Little Lambs Opening for 8:30 Service
The Little Lambs Ministry is pleased to announce that we will be open for the 8:30am worship service starting Sunday, June 4th. Little Lambs provides care for children ages 0-3 by providing a safe and nurturing environment for the littlest disciples to hear God’s Word, worship, and play. LLM will continue to be open during Sunday School and 11:00 service as well. If you have a little one age 0-3, we’d love to have them join us starting June 4! Little Lambs is made possible with volunteer support. Please contact Nicole at email@example.com if you are interested in learning about volunteer opportunities, or if you have questions about Little Lambs.
Church Picnic & Carnival Breakaway Celebration |
Join us after church on Sunday June 11th for a Church Picnic and Carnival! This event will follow our weeklong outreach event: Breakaway Field Days! We are excited to invite our community, neighbors, and all those who attended Breakaway to join us on this Sunday Morning for Worship and to stay for our church picnic and carnival! Our Picnic and Carnival will start at approximately 12:30pm. We will be catering fried chicken and are asking everyone to bring a side dish! In the South Parking Lot we will have a giant water inflatable, a dunk tank, a shaved ice truck, and lots of games for kids and adults to play! Mark your calendars and join us for a bunch of fun as we have an opportunity to love our community well and invite them to know the love of Jesus!
Scripture Reading Dinner
Please gather with us as we read from the Lord’s word and share a meal together! We are gathering on the second Sunday of each month; this month will be Sunday, June 11th @ 5pm in the Fellowship Hall. Each month we choose a book of the Bible to read all of the way through together, taking turns reading a chapter at a time. We hope to honor the way that Jesus would teach the disciples while they broke bread together. There is also precedent for God’s Word being read in its entirety, to take in the full meaning and value of the text. RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up between services in the upstairs lobby.
Join us for the Abide June Event:
Backyard BBQ (Families & Kids Welcome) – June 14th 6:00-8:00pm
The Morefield’s are hosting a backyard BBQ! We will be cooking hamburgers, brats, and hot dogs! We will have a bounce house for little kids. Yard games, footballs, and frisbees for older kids and adults! We’ll have a fire pit going. Come, relax, hang out, and enjoy being together!
Our Address is: 8141 NE 98th Street, Kansas City, MO 64157
A New Amos House Ministry
You may not know this, but the church owns what is known as the “Amos House.” This is the house that is directly behind our main parking lot. In the past we have used the Amos House for a variety of different things. However, we are excited to announce a new ministry that is called “Road to Home At Amos House”.
This Road to Home at Amos House program is a collaborative effort between Gashland Evangelical Presbyterian Church and A Turning Point (ATP) to move individuals and family from an emergency crisis houseless situation to a more stable, short-term, safe living situation.
A Turning Point is a non-profit organization that seeks to support families through providing basic needs and education to equip them to live in self-sufficiency. A Turning Point will provide the hands on expertise in working with these individuals and families living in the Amos House. On our end we will have the opportunity to love these individuals or families, invite them to church, and show them the loving hospitality of Christ.
In order to get the Amos House ready for this new ministry, we are in need of some items for the Amos House Kitchen. If you are interested in helping us get this ministry off the ground, please check out the target registry that we created: https://www.target.com/gift-registry/gift/amoshousegepc
