Sunday Worship

September 26, 2021

We gather for worship in the Kennicott Park facility (4434 S. Lake Park Ave.) each Sunday at 10:00 am. We practice social distancing and masks are required. At this point we are not offering Sunday ministries for children but we welcome them to join us in worship. We also live stream our service below and on our Facebook page.

In order to maintain social distancing and leave space for our guests, we are limiting our capacity on Sunday mornings. Watch this short video for more about how we are doing this. During the month of September, regular attenders and members whose last names begin with the letters A-K are invited to in-person worship at Kennicott on the 1st and 3rd Sundays; those whose last name begins with L-Z on 2nd and 4th Sundays. Families with more than one last name can choose one and stick with that name for the month. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Amy.
