1. Christ’s Cupboard
On the first Thursday of each month our church holds a community food pantry. The items we give are ones which are not covered by local food stamps such as laundry detergent. In addition to trying to meet physical needs, we also begin with a 10-15 minute devotional where we lay out the gospel plainly and explicitly.
2. Crossroads Family Ministries
Crossroads is a Christ-centered crisis pregnancy center. They offer classes for young mothers on pregnancy, budgeting, parenting, etc. and give out much needed supplies such as diapers, formula, and cloths. Additionally, they also provide adoption counseling and keep a room of supplies for local foster parents. Most importantly, all the ministries of this center are motivated by and stem from the gospel. In this way, they not only want to help these ladies physically, but they hope that their hearts will be transformed through the saving power of Jesus.
3. Church Planting Partnerships
In June 2015 our church began partnering with two church plants located in the Kansas City area: The Bhutanese Baptist Church and Mosaic Bible Fellowship. It is our hope that this partnership will grow, as together we seek to advance the gospel throughout Missouri and our world.
Founded by Dr. M.A. Thomas, this organization seeks to provide Gospel-centered orphan care all throughout India and provides theological training for indigenous pastors and missionaries. Click here to learn more.
2. Operation Christmas Child
Every year our church gathers together to pack over 600 shoe boxes with toys, toothbrushes, washcloths, etc. to send to children all over the world. “Packing Night” has become a fun-filled family event every November. It’s a great time for fellowship and corporate ministry.
