Through our Local Impact Ministries, we partner with organizations and groups to make a difference throughout the Kansas City area. We collect food, clothing, furniture and technology to distribute to those in need; provide tutoring and meal assistance at local schools; participate in construction projects to renovate and renew homes; and serve in many other ways right here in our own neighborhoods.
JOY in Serving...Grace in Giving
You can help brighten someone's Thanksgiving and Christmas this year by Joyfully Offering Yourself in serving! JOY brings opportunities each and every week to make a difference this holiday season. Between now and Christmas, you can sign up to serve alongside our partner schools, local community agencies and our global partnerships. When you do, you are a tangible reminder to those in need of the love and light of Christ!
Some of our opportunities are only available in the Narthex at our JOY tables during worship each weekend, others have online sign ups. Let's spread the Joy!
Details about 2019 JOY in Serving Donation and Volunteer events can be found by visiting cor.org/leawood/joy.

Serve Saturdays offer a variety of pre-planned serving opportunities which require only your time and a desire to make an impact in our church, our community and our world. Individuals, families and groups are welcome to participate in any of our events. Help us serve God by serving others!
Younger children are welcome at the discretion of parents. Some projects may include small pieces and/or require fine motor skills such as cutting.

Do I have to be a member of Resurrection?
Of course not! We love first-timers and visitors - no experience or church membership necessary. We often host scout troops, extended families, and high school students seeking service hours. Everyone is welcome!
Can children participate?
Serve Saturday is family-friendly and there are serving opportunities available for all ages. You can find the age limit for each opportunity on the registration page. Please note there is NO child care at Serve Saturday; accompanying adults are responsible for the participation and safety of their children of any age.
Can I sign up my entire small group (more than 4 people) at once?
Please use the Learn More or Register Now - Group button. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like assistance registering a group larger than four people.
What will I be doing?
Each opportunity is slightly different, from serving a simple meal to sorting donations to prepping supplies. You can find a full description of each one on the registration page.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable, casual and modest clothing.
What do I need to bring?
Nothing! Everything you need will be provided.
Where does Serve Saturday meet?
Before we begin, we'll gather in The Commons (main lobby of building B) on our Leawood campus, unless otherwise noted.
Where will I serve?
Each opportunity is different - you can choose one that takes place on the church campus or one that is beyond the church walls in the Greater Kansas City community. If you leave campus you can either drive on your own, carpool with other volunteers, or simply follow others in a caravan of cars.
When do I need to register? Can I walk-in instead?

Most serving opportunities do not provide a meal unless indicated.
Why should I try Serve Saturday?
Our events are designed as easy, low-commitment ways to make a positive impact on your neighbors in the metro area. Try something new, or enjoy a familiar favorite. Either way, you'll experience the powerful impact of helping others by becoming God's hands and feet right here in Kansas City.
