Impacts Countless of People's Lives Every Year

Your Generosity Makes That Possible

This page will give you a glimpse of all the ways Resurrection uses your gifts to change the world. 

Easter Grant

KCPS Empowerment

portion of this year’s Easter Offering at Resurrection will fund 13 housing units at reStart for families served by the KCPS Empowerment Program. KCPS Empowerment is designed to reduce homelessness among Kansas City Public Schools students and their families. Safe housing is a key factor in helping students achieve success in school and life. KCPS Empowerment uses collective impact, a model that removes barriers in order to accomplish goals, reduces duplication of efforts in the community, and collects data to measure success. In addition to providing safe housing, reStart provides wrap-around care to families as they transition out of homelessness to permanent housing. Since 2022, 137 families have been referred to KCPS Empowerment and 35 families have found permanent housing solutions. Visit https://www.avenueoflife.org/empowerment and https://www.restartinc.org to learn more.

Please note: The Easter Grant comes out of the 2024 Ministry Fund, so your gifts will be applied to 24 Ministry Fund – Operating on the Online Giving Page.

The 3 Step Giving Process

Where is God guiding you to get involved?

Giving financial resources to God’s work in the world is an act of faith. Step 1 is to go to God in prayer and ask for guidance.

What can you commit to God's kingdom work?

Commitment is an act of discipleship. Step 2 is a step forward to joining God in His work in the world.

When & how can you fulfill your commitment?

Giving is the follow-through on your commitment. Step 3 is defining your plan to fulfill your commitment.

Why We Give

Showing our love for God and our neighbors
An Act of Worship

All we have is a gift from God, so we believe that giving to God's work is an act of worship.

Membership Expectation

At Resurrection, giving is an expectation of membership. The church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able.

Funds Mission & Outreach

Annual giving makes possible: worship, programs for children and students, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips, community service, and supports building and operational needs.

A Story of Uncommon Generosity

As a gifted young artist living with vision impairment and a brain tumor, Jeff Hanson gave away millions of dollars through his paintings fueled by his passion to give back to his community.

Jeff found authentic joy and a deep connection with God through living generously. Those who live generously find a deeper sense of community, a lasting hope, and increasing love for others while leaving a lasting impact on the world.

We invite you to learn Jeff’s inspiring story in the video and find out more about how your giving supports our ministries here.

Stewardship FAQ

As Christians we recognize everything we have comes from God, and we are simply sharing those gifts for Kingdom work. Through our tithes and offerings, we demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbors. Pray about giving regularly to God’s ministry and mission through Resurrection with a goal of tithing 10% of your annual income. (For more information about tithing, read this GPS Guide post.)

A ministry fund commitment, also known as a pledge, is an individual or family’s annual commitment to the church of their tithes and offerings in support of our church’s ministry and mission.

Ministry and mission through Resurrection are made possible by gifts to the Ministry Fund. This is the vital fund that supports all the programs and ministries and the church. This includes funding worship, programs for children and students, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips, community service, building and operational needs, and staffing.

You can complete a Ministry Fund commitment at any time. Resurrection engages in an annual Stewardship campaign during worship typically each November. As a congregation, we will express our gratitude to God and present our cards, representing our commitment to God’s ministry through our church.
