Care & Help


Sometimes we need a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on, or a listening ear

At Kensington, we don’t pretend life is easy, and you don’t have to pretend you have it all together. We all go through hard times and need the support of others.

If you’re overwhelmed and need someone to talk you through your next steps, call a Campus Care Provider at the Help Bank.

Loss of a loved one can feel especially difficult as the holidays approach.
Kensington offers one-time and ongoing workshops that can help you heal.

Sometimes We Need More Than A Friend

We need resources and guidance to help us through – someone we can trust to give us godly insight and advice. When facing hard times, tough decisions, or traumatic circumstances, we need the help of others.

Trauma Resources

Between the pandemic and school violence, we’ve all been through a lot. And there are personal forms of trauma too. We have gathered videos and resources from national experts to help you navigate trauma in your own life and as you guide your children.

Counselors We Trust

It may also be time to invest in personal counseling. We believe Jesus is at the center of working through the healing process, but an educated, trained professional can help. Whether you need help in your marriage, parenting skills, workplace, or personal life, consider this list of local counselors we trust.

Before making a final decision on a counselor, we encourage you to interview more than one person so that you can find the most appropriate counselor for you.

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.

What is my purpose? What value does the Bible have in my life? How do I pray? How can I grow in confidence to share my faith? These are the big questions that are at the heart of what it means to have a relationship with God. Alpha is a space to explore life’s big questions, to say what you think and to hear other people’s points of view. Over ten-weeks you will explore and discover while listening to weekly topics, participating in table discussion, and developing community. Alpha courses meeting in-person gather around a meal.

You don’t have to come for the whole series—just check it out for the first session and see what you think. No pressure.

Counselors Are Needed After Tragedy

“The aftermath of the Oxford shooting tragedy will undoubtedly result in traumatic symptoms and experiences across our communities for quite some time. Healing the brain through evidence-based therapies is absolutely possible with clinical guidance. There is a valuable village of Trauma Therapists with collective resources standing by for Oxford, for both direct and secondary survivors to engage in therapy. Until then, we honorably hold a sacred space, as students, families, staff and school partners continue to mourn.” -Laura Azoni, LMSW, Founder of Sanctuary Services

Birmingham Campus

We are offering a time for our congregation to gather after the 10am service for prayer in the Groves Auditorium, 20500 W 13 Mile Rd, Beverly Hills, MI 48025.

On Sunday evening, Dec 5, parents of high school and middle school students are invited to the second half of our Edge gathering at Genesis Church, 309 N Main St, Royal Oak, MI 48067, at 6:15pm. We will have a breakout to equip parents in caring for themselves and processing pain with their children in times of tragedy.

Learning Labs

Together Again

updated June 23, 2021

It’s been life-giving to be in-person for our weekend services since last July when we reopened. If you haven’t yet, we invite you to join us in person sometime soon.

Reservations and ticketing have been discontinued at all our campuses.

Masks are optional at all services, events, and ministry gatherings for kids, students, and adults. We know that everyone needs to make the right health decisions for themselves and their family, so if you feel comfortable removing your mask, you may. And if you’d like to continue wearing a mask or face covering, you may do that as well. This is a personal choice that only you can decide what is best for yourself when attending in person at Kensington.

If you are sick, are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or have possibly been exposed to COVID-19, please plan to stay home and participate in our services via our many online streaming options.

At the start of the pandemic, Kensington’s Executive Team commissioned a group of staff members as a COVID Task Force to establish protocols and procedures for the safety of our church community. Thanks for sticking with us throughout all the changes and adjustments over the past 15 months.

We’re grateful to be together again!
