Due to inclement weather, all daytime in-person programs have been canceled for Thursday, Feb. 9 at each of our locations and the cafe and bookstore at the Leawood location are closed until 5 pm. Evening programs will be held, as scheduled.
We are watching the weather and at this time the Car Show is still on as scheduled for the public, open from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. We will keep you updated as conditions change.
Throughout scripture God calls one generation to pass on the faith to the next. Moses commanded the Israelites to teach their children of God’s deliverance and love. The Psalmist insists that the Israelites record their faith for a people yet unborn. Jesus was intentional about ministering to children. And, part of Paul’s focus was mentoring young leaders.
In this campaign, we’re seeking to ensure our buildings and programs faithfully connect with and care for all people of the church and community, from the oldest to the youngest. Thus, ensuring our ability to pass on the faith from generation to generation.
Throughout this website you’ll see the faces and read the stories of some of our members across the generations. You’ll see the proposed changes to our facilities aimed at helping us meet the needs of people across the generations. And, you’ll read a bit about how reducing or eliminating our debt will strengthen and expand our ministries to prepare our church for a vibrant future.
Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet unborn may praise the Lord.
We want to ensure that the church continues to do a great job caring for our parents’ and grandparents’ generations, and we desperately want to know that we’re doing all we can to connect with our daughters and granddaughter and their generations. We hope you will prayerfully consider being part of this important effort, and join us to ensure a vibrant future for the church.
Your commitment to the 2024 Annual Ministry Fund makes possible all the mission and ministry at Resurrection. Your generosity and commitment to join us in closing the gap between where the world is and where it could be is the lifeblood of the church.
This capital campaign commitment, over and above your regular offering, will make possible creating and improving facilities to help us in passing on the faith from generation to generation.
Pray for this campaign, specifically that God will give our leaders wisdom and touch the hearts of our congregation.
Pray for personal discernment as you consider how God is calling you to invest in a church for generations today and tomorrow.
Pray this simple prayer daily:
God, you have called us to tell coming generations of your glorious deeds. Grant us vision to know the plans you have for your church, and give us the conviction, courage and boldness to pursue them. Amen.
The success of the campaign will require a commitment from us all to complete the building designs and achieve our goals. A sacrificial gift is an opportunity to take a bold step in your spiritual journey, make a sacrificial gift to invest in God’s work, and experience the joy of knowing that you will be sharing Jesus with current and future generations.
Parents, this is an opportunity to discuss giving with your children. Our children’s ministry team has designed activities and a Talk & Tunes resource with these conversations in mind. Share with your children how you make giving decisions. Talk about the difference you want to make, and work as a family to find other ways to make an impact.

If you have an IRA, consider contributing through a Qualified Charitable Distribution. A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from an IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity like Resurrection. These gifts expand the impact of your giving, because instead of paying taxes on the money, every dollar goes directly to mission and ministry. Seek advice from a financial advisor to determine the best way to maximize this opportunity. For more information visit cor.org/waystogive or click the button below.
Setting up a recurring gift at Resurrection is a convenient and secure way to manage your giving. Use this link for easy-to-use steps. As you set up your gifts, be sure to read carefully as you enter your giving amount and frequency.
Our sacrificial gifts to the church, above and beyond our annual ministry fund gift or tithe, over the next three years towards the Generation to Generation capital campaign will provide resources that will impact thousands and thousands of lives for generations to come. Making a sacrificial gift is something that requires prayerful discernment, and it will take each of us to make the goals of this campaign a reality. As you embark on this spiritual journey, this devotional is designed to help you prayerfully seek God’s calling as you consider what He is asking you to sacrifice to be a part of ensuring spaces for all generations at Resurrection, today and into the future.
We hope you will join us in praying about making a sacrificial gift to ensure our congregation has a vital future caring for all generations.
