Children and Youth Ministry
Kenilworth Union Church strives to create a community where children and youth can come to know that they are loved unconditionally by God and can learn to bring that knowledge into their lives by loving themselves and others. Through fun, fellowship and service, we inspire youth to explore and grow in their Christian faith.
Children from 3-years-old through 8th grade are invited to participate in Sunday School at Kenilworth Union from September to May. Sunday School offers a nurturing place of spiritual growth, education and fellowship where children can experience God’s word through personal and social development.
There are two options for children through 6th grade to worship and take part in our Christian Education programming on Sundays during this time of year.
- 9 a.m., children worship with parents in the main Sanctuary through a “word for all ages,” after which the children are invited to age-appropriate group chapels.
- 10:30 a.m., during traditional Sunday School children spend 30 minutes in age-specific chapels and 30 minutes in a classroom.
Our 7th and 8th graders gather for Youth Breakfast in the Manse, which runs from 10:15 to 11:30 a.m. with discussions at 10:30 a.m. They enjoy fellowship and food while engaging in faith exploration and discussion with youth ministry leaders.
Infants and toddlers are welcome during any worship service in the nursery, which is professionally staffed.
Kenilworth Union Church welcomes youth in 9th through 12th grade to a suite of programs where they can be loved for who they are—no matter where they are or where they have been. We are a faith family that seeks to love God, to love others as ourselves, to make a difference in this world, and to live life abundantly.
All youth are welcome, regardless of church affiliation or attendance. Programs include youth groups, classes, discussions, and special events designed to help participants discover and deepen their Christian faith. Support is offered to help youth see God’s light in the darkness and disappointments of life.
Service opportunities and a high school mission trip invite youth to give of themselves to make life better for others.
