Set in the southern part of Kansas City, the Leawood Campus sits (pretty much) right on the state line of Kansas and Missouri. Our worship gatherings reflect our makeup: an intergenerational collection of individuals and families from different communities with diverse callings and distinct gifts. We come together to celebrate God’s redeeming work, encouraging one another as we strive to be integral and influential apprentices of Jesus Christ. While our style of worship is contemporary in nature, blending both old and new, our commitment as a worshiping community is to beautiful and thoughtful worship anchored in Bible-centered, relevant teaching.
Tuesday Night @ Leawood courses offer helpful support across a variety of needs, in a relaxed, welcoming, and friendly setting. All courses run from 6:30-8:00pm. Click the titles below to learn more and register.*
*Registration for childcare is separate. Once you register for a class, you will receive a confirmation email that provides you with a link to register for childcare.

Language is essential for understanding Christ Community leadership.
Razors Leadership Pathway is the place where men and women at Christ Community are “sharpened” (Proverbs 27:17) and refined as leaders so that they are razor-sharp, prepared to lead with integrity of heart and skillful hands (Psalm 78:70-72) in the local church and in their community and world. This is a 10-week course offered every fall.

It’s not about perfect parenting. It’s parenting with an eternal perspective, not just focusing on behavior.
The Spiritual Parenting course empowers parents to be the primary nurturers of their children’s faith. Families will be transformed as they learn how to create space for God-encounters in everyday life. This class is based on the content from Michelle Anthony’s powerful Spiritual Parenting book. The language of Spiritual Parenting will grow with your child for a lifetime, building them up and reminding them God is at the center of everything.

How can the Living Hope provide you with an identity, future, and the hope to sustain you day by day?
Join us as we walk through 1 Peter in this nine-session Bible study by Jen Wilkin. In this book, Peter, a man of faith and flaws and an eyewitness to the life of Christ, challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.

Ever wonder what you should say when you talk to yourself? We talk to ourselves all the time, disparaging who we are instead of telling ourselves the truth about who God says we are.
Me, Myself and Lies deals with our destructive self-talk. In this study, Jennifer Rothschild takes us through the things we commonly say to ourselves, teaching us to practice biblical soul-talk. This study encourages women to replace hidden negative thoughts with positive truths from God.

Summer Bible Study
The summer is a great time to enjoy a different rhythm, reconnect with friends, and grow in Christian community. If you are a recent high school graduate or are of college age you should join us this summer for our study in the book of Galatians. We will be gathering during second service on Sunday mornings at 10:45 in the Student Center starting in early June. We will have food, so come hungry. This is also a great place to invite friends who may be interested in exploring the Christian faith.
Each Sunday we will spend some time hanging out together, enjoying good food, and exploring the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Galatians. This is an amazing book that helps us see the distinction between the grace of the gospel and our natural tendency to earn God’s approval through being good enough. Or, as Martin Luther observed in his study of Galatians, “The law says, ‘Do this,’ and it is never done. Grace says, ‘believe in this,’ and everything is already done.”
We hope to see you on Sunday mornings or at one of our social gatherings throughout the summer.
Join a community group, designed to help connect, build authentic relationships, and encourage one another in our faith.
