Debbie and I have been members of Kenwood since 1993 and were baptized here along with our daughters by Pastor Alex. I have served in many roles and positions over the years including several search committees, Mission’s Committee, Nominating Committee, Music Committee, Pastoral Relations Committee, and Diaconate, and was in leadership roles on several of these. I also served as Vice-Moderator and currently serve as one of the administrative leaders of the Christian Disciples Sunday School Class. But my longest-standing passions for serving have been in small group ministry and worship team/music ministry. I believe small groups are a vital part of a church the size of Kenwood. They provide fellowship and friendship. They provide teaching and discussion to grow our faith. They allow us to support each other in prayer and in tangible physical ways. This has been especially true in this past year of COVID. Our Tuesday Small Group has been meeting for over 10 years and is blessed to have a wonderful group of believers at different places in their walk. Worship is what we want to do when we gather each Sunday. Being a part of the music ministry leading our congregation into the worship of our God is a blessing, a privilege, and a responsibility.
