Resurrection West,

What an awesome summer of community growth and service we've had! Now we begin a transition toward the school year with a special ‘back to school blessing’ this Sunday over all K-5th grade students, teachers, staff, and administrators. KiDSCOR Sunday School teachers will bring in our kids for this special moment of prayer and blessing, so get to worship early to check the kids in and get seated in the Sanctuary. Pastor Adam will be preaching a sermon about our call to be a church for the 21st Century, including a report back on the survey results we completed this past spring across every campus!

Thank you to the more than 200 of you who served last Saturday at Mega Mission with our partner schools, Ridgeview and Fairview. Take a look at the impact….

  • 244 bags of school supplies given, sorted, and distributed to classrooms
  • 4 courtyard benches and 4 bathrooms painted
  • Asphalt playground lines painted
  • 587 welcome back snacks and encouraging cards made for students of both schools
  • Landscaping and beatification of grounds
  • Many general projects that teachers requested completed in classrooms
  • Food pantry organized.
  • Fellowship lunch served at both locations

And then on Sunday evening we celebrated 17 baptisms at Shawnee Mission Lake, including adults, teens, and children, with some children who just transitioned from foster care into their forever family!

WOW! What a weekend! Thanks for being a church who is so outwardly focused, humble, and willing to do whatever it takes to bring hope and acceptance for so many. I am so thankful to serve as your campus pastor!

Finally, we are excited to share that our building feasibility team has completed its work and we are ready to begin a new West Campus Building Committee right away. They have been working on questions like:

  • What can we do about our traffic backups at peak service times?
  • How can we add more seats into the Sanctuary?
  • What about our need to have space to share meals, kid's sports, and build Christian community for every age and stage?

Mark your calendars now for an All Church Conference on August 21, 7-8 pm at Resurrection West. We need everyone there for what will surely be an historic night. Childcare will be available as our Senior Pastor, Adam Hamilton, presides over the conference. We will cast vision, hear from the feasibility study team, and install a building committee to begin its work right away. Register at cor.org/west/signup.

Interested in serving on the building committee? Pick up an application at the Connection Point this Sunday and mail in the form to 24000 West Valley Parkway, Olathe, KS 66061 or scan and email it to my assistant Debbie Dietz at debbie.dietz@cor.org by August 15.

Grateful to serve,


Jason Gant
