In Christian life, knowledge, experiences, and behaviors are all part of a lifelong dynamic interaction that transforms the way we live.
Based upon research and best practices about how faith is formed, Children and Family Ministry at Kenilworth Union Church has adopted the following statement of purpose which forms the framework of our teaching and learning across all ages:
Grounded in the congregation’s baptismal promises, we nurture and guide faithful Christians who know, love, and serve God and neighbor. Faithful Christians:
God who is active in the world and in each of our lives whose power and love creates, and sustains us and all life.
God with our whole heart, mind, and soul, and our neighbors as ourselves in response to God’s call on our life to live by the great commandment.
In response to the gift of God’s loving kindness, we have a responsibility to live out what we say we believe…in our homes, in our workplaces, in how we treat others, in sharing what we have, in the ethics we practice, and in the priorities we hold and live by. The same Holy Spirit that empowered and guided Jesus in his ministry and teaching, continues to be present among us, encouraging us to work for peace, justice and reconciliation in our broken world.
The statements above derive from Kenilworth Union Church “What We Believe” statement.
