At Kensington, we think marriage is a great idea and one of God's best ways of helping us grow. But like everything worthwhile it requires regular care and feeding. Whether your marriage is thriving, barely surviving or somewhere in between, click here for resources and ideas on strengthening your most important relationship.
Counselors We Trust
Sometimes we need a guide to help us through a hard time, and distinctly Christian counseling can be your best investment. We recommend that you interview several counselors before making a final selection. We also believe that Jesus is at the center of any healing process, but it can be helped by a knowledgeable counselor. If you're looking for professional help in your marriage, family, or personal life, look here for a list of counseling centers in your area that we know and trust.
If you've lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, it may be hard to feel optimistic about anything. GriefShare, a 13-week study to guide you through grief and loss is open to all.

Need a helping hand?
Having a need is what makes us human. Sharing the need is what makes us the Church. TheCommon.org is a web-based tool that connects people with specific abilities to people with matching needs. You can ask for help (I need a ride to the doctor... I need my faucet fixed) or offer help (I can fix appliances... I can bring meals). You can give stuff away (I have an extra fridge... I have a free lawnmower) or get something you need (I need a stove... I need a wheelchair). Simply visit TheCommon.org to register — and match your needs to someone's ability. All for free.

Military Family Support Group
As parents, spouses, family members and friends of loved ones serving our nation in the military, it's tough to travel this uncertain and difficult road alone, and impossible to stand on our own strength. The Military Family Support Group was designed so we can meet others in our unique situation, share experiences, learn from one another, lift up each other and those serving in prayer, and find comfort in an environment grounded in Jesus Christ. We meet on the second Thursday of each month @7pm at Ann & Gary Green's house. For more info or to add the name of someone serving in the military to our prayer list, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
