrance foyer. Fill out the green form (with the name of your loved one, and your name) and place it, along with your check (payable to “Kenwood UMC”; memo it “Poinsettia”), in the offering plate. DEADLINE TO ORDER IS DEC. 1. The plants will be on display beginning Sunday morning, Dec. 15. Thank you. — Debbie Duty, Worship Team Chair

Kenwood Cares Ministry


Kenwood Cares is a group of caring folks who are willing to offer their skills and time to help others in the church.  Some of our Kenwood Cares members give rides, fix a meal, do light sewing or yard work, pick up groceries and so on.  If you enjoy helping others and would like to serve,  please email Josie Nicholls at or call Gale Payne at (804) 740-3903.  This ministry is led by Kenwood’s Nurture Committee.  Thank you.

Can You Hear Me Now?


In an effort to help people hear the worship service better, the finance team has looked into purchasing an assisted listening system.  This system includes ten individual hearing devices and comes with a charging system.   The cost is: $2, 460.00.   We are seeking donations to offset the cost from the budget.  If you would like to donate, please submit a check indicating “hearing fundraiser” on the memo line.  If you have any questions, please see Ronnie Bolton.
