what to expect

We’re excited you’re interested in Christ Community. We know contemplating a visit to a church for the first time can lead to questions. We hope the section below will help answer a few of the questions you might have about worshiping at Christ Community. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us.

What is the music like?

Our music is a blend of contemporary and traditional, drawing from all types of American musical styles. We sing mostly contemporary Christian songs, hymns, spirituals, and occasionally an original song written by the band. You’ll usually see a piano, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drums, bass, horns and several vocalists leading each week. We project the lyrics to each song, encouraging our congregation to sing and worship the Lord.

About the Services

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. Each week, we invite all Christ followers regardless of church membership to come together to celebrate Communion.* Join us as we journey and worship together on Sundays at 10:00am.


Tell me about the teaching?

Our teaching is expositional in style, meaning our sermons are based on a passage of Scripture. We desire for our teaching to be faithful to the Bible, centered on the good news of the forgiveness of sins in Jesus, and relevant to life.

What should I wear?

There’s no dress code and we’re generally very casual. If you feel like wearing a suit, go ahead, and if you feel like wearing t-shirt and jeans, that’s great too. Just be yourself.

Community Groups are designed to be a place where people can engage with others from our church on a more personal level than what Sunday mornings can afford. Community Groups are small groups of people who meet in homes for the purpose of growing in the three relationships of the Christian life: our relationship with God, each other, and our city and world. Groups meet weekly during our fall, winter, and spring sessions.

Our 50+ group meets regularly throughout the year to laugh together, play together, share life with one another, and serve our broader community. We’re an informal group and a really great place to connect. For more information about upcoming events, see our CALENDAR.

A Caring Family

Our mission at Christ Community is “to be a caring family of multiplying disciples influencing our community and world for Jesus Christ.” The core of our Family and Care Ministries is to design and offer ministries that magnify and emphasize the “caring family” part of our mission. We are working to establish the family as God intended it to be.

Family Enrichment and Education

We offer enrichment and education opportunities (classes, conferences, and retreats) in order to strengthen marriages and to help parents sharpen their parenting skills. For details about current opportunities visit our calendar or contact families@christcommunitykc.org for more information.

Counseling and Professional Assistance

Here at Christ Community we recognize that sometimes life and circumstance may require you to connect with a professional for help. Should you find yourself or someone you care about in need of professional help and you are uncertain where to turn, please contact one of our pastors and they can share with you ideas of counselors and professionals with whom you might connect.

Men of Brookside

Men’s Summer Book Studies: The Common Rule

This summer, join men of Brookside Campus to study the book The Common Rule, by Justin Whitmel Earley. The Common Rule urges us to consider our habits in a different light and to embrace a new way of life in which we self-consciously limit ourselves in order to pursue what is best for us and for our neighbors. Earley gives practical ideas for how to tame your phone, media and calendar for a life of intention with more joy and freedom.

Each member will need to purchase their own copy of the book HERE.

Choose from three different days/times – sign up below! Upon signing up, your leader will contact you with more information.

Connecting, encouraging, equipping, & serving women

Welcome to Women’s Ministries at Christ Community. The heart of our Women’s Ministries is to welcome, encourage, connect, and serve women as we journey together. We offer a variety of ways to connect for women of all ages and stages of life, including Bible studies, a play and enrichment group (Parents of BKS), serving opportunities, and fellowship events.

This summer gather outdoors with other women to connect in friendship and grow in understanding of God’s Word and its application to our lives. Choose between three studies, all launching in June, meeting at congregant’s homes. Participants will need to purchase their own book/materials.

In order to allow for social distancing, we are intentionally limiting the size of groups. So, please only register if you are sure you will not miss more than two meetings of the session. If you have concerns about this, please reach out to Holly Justice

Women’s Independent Study – “Truthfilled”

 Online Study

If you’re looking for a great Bible study to do on your own or with a group of friends, consider Ruth Cho Simons’ Truthfilled, a seven week study of the book of Colossians. Lifeway is offering the videos for each session for free when you sign up HERE , with a new episode released each Thursday. The study is most beneficial accompanied by the Truthfilled Study book.

Videos will available for free on lifeway.com until August 5.

If you’re college-age, in your 20’s, or 30’s, you’re welcome to join the young adult community as we seek to build relationships with one another and be connected more deeply to the life of the church as a whole. We gather on the second Sunday evening of each month for an informal fellowship at each other’s homes, as well as for occasional lunches, service projects, and other events. To stay up to date on Brookside Young Adult activities, check out our Facebook page. Contact Taylor Fair with any questions.

Middle School and High School

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and learn more about who we are and what we are about. We aim to live out our church’s calling to be a caring family of multiplying disciples influencing our community and world for Jesus Christ. Student Ministries is the place to connect and grow for any and all students who are in 6th – 12th grade. Here, relationships begin and are deepened, and spiritual formation takes place. And we have a lot of fun while we’re at it! Visit our Brookside Student Ministries section to find out more about our program.

Children's Ministries

We value children at Christ Community and our Sunday morning worship gatherings are intentionally intergenerational, as people from all ages and stages of life worship God together as a community. We encourage families and children to worship together, but we also provide a time of playful formation for children. We provide age-appropriate programming for children birth through 5th Grade during our 9:00 & 10:45am service.

Parents may check in their children at the Children’s Ministries room before the service begins. For children participating in the worship service, Kid Connect activity sheets are available at the back of the worship center. These are designed to help children and families engage in God’s word and in the local church. If you have any questions, please contact Anna Lynn Rolf.
