In these days full of anticipation for the start of school, we invite you to join us for a Back to School Blessing for teachers, staff, parents, and students during 8:30 and 10 a.m. worship on Sunday, August 28. With thanks and praise to God we will enter the familiar unknown of the new school year. After worship there will be instruments to play at the Music Ministry Open House, popsicles to eat, and blessing stickers to take home. It is a wonderful day to invite friends and neighbors to Kenilworth Union.

Also on August 28, Children and Family Ministry will host the yearly Sunday School Teacher Training beginning in the Schmidt Chapel. We are grateful for the forty adults committed to helping children grow in their faith. If you would like to join the team, please email

Please register your child(ren) age(s) birth through 6th grade for Children and Family Ministry Sunday School and Mid-Week Youth Groups. This yearly registration ensures we’ll have up-to-date contact and allergy information. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Sunday School on September 18 followed by Family Festival on the front lawn.
