Clinton Twp "This Phase Matters" Volunteer Training

Clinton Twp "This Phase Matters" Volunteer Training

“Phase.” It’s the word we use to encourage a new parent who wonders if their baby will ever sleep through the night, as well as the parent of a teenager navigating new battlegrounds of attitude and desired independence. But a phase is so much more…

A phase isn’t something to wish away or hurry through, because once a phase is over, it’s over. We only know a child once as a 4 year-old, and in 52 short weeks, that child is a 5 year-old.

A “phase” is a time frame in a child’s life when we can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence their future. Each phase has significant relationships to influence, present realities to understand, and future implications to navigate. And each window of time holds a distinct purpose. Thinking about the life of a child from zero through eighteen in phases is a simple reminder that something significant is happening RIGHT NOW.

If you currently serve in KKids, Breakaway, or Edge, or if you might be interested in volunteering this fall, this is the night for you!

Registration opens August 1st.

Troy Baby Dedication Parent Class

Troy Baby Dedication Parent Class

This class is for parents who would like to learn more about dedicating or baptizing their child.

We do this ceremony for babies and young children up to age four.You do not need to be a member of Kensington, but we ask that you are a regular attendee.

The first step is a mandatory Parent Class that you need to attend. This one-hour class is informal, more like a discussion, and we want you to ask any questions that you may have so you feel comfortable and enjoy the ceremony. You can have your child/children in the Nursery or Kids program during this class. At the class you will receive Bible teaching concerning baptism & dedication for babies.

After you have taken the class, you will receive a special link to register for the ceremony. In addition, we don't do this ceremony the months of Christmas or Easter.

If you have any further questions, please e-mail Jihee Kim at jihee.kim@kensingtonchurch.org
