Thanks for worshipping with us this weekend! Be sure to check in on this page and let us know you’re here.
There is lots going on in our community! August 15 was our last Sunday at the Ball Conference Center, and we are now in the middle of three weeks of preparation and prayer for the season ahead. We’ve been making adjustments to our online worship as we go – have you noticed?
In this season of preparation, join Pastor Kyle in prayer and devotion on Facebook Live each Thursday at 10am. It’s only 4 minutes – stop by!
If you’re in the KC area, mark your calendars and plan to join us on September 12 as we have our Fall Kickoff. It’ll be our first day in our new home for in-person worship, at our Ridgeview Campus, plus we’ll have a big party afterwards – complete with food trucks, yard games, children’s activities, and a blessing of the backpacks. Info, tickets, and RSVP here.
That day we’ll have a new Sunday morning schedule, too. In-person worship will be at 10:15, and we’ll have a full hour of small groups and Christian education for our children, youth, and options for adults at 9:00am.
Now is a great time to get signed up for a small group! You can find Life Group opportunities for the fall here
The Center of Grace building update video will be posted on the Center’s Facebook page on Monday!

From the sermon:
Scripture Text: Joshual 3
I highly recommend a visit to the Chiefs training camp if you ever get the chance!
Dreaming and visioning oftentimes is overlooked. Or, is fraught with worst case scenarios. And yet, all through the scriptures, God gives visions to people of things to come. Many times those things are great blessings.
In this week, I would invite you to imagine yourself involved with a faith community like you’ve never been before. What might that be like? What impact might that have on your life? You don’t have to make any commitments, and you don’t need to make any plans. Just dream and vision and wonder at what God might do!
Don’t forget to join me on Facebook Live Thursday morning at 10am for a devo and prayer! We’ll continue to look at Jesus’ pattern of prayer and what comes after those times.
In this season of prayer, the Wesley Covenant Prayer is a great template to use daily. I encourage you to check it out!
