Vacation Bible School This Summer
This summer will be spending three days with the knights of North Castle Aug 16 - 18.  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

Upgraded KUMC Food Pantry & Mission Room
As part of an Eagle Project a Boy Scout from Troop 444 and his fellow scouts have improved our Food Pantry area in the Wesley Room.  This Life Scout has worked diligently planning, fund-raising and executing his plan with his fellow scouts over the last several months. We can now help to serve many more people in need.  Also included was shelving to contain our items that make up UMCOR kits and other Missions Projects. Take a look when you get a chance.

Food Drive - August 22
On Sunday, August 22nd the Kenmore United Methodist Church Trustees with Boy Scout Troop 444 will be collecting donations before and after our weekly church service for our new food pantry.   All donations will be used to help those in our immediate community. Please bring any non-perishable food and canned goods, health care or new unused baby care items (diapers, formula, wipes etc.…)  

We appreciate the generosity of our church parishioners helping us collect food for those in need in our community. We truly appreciate your support.  

UMCOR & Missions Room
The new shelving and bins will hold the items necessary for our main UMCOR kits we make:  Hygiene kits, Cleaning Buckets and School Kits.
This will be put to use immediately as we begin collecting School Supplies for KenTon Closet and other items for our Mission Central trip this fall.
