Hundreds of volunteers are needed to provide radical hospitality during our 10 worship services on December 23 and 24. Each of these serving roles plays an integral part in helping our members and guests experience the Kingdom of God here on Earth as we share the light of Christ this Christmas. Please consider how you might join our team in making this Christmas meaningful through these special worship experiences.

Help us offer a warm Resurrection welcome to our first time guests by delivering a mug. It only takes about 60 seconds to make a big impact. Mugs can be picked up from the mugging shelves located in Building A near the Connection Point. Simply pick up a mug and deliver it to our guests within 48 hours. Tips sheets are available to answer any questions you might have or you can watch the short video above.
Other ways you can get involved in the Mug Ministry include:
Become a Backup Mugger! Backup Muggers help deliver mugs that are leftover on the shelves after worship services on the weekend. They keep a set of mugs at home or in their car and will receive an email with a map to deliver a first time guest a mug. They choose the zip codes they would like to deliver to. Most backup muggers deliver 2-3 mugs a month.
Help us get the mugs ready for delivery! Mug Mappers serve once a month after the service of their choice. They create and print the maps to our guests homes, stuff them in mugs and place them on the shelves. It generally takes about 20-30 minutes after services on the weekend.
Mug Stuffers serve at their convenience during the week readying mugs for the mappers. You'll stuff mugs with inserts that contain information about Resurrection and make sure we have enough mugs ready for the weekend.
For questions about Mugging Ministry contact Melanie Hill at (913) 232-4173, or email using the form below.
Section Greeters lead the charge for radical hospitality by noticing, giving personal attention, and providing excellent follow-through to everyone who comes into their section. Section Greeters help establish a greater sense of connection with those who sit in their sections by welcoming them and learning their names. They help make a large church feel smaller and more welcoming.

Explore the many opportunities available for partnering with Hondurans to transform their communities. Each trip has a purpose, some of which are listed below:
Honduras, located in Central America between Guatemala and Nicaragua, is a country of mountains, forests and farms. There are more than 7 million people living in this country, which is about the size of Louisiana. Most Honduras speak Spanish, although the Amerindian/mestizo population may speak other Spanish dialects. English is widely spoken in the north. Resurrection teams usually fly into the capital city of Tegucigalpa, and some take a day to visit the Maya ruins at Copán, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Honduras is one of the poorest regions in Central America; its economy is primarily agricultural and the annual per capital income is about $2,500 USD.
Resurrection partners with the Methodist Church in Honduras, working mostly with the Methodist Church in El Obraje and the Cristo Resucitado Methodist Church in Ciudad España.
Through our partnership with the Methodist Church of Honduras, we sell Honduran coffee at The Spring, our coffee shop at Resurrection Leawood. Purchasing this coffee helps transform Honduran communities by:
The coffee, which is Rainforest Alliance Certified, is produced with sustainable agricultural practices to help conserve natural resources, ecosystems and wildlife, preserve worker's rights and benefits, and create a positive impact on the local community.
Coffee grown in the shade of the forest canopy protects the plants from rain and sun, helps maintain the soil quality and reduces need for insect control because a greater number of natural wildlife live in the habitat.
Due to increasing demand for coffee, many traditional farms have converted to sun growth plantations where the tropical forest is cut down, producing a higher yield for the short-term, but also greater soil erosion and pesticide use.
For just $37.50/month ($450/year) you can provide a child with a private faith-based school education at the Juan Wesley School in Ciudad España. This amount will provide tuition, books and materials and a school uniform for your sponsored child. Your child will be able to write to you each year to tell you about their progress, and they will be monitored to assure that they achieve the school's academic goals.
Child sponsors who join a short-term serve team to Honduras have opportunities to meet the child they sponsor, interact with other Juan Wesley students and support the school. Learn more or sponsor a child by downloading and filling out this form.
