Local Serve Nights
The South KC High School ministry invests in congregational care and neighborhood outreach. These ministries provide the means for our students to partner with God’s redemptive work in the city.
High school students serve on Tuesdays in three ways:
• By being a homework buddy for the kids.
• By bringing snacks for the kids.
• By being an ESL (English as a Second Language) Tutor for the Moms.
We have been connected to Mission Southside the past several summers and during “Turkey Bowls” at Thanksgiving. They have invited us to adopt one of their apartment complexes in West Olathe. We are partnering with other churches as a student ministry to Be The Church in our community! During the summer, we gather every Friday at the Q Youth House to carpool to these apartments. There we will prayer walk, meet the residents, and provide fun activities for kids and parents.
1st Friday of the month.
This ministry primarily serves youth and families from the federal housing developments just east of downtown Kansas City. One Friday a month we go to the inner-city to hang out with children at Guinotte Manor. We encourage families and students to come be a part of the ministry, and there are always plenty of adults to supervise. While we are there we play games, paint faces, lead worship, and then serve a dinner prepared by our families. Afterward we head to McDonald’s for a recap and hear testimonies from our kids about how they were impacted.
This is a great opportunity for us to serve together as a middle school ministry.
