Check out all of our sites by going to our Sign up form. Signing up isn't required but doing so helps us create a better experience for you and our partner agencies.

Don't forget to invite friends, family, neighbors and colleagues. Our hope is that eventually you'll consider serving at one of our partner sites on a regular basis. I'm happy to help you make a deeper connections 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.

On October 12 volunteers from across campuses will join together to transform some of Kansas City's most vulnerable households. Follow this link to sign up as individuals, families, and small groups. This event helps us build relationships between those who worship together and with those living in substandard housing right around the corner. We are focusing on houses this year in the Wendell Phillips neighborhood and hope to build community with neighbors and friends. Since CIO is only for adults, there will be a special opportunity for families to help with neighborhood clean up that day too. Sign up for that here.

Volunteer of the month


This month I'd like to honor the work and gifts of Meradith Stretz. Meradith has been a joy to dream and strategize with as we continually strive for improvement with our Serve Saturday experience.  Her expertise and passion helps increase our social media presence and her ideas have helped to raise the quality of our overall experience for everyone. Thank you Meradith for your service and the sacrifices to be #withKC.

See you Saturday!

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Patrick
