Spring Practice Begins for a Generous Summer

In preparation for a Generous Summer, the Kern Church Generosity Committee invites you to join in their Spring Practice for Generous Living.

One of the exercises of our Spring Practice is to read daily scriptures about Generosity. Here are some examples to start your practice:

Luke 19:8 - https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Luke-19-8/
Proverbs 19:17 - https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Proverbs-19-17/
2nd Corinthians 9:7 - https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/2-Corinthians-9-7/
Proverbs 11:24 - https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Proverbs-11-24/

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.
