We are involved in serving our community and sharing the love of God in many ways. Here is a list of our ongoing partnerships.
Coldwater is a food pantry and clothes closet located in Lee’s Summit that has year long programs to help provide food and basic needs to those in need in our community. Deerbrook is deeply involved with friends Saturday meals, the Clothes closet and with the Summer lunch program.
The "Garden of Eatin'" is one way we use our "backyard". It is planted, weeded, watered and harvested by volunteers. Fruit trees, which were planted in 2013, will provide fresh apples and pears in years to come. Produce from the garden is available for non-profits and others. More than 1,000 pounds of produce was produced in each of the last two years.
Habitat for Humanity
Deerbrook typically supplies a team of construction volunteers annually to this vital KC housing partnership ministry.
Langsford House is one of 42 schools in the Missouri Division Of Youth Services School District. It is a alternate school that serves 10-13 boys in grades 5-12. We serve the boys in various ways, including tutoring, providing holiday meals and parties, etc.
Meadow Lane Elementary
We are an official "Partner In Education" with Meadow Lane Elementary. This opens the door for a wonderful opportunity to help children in math and reading skills and provide encouragement to the staff and administration.
REED PERFORMING ARTS COMPANY
We partner with an incredible local dance & theater company that creates and performs 3 high quality children's musical productions each year.
WINGS 4 WATER
Our people have formed a non-profit organization around an annual BBQ wings contest in Lee’s Summit. This fine gathering on the first Thursday of the NFL season (9/5/19) brings in hundreds of people to raise money for clean water around the World.
WHEELS TO FREEDOM
Wheels to Freedom is another one of our ministry non-profits that is part of a global outreach program overseen by members of our congregation. Wheels to Freedom collects used wheelchairs that are rehabilitated and distributed to individuals in third-world countries by Hope Haven, Intl.
