Common Worship
Saturdays at 5 pm
Saturday, October 26 KUMC is hosting an event, Finding Your Voice from 4 – 6 pm. Common Worship will not be held on that night to allow for this Special Event
in St. Louis. 
Saturday Night worship at KUMC is becoming something new, 
and you are invited to come and try it out!
Common Worship is…
Casual communal worship Saturdays at 5pm.
Free snacks and coffee.
Children’s church for kiddos.
Free extended childcare on the 3rd Saturday of the month.
Experience the beauty in the Common.
What Can I Expect at Common Worship? 
Common Worship will be a place where people come together for casual, communal worship in a setting that feels more like a coffee shop than a sanctuary. There will be free snacks and coffee.
It will be a place for individuals and families of all ages and all forms to come to worship together. Kids will come in for an opening song, then leave for children’s church. Adults will have time to sing with acoustic music, pray, reflect, and engage in discussion. We will all come back together to share of the bread and cup like Jesus did with his disciples.
On the third Saturday of the month, there will be free extended childcare time for parents to gather away from church to enjoy social time together. Put it on your calendar now, because the first event is planed for Saturday, September 21rst.  Enjoy and evening of food and fellowship at Schnucks Des Peres, 6 – 8:15 pm while your kids play at KUMC.
Common means both ordinary and shared. At Common Worship we will seek to share in community and build relationships, while finding the sacred in the casual and ordinary corners of real life. Together we will discover that common ground is holy ground.
Common Worship has gone to the Dogs!
Blessing of the Animals Saturday, October 19

Bring your fluffy, furry, scaly, and whiskered friends to Common Worship on Saturday, October 19 and praise God outdoors on the KUMC Plaza. Please have them leashed or contained as needed and bring any clean up supplies you might need to care for them during their visit to KUMC.
Come as early as 4:00 pm to browse various pet and animal organizations that will be on hand for the evening. There will be door prizes and lots of fun merchandise to see. And lots of time for all of us and our pets to socialize.
Then stay for worship at 5:00 pm and take part in the Blessing of the Animals during the service. 
October 19 is the third Saturday of the month and that means it’s Saturday Night Out time at Common Worship. Everyone is invited to meet up for fun, food, and fellowship from 6:00 – 8:00 pm immediately after worship at Saturday Night Out. This month let’s meet at Kirkwood Station Plaza to enjoy the great outdoors along with our pets! Free child care will be provided from 6:00 – 8:30 pm this evening at the church. Please pack a bag lunch for your child if they need one during childcare hours. 
We are so excited about this event, but we can’t help the weather. This is an outdoor event that can only take place if the weather cooperates. So let’s pray for fair weather!
In case of rain, we will have to ask you to leave your pets home safe and dry, and still plan to come to enjoy Common Worship indoors in The Commons and Saturday Night Out after. Watch for a future date of Blessing in the Animals if the event is cancelled.
