Let's Celebrate!

Join us for Easter Worship, 10 am on April 17th at AMC Classic in Durham. Then stick around for the afterparty!

We’ve planned an upbeat, celebratory worship service that is perfect for those who are new to Kindred and/or new to church (and even those who may be skeptical about church). After worship, you’re invited to stick around for a popcorn bar, photo booth, and other fun festivities to fill your Easter morning with joy. 

We can’t wait to see you there!

Bring a Friend

It’s the best time all year to invite someone to join you! Who could you invite?

A big part of Kindred’s mission is to reach out and offer this inclusive, uplifting church community to those in our area who need this kind of church in their lives. Easter gives us a great opportunity to connect with new people since so many people are willing to try out a new church on this celebratory day. So if you know someone who might benefit from checking out Kindred, this Sunday is the perfect time to invite them to come and see what we’re all about. Feel free to mention that all first-time visitors get a free AMC movie pass as a welcome gift!

Mask Policy Update

Beginning Easter Sunday, April 17th, masking during in-person worship will become optional.

For some time now the CDC has categorized the covid transmission risk level as ‘low’ in Durham and Orange counties. This has led to the lifting of mask mandates in many public spaces. In an abundance of caution, we’ve continued to require everyone attending Kindred worship to remain masked. However, since risk levels remain low in our area, we are making masks optional beginning on Easter Sunday. 

That said, for the protection of the most vulnerable, masking will continue to be required for some volunteers and for all adults serving in our childcare area. And, of course, all attendees who want/need to remain masked during worship should absolutely do so.

Be assured that we’re making this change in consultation with local health officials and in conjunction with our mother church, University UMC. We’ve been committed to responsible covid policies throughout this pandemic and that will not change. If you have questions about this policy change, feel free to reach out to Pastor Daniel,
