Church-Wide Cookout and Congregational Meeting | TODAY
Expand
Gather together at the Olathe Campus on Sunday evening, September 11! Due to the growing size of our church family, our meeting we will be held in two identical sessions: 4-5:30pm and 6:30-8:00pm (you can attend either session). Limited childcare will be available during both sessions for infants through 2nd grade. Between the sessions, starting at 5pm, we will all gather as one church family for a fantastic cookout with music, inflatables, and an exciting announcement about a new initiative that will expand our ability to impact Kansas City. Bring lawn chairs and a nut-free dessert to share.
