KenCrest Honors Support from Five SEPA Congregations

Christ’s Lutheran Church in Oreland, PA and Reformation Lutheran Church in Media, PA were two of the eleven recipients of the 2019 KenCrest Community Champions.  Gloria Dei Shining Star Committee, St. James Lutheran Church, Limerick and St. Peter’s Thrift Shop were Honorable Mention recipients.

Every year KenCrest takes a moment to celebrate leaders in the community who go above and beyond for the KenCrest family. Whether they are individual volunteers, small businesses, local corporations, or advocates for children and the intellectually disabled-they are each a champion in their own right.

The 2019 Community Champions event was hosted at the Sheraton Valley Forge Hotel on Friday, March 15 with over 200 in attendance.
