Mixing Prayers into the Foundation of the Church

Greetings RezDowntowners,

What an amazing Friday it is! Wendy and I just walked by the construction site and were amazed by our continuing progress. It looks like they are graveling the whole site in advance of the concrete slab. It was pretty awesome to watch. Be sure to check out the live webcam at if you are interested in seeing it for yourself.

In the next several weeks we'll see the building start to take shape with structural steel, a roof, and several other noticeable features. However, all of it has been preceded by your prayers, hopes and dreams. Thank you!

It was so special to be able to witness the cumulative prayers get mixed into what will the be the foundation of our new sanctuary. I love this image of preparing the way for future generations with intentional prayer and then to think about all of the people who will one day walk through the doors of our sanctuary to meet God in worship is so humbling.

By your prayers, through your generosity, and because of your willingness to say "Yes" to God's call, we have the privilege and honor of being a part of something that hasn't happened for really long time here in Kansas City. Sometimes I feel like we're standing on the precipice of one of God's miracles. If you weren't able to watch our brief prayer service on Tuesday, you can watch a condensed version of what happened in the video below.

We have a big weekend ahead at Resurrection Downtown. Not only do we have the kickoff to our Women's Breakfast Series on Saturday morning, but we are continuing our series on Simon Peter and we'll also be inviting people to make a difference through mission and service this weekend. I hope you'll invite friends, share our construction update and join us in worship as we continue building Christian community in the heart of the city.

Happy Friday, God's Peace... and Go Chiefs!
