News & Updates


Conversations has been canceled this evening due to the weather and icy roads. As many of you know we depend on many volunteers every Wednesday Night for teaching, cooking, set up, and tear down. Many of these volunteers arrive early in the day to make Conversations possible. In light of that fact, we have canceled Conversations so that these volunteers would not have to drive this morning while the roads are particularly icy and dangerous.

We are hopeful by this evening that the roads will be better. So if anyone would like to get out of the house and enjoy some fellowship, a group of people will be going to El Maguey’s Mexican Restaurant which is right next to the church by Casey’s (7831 N Oak Trafficway, Kansas City, MO 64118) at 6PM

Congregational Meeting February 10th

We will have a congregational meeting in the ministry center shortly after second service (beginning approximately 12:30PM) on Sunday, February 10, to review the 2019 budget. We will also hear about important summer plans for the church.

New Gashland Ministry Job Position Available

We are now accepting applications for a Little Lambs Ministry Director. The part-time position is NOT primarily a child care position but rather a MINISTRY position with around 10 hours required per week. We are looking for someone who is passionate about ministry to young children and their families, and for someone who is a self-starter, reliable and detail-oriented.

For 2019, the Discipleship Team is shifting the focus of the nursery from mainly childcare to be more ministry oriented. We will refer to our nursery now as the Little Lambs Ministry. We hope that more people will join us in ministering to our youngest members, following our commitment at their baptism to partner in raising them in the Lord.

Coffee Help Needed!

The Gashland Helps Team has an opportunity for people who are interested in enhancing the experience of people who attend services/Sunday School on Sunday mornings.

By volunteering a few hours of your time one Sunday each month, to prepare and put out coffee, tea, water and lemonade (and hot chocolate on chilly Sundays) along with packaged snacks, you can help ensure that those joining us are warmly welcomed as they mingle in the lobby before and between services.

The task is not at all complex and training will be provided so you become an expert in no time at all. Many who have taken advantage of this rewarding opportunity have done so as couples, since the most efficient way to do this seems to be 2 person teams. So spouses, friends and siblings are ideal!

If you are interested, Please contact Teri Burgen at or 816.809.5249. You can also contact Emily in the office.
