Vacation Bible School This Summer
This summer will be spending three days with the knights of North Castle.  Together we will 'Armor Up' as we learn about strength in God.  Our theme for the week is based off of Ephesians 6:10 "Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power."  We are looking for Knights ages 4-11.  We also are asking for volunteers.  Any questions or if you are able to help contact Jessica at Kenmoreumcvbs@gmail.com

Horizon Class Flower Sale
The Horizon Class will be selling $10 vouchers to Lavocats Family Greenhouse. as they are no longer delivering plants.  These vouchers can be taken to their greenhouse in East Amherst, and you can choose your own plants, colors, and varieties. Or you may want to give the vouchers as gifts. 

To order vouchers, mail a check (in increments of $10) payable to "KUMC" to Cindy Turner at 2531 Nicole Drive, Niagara Falls, NY 14304. If you’d like vouchers in time for Mother’s Day, please postmark them by 04/24. The Postal Service has been very unpredictable. All orders must be postmarked by 05/22. Vouchers will be mailed to you within 2 days of receipt. Assuming that we will continue to have in person services, I will also have vouchers available on Sundays, after the service.

All proceeds from this sale will be donated to KUMC’s Boiler Fund.

KENMORE UMC & COVID-19

Beloved Friends in Christ,
Beginning April 4, EASTER Sunday, we will hold in-person worship at 10:00 a.m.  In keeping with our desire to keep everyone as safe as possible, we have set a maximum capacity of 100 persons in attendance at any worship service.  These persons must complete the contact tracing log upon entry, and be willing to mask, and remain physically distanced from anyone who does not reside in their household.  And on cool Sundays, you will want to dress in layers, as we will need to open some windows for proper ventilation.  We will continue to live stream our worship services, which may be accessed through the church website, or the church You Tube channel.

Blessings!
Beckie

Kenmore UMC Trustees Notes

Memorial Garden Paver
The trustees of KUMC would like to tell you about an opportunity to have a brick in the new Memorial Garden inscribed with a loved one’s name and personalized message. Your engraved paver will be a lasting memorial as it becomes a permanent piece of the garden. It could be in memory of or in honor of someone special. It could also be an up-lifting message. Please click the link below for more information and the order form.

Response To the Events of January 6
Early Wednesday afternoon, January 6th, we completed the recording of today’s worship service.  A very short time later, an angry mob stormed the nation’s Capitol in Washington, D.C.  This statement is offered in response to that event.
