Karen Kennedy

Director of Promotions

I support our staff and our members by promoting all the marvelous activities and events at Gloria Dei to as many people as possible and in as many formats as is available. This includes weekly and seasonal publications, creating promotional materials, such as logos, banners, displays, and printed materials.

Although my husband and I, are officially elated empty-nesters, we enjoy visits to Washington to see our daughter and her husband and our new granddaughter. Recently, we are very pleased that our son, John, moved back to Des Moines. We love to laugh, bike, travel and serve our community.

Is not this the fast that I choose… Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him Isaiah 58:6a and 7

When I was young in the faith, Isaiah 58 captured my heart and continues to fuel an overwhelming desire to provide physical help to the poor and marginalized. My heart simply aches for those in need.
