Featured Class: Revisiting the Beloved Community

Wednesdays, June 9–30, 6:30 pm on cor.org/live

Last summer, we explored what it meant to live into the “Beloved Community” that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned – a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and love of one’s fellow human beings. This June we continue those conversations, diving deeper into issues of race, scripture and what it means to gain empathy and embrace our Christian responsibilities within the Beloved Community.

Summer Food Drive

When school is out in the Kansas City area, many children lose access to nutritional foods they need every day. There is a really easy way you can help these children get food over the summer – next time you're grocery shopping, purchasing some extra from our "Summer Staples" food list and drop them off at any Church of the Resurrection location on Saturday, June 19 from 9-11 am.
