Worship Opportunities

We have 3 worship opportunities each Sunday.


Sermons available for Sunday, June 25, 2017

Don was on vacation this week, so we had a special treat with 3 special sermons this week. Steve delivered the message "living well" at the 11 am service, Alisha delivered the message "together" at the 9 am service, and Walter delivered the message "Three Must-Dos for Christian Living" at the 8:30 am service. These messages are now available. Click on the Subscribe button in the right column to hear these and other sermons from this year. Then click on the Sermon title to access the file. You can also listen on iTunes by clicking on the Kern UMC Sermons link under the pulpit.

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