Join our Leawood and Overland Park campuses on Monday, January 20, 2019 at 8:45am for our MLK Day of Serving. We’ll gather briefly at our Leawood campus in Building B to pray and distribute maps, then everyone will head out outside of our walls into Johnson County and Kansas City. Families, individuals and groups of all ages will work together for the morning at several locations with organizations who serve our neighbors and make an impact!
