OUTREACH/LOCAL

As a congregation, 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 

Coldwater provides food and clothing to people in need within the Lee's Summit community.  We serve monthly by helping distribute food and clothes and preparing a noon meal on the fourth Saturday of each month hosted by Cornerstone Baptist Church.  We also help organize and prepare daily meals for needy children in three neighborhoods during the summer months.

 

Community Garden

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.

LANGSFORD HOUSE

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.
