About Us


Kenwood Sanctuary

We are …


a body of believers in Jesus Christ, who unite together to serve God and God’s people through our worship and our works.

As a congregation of the United Church of Christ we embrace our church’s legacy of working for justice and the full humanity of all humankind and seek to live into its vision: “United in Christ’s love, a just world for all.” We take seriously Jesus’ imperative to care for the “least of these.”

As people of African heritage, we fully embrace our history and culture, and seek to uplift them in our ministry and our lives.

As a church with historic landmark status, we appreciate the immense value of history yet we live and minister fully in the present with great expectation for the future. We attempt to model the Akan principle of Sankofa that we must reach back to bring the best of our past into our present in order to make positive forward progress.
