Kenmore UMC Trustees Notes

Clean Up, Take Out Day

When:  Saturday June 19th between  9:00 AM and 3:00 PM
Where:  Kenmore UMC Family Life Center

The Trustees have been going through all areas of the church cleaning out items that are usable, but no longer needed by the church.  They will all be collected together so that on Saturday June 19th you can come and help us find good homes for these things by taking whatever you can use.  Donations to the church would be appreciated for the items you take, but they are not required.  There is furniture,glassware, household items, Christmas items and more!
Volunteers are needed to help with this event.  You can let us know you can help by contacting Holly Kemp, Dawn Newton or Tasia Fitzpatrick; or by calling the church office; or by putting your name on the sign up sheet at the back of the sanctuary.  Please let us know what times you are available that day so we can schedule people for shifts of about 2 hours.

Food Donations:
The Good news! We were able to send a lot of food from our own little food pantry down to Texas.

The Bad News:  We sent all the food from our own pantry down to Texas and we have depleted our supplies!  We are in need of all types of non -perishables!  Please bring any food donations to the church - Monday - Thursday - 9 - 12.

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.
Statement of Care

Thank you for your support of the ministries of Kenmore UMC.

 Our building will continue to be closed to all community groups that typically meet here. Please pray for the leadership of our faith family as decisions are made regarding the best possible procedures for opening our building safely at the appropriate time.
