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!
There are many ways for individuals, families and small groups to make a positive impact in the community. 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 2018 JOY in Serving Donation and Volunteer events can be found by visiting cor.org/leawood/joy.

Flourish furnishes hope to those in need by collecting, preparing and distributing donated furnishings and home essentials, transforming the lives of program participants, donors and servants into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to offer a 'hand up' by meeting the household furnishings needs in Kansas City's urban and suburban communities through donated resources.
Resurrection's Furnishings Ministry seeks to ensure that no child or adult has to live in a home without adequate furniture, and to lead the effort in recycling usable household furnishings.
Please visit the furnishings ministry page for details about all of the available volunteer opportunities.
