Hello Resurrection Overland Park,

The Grand Opening weekend is here! We began this journey together just over three months ago. Together, we are launching a new campus and a new church in the heart of the Overland Park neighborhood. I have been praying for you, for us, and for our community. It is a big weekend and just the beginning of what God will do within and through us.

Join me, Pastor Adam Hamilton, and our team for this exciting, historic beginning, Sunday, August 11, 9:30 am and 11 am. Pastor Adam will preach live with a message about who we are as people of faith with purpose and vision as we welcome everyone, follow Jesus, and serve others. It will be a particularly poignant message considering the tragic events in Kansas City and across our nation.

We are launching with two worship services, two distinct experiences and formats, that engage the heart and mind. At 9:30 am, BJ Huffman and the band will lead modern worship with inspired music and the live message. At 11 am, Jenny Nehrbass and the choir will lead traditional worship with beautiful music and the live message. KiDSCOR is excited to welcome kids as they learn about Jesus in Sunday School. Feel free to grab some coffee as you join us in the worship space.

We are expecting many people this weekend and so in any way you can, greet others, welcome guests to our campus, and share the love of Christ with each other. If you are a longtime member, you might park farthest away from the entrance, toward 95th Street, or back in the neighborhood to provide parking for others. I am proud that we are a community that cares for and welcomes others with a friendly smile.

Also, take a moment to invite someone to the grand opening. One person sent me a Facebook message yesterday saying they’ve invited as many of their neighbors as possible. That's awesome! This is a great chance to invite your neighbor, a good friend, or colleague. It is also a good chance to invite someone you just met! Most people will join you at church if you extend an invitation.

Finally, let me share with you what your campus staff team did this week. In preparation for the grand opening, and in an effort to offer an encouragement and blessing to the local businesses near our campus at 95th and Antioch, we delivered 90 boxes of cookies, totaling 600 cookies, to 90 unique businesses (including the fire station!). We also stopped by several businesses in downtown Overland Park. Simply, we want to meet our neighbors, work to be good neighbors, and share our excitement as we get this campus started. Almost everyone was excited to get cookies! Thank you to our Matthew’s Ministry friends who baked all the cookies for us.

I am thrilled with the staff team we have assembled at Resurrection Overland Park! And it is a privilege to lead our campus. Briefly, here is a recap of our team:

  • Suzy Ayres is our Director of Operations and Community Life
  • BJ Huffman is our Director of Modern Worship
  • Lauren Cook is our Director of Children’s Ministry
  • Jenny Nehrbass is our Director of Traditional Worship
  • Stephanie Campbell is our Office Coordinator and Administrative Assistant
  • Adam Hartley is our Tech Producer.

I’ve included a photo of our team below.

We are still a work in progress at Resurrection Overland Park. Whether it is our personal lives, our faith lives, or our church life together – God is continually working on us. This weekend we mark an historic beginning that is only the start of what God is up to. I love being on this journey with you. See you this weekend!

In Christ,

Joshua
