Q. What gets you motivated to come to church on Sunday morning?
God, Jesus Christ, and the people at KCC!
Q. What has your faith journey been?
Lori was raised and confirmed as a Catholic. Rem has been part of the Congregational faith tradition my whole life and was raised at Peace Dale Congregational Church. We were out of touch with church for about fifteen years but started wondering how to teach our son about God. My sister-in-law told me to check out Kingston Congregational Church. So I went to one service, listened to the sermon and thought, “This is what I’ve been missing.” The rest is history and our son was confirmed at KCC on May 19, 2013.
