Thank you for taking a few minutes to see what is going on in the serve life of RezDT! The service opportunities below, along with RezDT community life, care and worship are how we equip you for the transformation of lives and the world. With your participation, we are #withKC! Opportunities to jump in abound and can be found at our RezDT website.  Contact me anytime for questions, further connection, and care: 816-979-1344 or  



Program starts at 9a, come early for refreshments
1522 McGee, KCMO 64108

Check out all of our sites by going to our Sing up form. Please sign up ahead of time if you can to ensure we have coverage at all of our partner sites! You're also welcome to show up Saturday morning with friends to be sent where needed.

Don't forget to invite a friend and consider serving at one of our partner sites on a more regular basis.  I'm happy to help you make a deeper connection to the agency and those dedicated to serving there.

We don't visit every site every month. Click here for a list with web-links to all of the serve partners that we can help you connect with throughout the year.

Serve Saturday Goals

  1. Welcome 200 first time participants who begin serving with us regularly.
  2. Small groups begin to serve together regularly at one of our partner sites on Serve Saturdays or on days convenient for their group.
  3. Cultivate 6 stories of service that compel others to serve and that can be shared with the broader community.

Your feedback after serve events will help us track these goals. A link is sent out each month to those who have registered to serve.  You're welcome to follow it here too.


Can you believe it is already time to prepare for school!  First Chance to see the list here and at Serve Saturday and all the weekend worship services. Over the next few weekends you'll have the opportunity to get a back to school guide and a bag to fill if you need one. In the weeks that follow there will be opportunities to sign up to volunteer in many capacities!

Mountain TOP 2019

We travelled again to rural Appalachia with 10 youth and 5 adults to serve and grow in Christian community.  The 2019 camp theme was Courage with the founding scripture from Deuteronomy 31:6 --Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” We experienced many moments of courage along the journey.  We completed projects that seemed impossible, shared about how we experienced God with each other and have taken the trip back home to the valley below to help everyone experience the Mountain of the Lord in our everyday lives.


Are you serving on your own or through your employer!?!?!

TEXT "DEEP" to 816-256-5588 to let us track and celebrate it with you!

Are you passionate about a service opportunity you've been doing outside of REZDT and but aren't quite sure how to bring more people alongside you? Reach out to me as I'd love to help!

Volunteer(s) of the month

This month I'd like to honor the work and gifts of Amy Kanning and her family. Amy has stepped up this summer to help organize our back to school efforts.  She was also instrumental in helping our small groups engage in mission before they broke for the summer.  Her vision and leadership have helped to make REZDT more alive with Christ for all people.  Thank you Amy for your service and the sacrifices you and your family make to be #withKC and #REZDT.


Hope to see you Saturday!

I also hope you've enjoyed getting to know what's going on in the Serve life of RezDT!  Don't hesitate to reach out anytime you have questions, concerns, or just need a listening ear. Email or call 816-979-1344.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Patrick
