Calling All Gardening Enthusiasts!

Do you love gardening? Consider joining the Weed Folk Team to help keep the grounds beautiful and inviting.

Serve with United Methodist Men & Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity in Lake County is hosting a faith build program that will last all of August, where various faith groups are working on building low-income housing. The Kingswood United Methodist Men’s group has signed Kingswood up for a workday on Saturday August 10, from 8 am to 3 pm. All church members are welcome to join us on that day. Being early in the month we’ll probably be doing framing, but that all depends on how the work progresses on earlier days. Habitat is limiting the size of the group to 12 people with the possibility to have another group on August 24, again limited to 12 people. You can sign up  for either day, but we encourage you to do it early so we can confirm to Habitat that we will have a crew on August 24.  Contact Norm Belew with questions.

Food Pantry

The Food Pantry at the Buffalo Grove campus provides food on an emergency basis to families and individuals from Wheeling Township, which includes surrounding suburbs.  Through the generous donations of food items from Kingswood and other community members, we are able to serve 40-60 families each week.

PADS Homeless Ministry

PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) is a serving ministry of Kingswood Church, seeking to provide temporary shelter, meals, and support for our brothers and sisters without homes and housing.  We have opportunities to serve in both Buffalo Grove and Deerfield.
