What to Expect in Worship

Purples, blacks, rough fabrics and melodic tunes. All the Traditional sounds and sights of Lent are a part of our worship experience this season. We see and read about Jesus on the cross. We tell the story with our Lenten banner and with our choir music.  This is the season to reach down into the depths of your human experience and feel God’s mercy for your sin.

 Make a Sacrifice

Seeing Jesus make the greatest sacrifice for us leads us to wonder what we can be doing for God that we have not been doing.  The congregational ask is for an additional offering towards the Steeple Repair Fund. We are seeking a total of $35,000 to make repairs this Spring. The legacy of a well maintained building is not just for “us.” This building is about the future children and adults who want to worship and learn about Jesus. 

Do a Mission

March 7 we will be serving at the Food Pantry in Elburn. We also are making sleeping mats out of plastic bags for a homeless ministry in Aurora. 


A Transformative Journey with Jesus

 In this holy season our walk with the Scriptures will recall the last week of Jesus’ life. This practice is from ancient Christianity when new Christians we trained in the deep meaning of the faith and given an opportunity on Easter to receive baptism and new life in Christ. 

 Our renewal begins with repentance. We will examine our sin and let God’s forgiveness take us to a new place. 

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday will feature movies instead of liturgy. The February 14th event focuses on Jesus’ decision to be the suffering servant. The March 29th event walks through the whole life of Christ and ends in resurrection.

Come with your KUMC friends as we transform into beautiful believers.

Worship in Kaneville Illinois

We worship in a historic sanctuary during the cold months and in a garden chapel during the warmer months. Some prefer to worship at home due to physical limitations or to a demanding schedule. The live feed on Facebook keeps them engaged. Weekend emails keeps the announcements and prayer concerns at their fingertips. 

The service is traditional, but casual and often has a gospel feel. There is a time of Fellowship afterwards where the ministry of loving each other happens. 

A talented keyboardist leads our music bringing memorable songs from a Choir, a Praise Team or soloist each Sunday.

We follow worship from printed materials, but it isn’t hard to follow the screen without them.  Children are invited to leave worship around 10 am for a VBS style lesson at Kidzone. After worship all generations participate in sharing prayer joys and concerns and any longer announcements. 

Holy Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month and on special occasions. We serve from a common loaf and cup at the front of the sanctuary, and others pick up bread and juice cups as they enter for worship and partaking of the elements from their pews Worshippers at home are encouraged to find bread and a beverage to bless and eat.

Participants usually arrive between 9;15 and 9:30 am. The front entrance leads you into the fellowship area. An usher will show you how to find the worship space. An elevator is available at the back of the church building to take you up to the sanctuary level. Parking is available at the front of the church and in the back. We have a “grassy parking lot” behind the tall pine trees for overflow. 

Facebook users comment a “good morning.”  In person worshippers find the greeter at the Sanctuary entrance where they pick up their bulletin.  Ushers collect the offering during service now, and we all rise to sing the doxology. 

Worship with us for six weeks before you decide on your next church to visit. We never forget the people we meet in person or online. Call the pastor for a phone, in person, or zoom visit. We want to meet you.
