Sharing your gifts and talents…
The term stewardship is often associated with church fund-raising. But that’s only part of what it’s all about.
The gifts of your time and talent will fulfill your stewardship responsibilities, just as your annual monetary pledge does.
When you support your Kensington Congregational Church family, you will make new friendships and reap priceless, personal rewards.
Stewardship opportunities abound! Discover how your talents and interests match up to at least one of the many opportunities. Call the church office to get involved!
