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.

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 supplies for Hygiene kits and other items for our Mission Central trip this fall.  


Here is the latest news regarding in-person worship at Kenmore UMC.
