Mission Trip to Thailand
October 16–30, 2022
Kenwood’s focus on discipleship for the 2022-23 year is an exciting adventure in our church community. Both structured and organic opportunities are available for the Young Adult community (ages 18+) to get to know God, peers, and others in the church better, resulting in a richer understanding of what it means to live a life when God is WITH us as we are to grow WITH each other and grow in our relationship WITH God together. A variety of discipleship possibilities are provided for both males, females, individuals, and couples at various points in the week.
We are blessed to have sound teaching on Sunday mornings and encourage each Young Adult to tap into that resource together at 9:15 AM. Young Adults are welcome to use the listening guide below to take notes and facilitate processing and reflection on the sermon for when we discuss the sermon together during the 11:00 AM hour.

The first Sunday of each month, Young Adults in Sunday School will decide where to go out for lunch together that day (individual expenses). The result will be posted to the GroupMe chat so those who missed Sunday School will still have an opportunity to come WITH the group.
The last Sunday of each month, our Young Adults Sunday School class will have a potluck lunch outdoors in the Pavilion with one of the other Sunday School classes following second service. It is a fantastic way to get to know others in the church.
During the school year, the entire church body can come together for a catered meal at 5:30 pm followed by a variety of opportunities to learn and serve in various capacities from 6:15-7:30 pm. Childcare and classes for children are available for Young Adult parents who want to participate in one of the offered options
Once a month, we will have an event where we can build relationships WITH other Young Adults while doing a fun activity together. This event is always open to friends and people interested in checking out the group.

Discipleship for engaged and newlywed couples occurs at church the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month (pizza and childcare provided) to encourage each other to grow both personally and in their marriages using Biblical principles and church community support. In addition to the Backlunds, Kyle and Catherine Reynolds can be contacted if you’d like to join or have more questions about the group @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Those who are in their 30s and even early 40s (we won’t check ID) are invited to be part of the Young-ish Adults Small Group who will be tackling the topic of spiritual disciplines this semester. This group includes both marrieds and singles and meet every other Tuesday evening at the church. They also have a social event together each month. Please contact Kurt or Londa if you are interested at email@example.com.
Individuals, couples, and small groups can request personalized discipleship opportunities that work with their schedule and even specific areas where they wish to grow. There are a number of people on the deaconate and elder board that have signed up as willing to do discipleship with anyone who is interested. If you are interested in a custom discipleship opportunity, please contact Pastor Scott @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
