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.
There is no 5 pm evening worship at the Leawood location.
At Resurrection’s partner schools, 75-100% of students qualify for the free/reduced lunch program. These students depend on their school lunch and breakfast programs for the majority of their nutrition needs during the week but don’t have this option over the weekend. Our Backpacks for Hunger program provides nutritious food to help students get through the weekend and return to school on Monday ready to focus on their schoolwork.
Ready to participate? Groups and individuals can serve at the weekly fills. Fills typically take place on Wednesday afternoons, beginning at 4 pm and last up to 90 minutes. The work requires a lot of walking as we fill around 1,500 bags each week. Children aged nine and up are welcome with one adult for every three children. If your group would like to participate in an upcoming fill event contact Teri at Serve.Backpacks@cor.org for more information and to register. Individuals can learn more and register here.
Other ways to serve:
All activities take place at Resurrection Leawood Campus, Building A, Lower Level Mission Space.
