As the weather is turning to fall we having been looking at ways to allow our small groups to gather indoors.  In addition to the numerous zoom meetings and groups, beginning October 11th, we will begin to allow groups of  12 or less gather in the building.  This will be done in advance by reservation only through Melissa in the church office.  The Building will only be available on certain days and only certain classrooms will be used.  Each group will be asked to sign a covenant agreement that they will follow the establish rules and protocols that are in place for their safety and protection.  Please contact Melissa at or call the church at 913.897.6446 and leave a message.



Pet Memorial Garden 

Thanks to the trustees and Children’s Ministries we have created a pet memorial garden on the west side of Heritage House. It is open to our entire church family as a place to remember any lost pets.


You are invited to paint a 6 x 6 paver to place in the garden. Pavers can be purchased at any home improvement store or Susie Bond can deliver one to your home with all of the instructions. You will need to seal your paver with an acrylic coating or a polyurethane to protect it from the elements. Susie Bond can also assist with this.


Once your paver is completed you can place it in the pet memorial garden. There is a bench for you to sit on and a cross, so that you can spend time with God remembering your very special pet.

For more information contact Susie Bond at
