CELEBRATING 30 YEARS

Changing Lives
Strengthening Churches
Transforming the World

Love Your Neighbor

On October 7, 1990, a new church – with no building and a young pastor – launched with worship in the small chapel of the McGilley Funeral Home on State Line Road. This October, Church of the Resurrection celebrates our 30th Anniversary!

Today a lot is different, but one thing has not changed since 1990: we continue to welcome all to join us as we build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.

Spreading Kindness Across the City

Over the next 30 days, we are encouraging every child, teen and adult in our community to focus on demonstrating love and kindness. We’ll share our theme of “Love Your Neighbor” with yard signs and t-shirts, but the real impact will come in the tangible ways we join together to show love to our neighbors.

30 Acts of Kindness in 30 Days

Jesus commanded us to love one another. Join in flooding our community with random acts of kindness as an expression of our faith. Accept the challenge to find 30 ways to share love over the next 30 days.

30 for 30 Food Drive

Oct. 10 and 17, 9-11 am
For our anniversary celebration, Resurrection is challenging everyone who is able to donate either 30 lbs. of food or $30 to purchase food for our neighbors in need. 30 lbs. can feed a family for a week.

Share Kindness and Pass It On

Download and print the cards below, then use them when you share kindness with simple acts like paying for someone’s cup of coffee, dropping cookies off at a neighbor’s house, or writing that long overdue note. Then encourage the recipient to pass it on when they share kindness with someone else.

Looking for Yard Signs?

The cost of shipping yard signs makes it unrealistic for us to send them to your home, but if you live in the Kansas City area you can call our Resurrection locations to see if there are any left for you to pickup. 

If you don’t live in Kansas City, you can download the art files for the signs below and give them to a print shop in your area to print for you.
