When we tell our stories we often put ourselves at the center of the story. We believe that we are the protagonist of our stories, that we are the main actor in our lives. The Biblical witness testifies to a different protagonist in our lives. What does it mean to not be the protagonist of our own stories?

This summer, KUMC is hosting its first Family Mission Week, and we want you to be a part of it!
A team of leaders, across three different ministry areas, came together to create a five-day mission event for the whole family. Adults, youth and children will all participate in various service projects throughout the Keller community as well as the greater Fort Worth area. Families with students in 6th grade and under will serve together on short-term projects during the day and return to the comfort of home at night. Youth in 7th through 12th grade will stay overnight at KUMC (Sunday-Thursday) for a similar but separate Mission Week experience. Adult volunteers are needed for the youth portion of the event.
We are reaching out to church members for potential projects. If you need garden renovation, home improvement or something similar please fill out this form by June 15. Requests will be reviewed by our leadership team. We will contact you to let you know the status of your application upon consensus of the feasibility of the project.
