Worship Opportunities

We have 3 worship opportunities each Sunday.

Camp in the Community (CITC)

From 9:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday, June 19–23, Kern is partnering with Valley View UMC to host Holston Conference’s CITC. Children in rising K–8 grades are eligible to attend. CITC registration is open to the community. Space is limited to 60 children. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and spaces reserved upon completion and submission of registration forms only. Visit the display in the Narthex to pick up forms, or download the form from the left column. Confirmation and more information will be provided for campers closer to the event.

Kern is now enrolled in the Kroger Community Rewards Program

Great news! Kern has been accepted in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. If you have a Kroger Plus card, you can now enroll your card so that Kern will receive a donation each time you shop at Kroger. You can go to http://krogercommunityrewards.com/ 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. If you do not have a Kroger Plus Card, it would be a great time to get one, and sign it up for Kern.
