Eden Hunsader, Youth Sunday Project Manager

I am officially inviting you all to come celebrate the youth of graduating class of 2021 and their accomplishments at Kenilworth Union Church. Youth Sunday will take place on Sunday, May 16 this year so please come wish our seniors farewell by showing up for worship.

On Youth Sunday there will be three worship services: Livestream Worship at 9:30 a.m., Worship in the Sanctuary at 10:30 a.m. (for families of high school seniors and Junior Bell Choir only please), and Outdoor Worship in the Memorial Garden at 1 p.m.

A bit about me, my name is Eden Hunsader and I will be planning this year’s Youth Sunday as a part of my senior project. I am a graduating high school senior at New Trier High School and I decided to do my senior project here at Kenilworth Union.

The Senior Project is a program at New Trier that allows for off campus learning opportunities. High school seniors have the option to organize a project to complete instead of attending their regular classes.

Having grown up at Kenilworth Union Church, I decided it was only fitting that I use my senior project as a way to say goodbye to a place that has been my home for the past 18 years. I have put a lot of hard work into this project and I hope to see you all there for its culmination.

Lastly, a huge thank you to our Youth Minister, Silvi Pirn and her amazing support throughout the whole planning process.

In gratitude, Eden Hunsader
