leawood

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.

welcome.

The Leawood Campus is Christ Community’s first campus, located just west of the state line. We are home to individuals and families from all over Johnson County in Kansas, as well as Jackson and Cass counties in Missouri. Whether through our commitment to beautiful and thoughtful worship, service in our community, or an emphasis on connecting our faith to our homes and work places, our desire is to live life the way God designed it. We’d love to have you join us on a Sunday morning!

Better: A Study of Hebrews: Women’s Study

In this study of the Book of Hebrews, we will explore how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 11:40). Through stories of the Old Testament, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Join us as we explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, and grow in learning how to place our hope and faith in Christ alone.

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 will the worship service be like?

At Christ Community, we place a high value on beautiful worship services that feature teaching centered on passages from the Bible. Our hope is that when you attend on a Sunday morning, both your heart (your emotions) and your mind (your intellect) will be engaged and challenged by all that takes place. The service includes singing, prayer, readings, teaching from the Bible, and once a month we celebrate communion together. Every once in a while we use video to illustrate a point or highlight something going on in our community. Simply put, our services reflect our desire to honor God, express our devotion to Jesus, and learn more about what it means to follow Him.

What is the music like?

Most Sundays, our music is led by a piano-based rhythm section (think Billy Joel and his band or, for the younger reader, Ben Folds or Gabe Dixon) and is presented in a contemporary music context. The choice of music is directly related to our service, the Biblical text, and its application – often including a mixture of music, both old and new, that remembers and proclaims who God is and expresses our heartfelt response to His redeeming work in our lives. In addition, there are times in the year we use many different styles and expressions (like a choir around Christmas and Easter, some preliminary jazz tune, or the use of instrumental music before and during communion) that leaves us saying, “Sooner or later you hear something you like.”

There are two services. Are they different?

The 9:00 and 10:45am services are designed to be 75 minutes long and contain the same content. 

What should I wear?

We’re not really worried about that and we’re generally very casual. Just be yourself.

Join a Community Group

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.

Go to our Community Group section to search for a group near you.

Join a Connection Group

Connection Groups are designed to encourage, support, and resource one another on a more personal level than what Sunday mornings can afford.

Visit our Connection Group page to see if there is a group for you.

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.

For details about current opportunities visit our calendar, go directly to our Family and Care page (see link below), or contact families@christcommunitykc.org for more information.

What is Razor's Edge?

Razor’s Edge is a catalytic learning experience, hosted at each of our campuses, that allows participants to engage ideas that have shaped our church and to grow in life habits that bring great transformation. It helps prepare participants to follow Jesus everywhere. Razor’s Edge consists of 11 weeknight gatherings, but truly is a 70-day journey designed to shape the rest of your life. Child care is provided.

Who is it for?

Razor’s Edge is designed for anyone at Christ Community who desires to become a more integral and effective Christ-follower, both in the church and in our community and world. It is designed to train and equip and is generally the basic prerequisite for anyone wishing to serve in a place of leadership at Christ Community. If you have any questions about whether this is the right pathway for you, please contact one of our staff to find out more, or visit our Razor’s Edge for details and registration information.

Fifty & Better Ministries - Leawood Campus

Twice weekly (Mondays and Fridays) Pickleball game from 5:30-8:00 in the Leawood Worship Center.

Men's Ministries

Men’s Ministries seeks to facilitate and encourage authentic friendships among men. We are convinced this is important because men need other men. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? Often men don’t like to admit they need anything. But most men really do enjoy hanging out with other men, though it is often hard to find time to form these relationships. That’s where Men’s Ministries comes in.

Men’s Ministries organizes and supports multiple avenues to encourage these kinds of connections. Some of these happen regularly, some of them happen multiple times a year: Bible studies, prayer breakfasts, Kansas City events, and other enjoyable opportunities designed just for men.

It can be hard to get connected, but this is a good first step! For more information about Men’s Ministries, please email us at men@ChristCommunityKC.org, or call us at 913.685.1161.

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 prayer gatherings, serving opportunities, and fellowship events.

We offer regular opportunities for the women of our church to come together and serve our local body, our community, and our world. A variety of other fellowship events occur throughout the year.

Please join us! For more information about Women’s Ministries, please contact us, or call us at 913.685.1161.

Mix of young singles and married couples

The Young Adult Community at the Leawood Campus is a unique mix of singles and married couples in their 20’s and 30’s who are journeying through life together. We gather periodically to eat, serve, talk about Scripture and relevant topics, and simply have fun.

A great first step to getting connected with young adults at Christ Community is by contacting Darin Lund.

College Student Ministries

Recent High School Graduate Through College-age Students

The four-plus years after high school are arguably some of the most memorable and formative years in a person’s life. That is why we want to be intentional about journeying alongside students during this time. College Ministries at Christ Community exists to encourage and equip students to grow in their relationship with Christ, to connect in community with one another, and engage in the life of the church.

So whether you are in the workforce, at a local community college, or studying across the country, we want to do all that we can to encourage and support you as you journey through these significant years of your life. For more information, email Alan Mercer.

Student Ministries

Thanks for checking out Student Ministries here at our Leawood Campus! Across all of our campuses, we desire to be a caring family of multiplying disciples, influencing our community and world for Jesus Christ. We recognize that the years in middle school and high school are incredibly formational. Therefore, we want to journey alongside our students and parents through this season of life and help each other learn, love, and live into the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Visit our STUDENT MINISTRIES page to find more information.

Children's Ministries

We minister to and nurture children from birth to 5th grade. Our goal is to partner with families as we seek to support and equip them to know, love, and grow in relationship with Christ in a way that will result in a life of worship.

Every developmental and grade-level room provides an intergenerational experience as adult leaders, youth helpers, and children all journey together through a grand metanarrative of the Big God Story. Our goal is to provide relevant and meaningful programs on Sundays and during the week to help children understand they have a part in God’s Story and this faith community as they grow and become deeply committed followers of Christ.
