Support BSA Venture Crew 008 March 28th

BSA Venture Crew 008 is having a BBQ on Saturday March 28th from 5pm to 9pm, in the Kern Family Life Center. The cost of the BBQ dinner will be $5.00 per plate and you will get a pulled pork sandwich, side of fries, and cole slaw with a drink. The money raised form this and other fund raisers goes to help offset the high cost of our outings.

Great news! Kern has been accepted in the Kroger Community Rewards Program.

You can go to to enroll your card or stop by the church office to enroll your card for "Kern United Methodist Church". Please contact Mike Cox if you need assistance.
