Third Thursday Table Talk


Want to be informed about what is happening at General Conference and the different resolutions being presented? This group, named “Third Thursday Table Talk” will meet every 3rd Thursday of the month, beginning March 19th and continue into June. We will begin with a light meal at 6:30 pm in the fellowship hall and transition to conversation about who we are and where we see ourselves in the midst of the struggle. We will discuss the various submitted resolutions and the impact they may have for you and Kenwood. Together, I hope we can find a healthy, Christian path forward. This will be a safe space, in which we use active listening skills, and where compassion and love are present. The Table Talk group will close at 8:30 p.m. with Communion. – In Christ’s Love, Pastor Lisa

Measuring Mission & Ministry


Have you been working for the Lord this week? If so, please put a stone in the jar so we can track our progress in furthering God’s kingdom. Examples: food ministries, mission teams, habitat for humanity, disaster response, tutoring, meals on wheels, crocheting prayer shawls, shelter volunteer, helping to feed the homeless, etc. When you complete your task(s) that week, please be sure to place your stone in the jar on Sunday (located in Narthex). This is an allowed trackable item within the UMC statistical tracking program. Find a way to make a difference! One stone per person per week please. Thank you!– Pastor Lisa
