Partner Schools Ministry & Pre-K Initiatives

We show Christ’s love to the most vulnerable in Kansas City by providing hope through education and literacy initiatives.

Apache Elementary

Resurrection Overland Park is excited to introduce our partner school, Apache Elementary, which is located just a few blocks from the church in the Shawnee Mission School District.

Apache has a very diverse population with 600 students pre-k through 6th grade and 80 staff members. We look forward to providing them with school supplies, visits from the Bookmobile, mentoring and reading with students, staff appreciation and much more. If you are interested in being a part of this ministry of Resurrection OP please contact Suzy Ayres.

Pre-K Initiatives

Of the 6,800 four-year-olds in the KC metropolitan area, less than 1/3 have access to pre-school.

As part of Church of the Resurrection's 2030 Vision, we believe God is calling us to break the cycle of poverty for children in Kansas City, giving each child the possibility of attaining a future with hope.

We will do this through initiatives that:

1

Ensure every four-year-old who will attend our partner schools has access to pre-k education so that they are prepared to succeed in elementary school.

2

Ensure children in the communities surrounding our partner schools have access to basic health care through mobile medical clinics offering basic health care, vision, dental and hearing screening.

3

Address childhood hunger in the neighborhoods surrounding our partner schools by establishing new food pantries or supporting existing pantries.

4

Increase the number of partner schools from the present eight to ten, including one partnership in each campus’ surrounding community.
