Troy Learning Labs Summer 2015

Troy Learning Labs Summer 2015

There’s no such thing as a stupid question – especially concerning matters of faith. So don’t let anything prevent you from asking what you want to know about the Bible.

We want to know where the Bible came, and why it’s important today. We ponder about the significance of words like “testament” and names like “Habakkuk.” We deliberate about the number existing translations of the Bible, and whether or not the Cliff’s Notes are reliable.

But most of all, we probably want to know 1) how best to read it, and 2) how to make it applicable to our 21st century lives. Since we’re all thinking these things, why not come together as a group and explore these Bible basics. For the 5 Sundays in August, grab your Bible and join Andrea Gibbs at 10:30am (donuts on us), and let’s explore the power of this book together.

Register today!

Troy Star Wars Night featuring K-Rock

Troy Star Wars Night featuring K-Rock

A long time ago, in a galaxy not so
far away...

Troy Summer Nights Began.
The planets aligned,
Families joined forces, and shared
lemonade in the warm summer air.

On this summer night, we
gather as a galaxy for one night,
one purpose: fun.

Let's party with a night of food, a K-Rock performance, activities and an out-of-this-world movie showing of Star Wars.

Join us August 12th from 5:30-11:30 with lawn chairs and light sabers in hand for a special Troy Summer Night and a screening of Star Wars on the Kensington Troy lawn (movie begins at 9:00PM).

Remind Conference (ages 16-26)

The Remind Conference is specifically designed for youth and young adults ages 16-26, to equip them to withstand the challenges and stand with their challengers. The Apostle Paul directed us to “be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Rom. 12:2). That’s why we’ve entitled the conference "reMind: reNewing the Mind; reVolutionizing the Culture." When the minds of our young people are transformed, the culture can be transformed as well.

When: Friday, August 14 (6:00 – 9:30 pm) and Saturday, August 15 (9:00 am – 5:00 pm)

Where: Highland Park Baptist Church (28600 Lahser Rd. Southfield, MI 48034)

Cost: $35 (includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday)

Leadership Gathering 2015

Leadership Gathering 2015

Imagine if 1000 leaders at Kensington were completely equipped and inspired to head in the same direction. . .

Experience this yourself at the 2015 Kensington Leadership Gathering, to be held August 14-15 at our Orion Campus.

What is the Leadership Gathering?
An opportunity for anyone who leads anything at Kensington to gather in one place for a high-energy gathering. The content is vision, inspiration and conversation about the future of the church – both the long-term future as well as the specifics of the 2015/2016 ministry season. The format will include Kensington excellence and fun, top-notch worship, and presenters – both our own and guest speakers.

Is this new?
Yes – it is new! With Kensington’s congregations spreading out geographically, the energy that will come from having the core volunteer leadership together will be awesome.

What are some of the specifics?
It will be at the Orion Campus. It will be two major sessions – Friday night, August 14th and Saturday morning, August 15th (done by lunch time). Each campus will be targeting leaders – leaders of teams, leaders of students and kids, leaders of small groups, leaders of care ministries – every Kensington leader! This is a targeted meeting toward leadership. It is not off-limits to others, but it really is about people who are leading others at Kensington.

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.

Nucleus Singles Retreat 2015

Nucleus Singles Retreat 2015

Our direction determines our destination. Many times we find ourselves in bad places and we wonder how we got there. It's because we set ourselves going in that direction somewhere in the past, not knowing that it would keep us from where we really want to be. We should set our courses based on where we want to be.

At this Nucleus Singles Retreat Chris Zarbaugh (Lead Pastor, Clinton Township Campus) and Josh Korn (Worship Leader, Orion Campus) will lead us on an expedition entitled “GPS: Direction Determines Destination.” Invest in yourself and join us for a weekend of messages and worship designed to help us learn how to navigate our course in the right direction for our true destination.
