Our Story

Come dream with us as we continue our journey of knowing, loving and serving God in the greater Kansas City community and the world.

Welcome to the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection Overland Park!

Welcome to the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. We hope you’ll take a minute to explore all the ministries and opportunities we offer and plan to visit one of our campuses in Leawood, Olathe, Downtown Kansas City, Blue Springs or Overland Park this weekend or join us for worship online.

No matter who you are or where you come from Resurrection Overland Park welcomes you. If you are looking for a place that will love, encourage and support your family as together we make a difference in the world, join us!

Resurrection Overland Park is located on the site of the former Valley View United Methodist Church. After 60 years of serving in the Overland Park community, the Valley View congregation took a bold step forward to close and become Resurrection Overland Park to ensure they continue to share Christ with new generations and serve the community.

The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection

In 1990 Resurrection was a small, upstart church with a big dream of becoming a church that welcomes thinking people who were not actively involved in a church. We have been on an amazing journey with thousands of people finding greater hope, purpose and meaning in their lives here. And, they’ve found that a church like this can quickly become a great place for personal connections and relationships that will last a lifetime.

The life of our church is guided by three statements:

  • Our Purpose is to build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.
  • Our Vision is to be used by God to change lives, strengthen churches, and transform the world.
  • Our Journey is to know, love and serve God.

Vision 2030: Closing the Gap

When Jesus spoke of the Kingdom of God, he was speaking of the world as it should be. The driving passion of Church of the Resurrection's Vision 2030 is to close the gap between what is and what should be in our lives, our community and our world between now and the year 2030.
