FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Relationships take time to build. At Kensington, we create the space and time for these relationships to take root through small groups. Groups gather to talk about their faith, as well as the joys and hurts of life. Kensington small groups meet in a variety of locations and virtually to study the Bible or follow a topic-based curriculum. Groups are a great opportunity to pursue God and connect with others on a similar journey. God designed us to live in community!

Kensington small groups are listed online. You can filter groups by campus, day of the week, type of group and keyword. When you see a group that you want to learn more about, click the “Contact Leader” button to fill out an interest form and the leader will contact you. We encourage you to ask questions. If you want to join the group, simply let the leader know!

At Kensington, groups form around common interests, life stages, or passions. Consider what you would like to study or experience. We have groups that play together, eat together, read books together, and study the Bible together. It is all about creating a community that is experiencing transformation through Jesus.

Don’t be shy about trying out a small group. Sometimes the first group you choose isn’t the right fit and that’s okay as long as you just try another group!

Here is what we look for in leaders at Kensington: People who know how important it is to live in community and how meaningful it is to invest in others. People who know that the growth in their faith has a lot to do with the way they are connected at Kensington and because people invested in them. People who want others to experience belonging too.

Leading a group is not about knowing all the answers. Leading a group is about determining what you want to study and inviting others to do it with you. It is developing relationships with God and with others. Once you commit to lead, our discipleship team will train you, encourage you and coach you.

Group leaders set the schedule and tone for the group. Group leaders develop relationships with Kensington staff leaders and other volunteers to stay connected and informed. Group leaders help their people take a next step in their faith.

Financial Peace University (FPU)

Financial Peace University (FPU) is a catalyst to help people live in financial freedom and enable them to have a posture of openhandedness. We have witnessed numerous Kensington families experience life change as a result of applying Biblical truths to their personal finances. The real blessing is seeing people create lives of margin that allow them to hear and respond to the Lord’s calling on their lives.

Please email discipleship@kensingtonchurch.org with any questions.

Bible Basics

Whether you are brand new to the Bible or have been reading it for decades, Bible Basics is a course that will help you understand the overall flow of the Bible. Over the course of several weeks, learn how the Bible came from the original writers to the English versions we have today. We’ll look at the big-picture story of the Bible and how all the individual books add to the whole. We’ll even learn a little about the history of the Jewish nation. But most of all, we’ll grow in our awe of the amazing author of this amazing book!
