Ken-Ton Closet

February Outreach

Each month for Outreach we support a different organization. This month's outreach focus is the Ken-Ton Closet.

The mission of the Ken-Ton Closet is to directly improve the quality of life for children ages 0-18 years living in the Village of Kenmore/Town of Tonawanda whose families have economic need. The Closet provides, at no cost, items of daily living such as clothing, school supplies, toiletries, and other materials. It is a grassroots, 100% volunteer-run program.  They also distribute needed items to families experiencing difficulties such as fire losses or emergency foster placement.


The Closet is located in the former Jefferson School (250 Athens Blvd). Families can come in every other month to receive toiletries, 3 - 4 outfits, shoes, and new socks/underwear.


How to give help: We are collecting money to give to KenTon Closet through the end of February. You can write a check to Augustana, write ‘KenTon Closet’ in the memo portion and mail it to

Augustana, or you can donate via  Thank you!


How to receive help: Due to COVD-19, parents need to go to the website to register and schedule

a time slot for shopping. The store is closed for general shopping.

Sunday Worship at 9:30 am

via Zoom

What is a Zoom worship service like?

We have a vibrant worship service each week. Our online congregation is made up of people in WNY and friends of Augustana who live in other states. The congregation can log on starting at 9:00 am. This is a time when people can talk to each other if they like - our updated version of 'coffee (half) hour.'  You choose whether to keep your video screen on or off during this time and for the service.  At 9:30, the service begins, and your microphone will be muted.  It is unmuted during the sign of peace and again near the end of the church service, when Pastor Fred asks for prayer concerns and then leads us in prayer. Pastor Kopp gives a brief children's sermon every week.

Need Help Getting Started?

If you are not familiar with Zoom, contact the church office and we will help you.

Mission Statement

Augustana is a Christian Family in faith that prays together to know Christ and works to make Christ known throughout the community.

Sunday School

We are not offering Sunday School at this time. We are studying the safest way to have the children participate.  When we have a new plan,

we will post it here.

If you would like to receive updates, please call or email the church office.

When we resume Sunday School, we will also look for ways to have safe Family and Youth activities, and ways for kids to be involved in worship and service activities throughout the year. Click here to learn more about Sunday School and Family and Youth Activities that we have done in the past.
