happy birthday.

The story of Christ Community is a story of bold faith.

2019 marks thirty years of Christ Community’s faithful and fruitful presence in Kansas City as we have sought to be a caring family of multiplying disciples influencing our community and world for Jesus Christ. As we look back on three decades and look forward to fruitful times ahead we want to celebrate!

In our thirty years as a church, we’ve witnessed God respond again and again to our requests for help, support, resilience, resources, and courage.

To celebrate our Turning 30 season, we’ll be hosting several special events throughout this year, which are listed below. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to gather and celebrate with you and give thanks for what God has done, and to pray with bold faith for God’s continued blessing as we move forward in our shared mission.

Global Prayer Calendar

Please join together with people from across our campuses to pray for all our global partners and the specific requests they have shared with us.

AVAILABLE:  Pick up a MONTHLY prayer calendar at church, or print from the link below.

summer of service

This year marks 30 years of Christ Community’s faithful and fruitful presence as a church in Kansas City. We have a lot of great things planned to celebrate and one of those elements is what we are calling Summer of Service. Because we as a church desire to give ourselves away for the sake of our city, we wanted to create some intentional spaces where our people can join in the work that God is doing in and through our outreach partners around the KC metro area.

Regardless of what campus you attend, you can sign up to serve with any of our partners during the summer months. There will be opportunities for individuals, families, and large groups to serve together. We also hope that these opportunities will provide the chance for our church to deepen in partnership, grant exposure to the work God is doing in our city, and encourage greater collaboration and involvement with our partners year round.

Please look at the details below outlining all of the various service opportunities this summer. You are welcome to participate in as many as you would like. There is a registration link for each service opportunity as well as contact information for the respective point person. We hope you will join us as we seek to give ourselves away for the good of our city and the glory of Christ.
