Sunday Mornings Live (SML)

Overland Park Campus, Grades 6-12

We meet every Sunday morning at 10:30 AM inside the LightHouse, located behind  the main church building. Come inside, play some ping pong or pool, and grab a seat with a friend. All grades gather together for announcements, a game, mission moments and worship. Then, we break into age specific small groups for teaching. Join us!

 

South Kansas City Campus, Grades 6-8

We meet every Sunday from 9:15 – 10:15 AM in the Middle School Room at the South KC Student Center called “The Hilltop” (the buildings by the basketball court).  Also, count on a relaxed atmosphere, donuts, The Question of the Day, lots of interactive discussion, and a time of applicable teaching geared directly toward 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.

South Kansas City Campus, Grades 9-12

This is our corporate worship gathering on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 AM in the high school room at the SKC Student Center called “The Hilltop” (the buildings surrounding the basketball court). At SML, our students engage in a thought-provoking discussion facilitated by ministry leaders over the course of various weekly series. These series cover books of the Bible, character studies, addressing hard questions and doubts, and more! Before diving into discussion, students can grab a donut and play pool, ping-pong, Pop-A-Shot, or foosball!

Wednesday Nights

Overland Park Campus, Grades 6-8

Overland Park Campus Fusion, 6:00 – 7:30 PM, meet in the LightHouse for Fusion. This is casual social time and an opportunity to invite a friend, grab a slice of pizza from the cafe, hang out and talk about whatever anyone wants to share. Then, we may play a large group game, read through some scripture and split into grade and gender specific small groups for discussion.

Overland Park Campus, Grades 9-12

Overland Park Campus House Church, 7:30 – 9:00 PM. Join us inside the Lighthouse for the best night of your week! Students will team up and play on the basketball and volleyball courts, try some gaga ball, and hanging out with friends. Each week we go through a book of the Bible verse by verse and head into small groups to discuss the passage and to do life together.

 

South KC Campus, Grades 6-8

South KC Campus Life Groups, 6:30 – 8:00 PM, in the Middle School Room at the South KC Student Center. Each week at Life Groups students gather in age and gender specific groups with incredible volunteer leaders whose desire is to lead, equip, and nurture spiritual growth for every student they encounter. Life Groups are designed to be comfortable, but bold enough to proclaim the TRUTH of Scripture. The first half of group is spent playing games (like basketball, 4-square, ping pong, pool, charades, or larger combined activities). Then students grab a snack and break off into small groups for discussion.

South KC Campus, Grades 9-12

South KC Campus Life Groups, 6:30 – 8:00 PM at the South KC Student Center. Gender specific small groups for 9th-12th graders that meet at this time. Life Groups provide an opportunity for students to go deeper in discussion, connect with a diverse group of peers, study scripture together, have accountability, learn about practical ways to apply scripture in daily life, and ultimately encounter Jesus. When students arrive, they can jump into a game of basketball, dominate in 4-square, kicking back on a coach to socialize inside, or pick up a ping pong paddle! Snacks are provided and the second half of the night is dedicated to small group study and discussion.

Mission Southside

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 Lighthouse to carpool to these apartments. There we will prayer walk, meet the residents, and provide fun activities for kids and parents.

Overland Park Campus, Grades 6-8

Once a quarter we hold a local serving opportunity for our 6-8th grade students at Overland Park. We partner with Colonial garden and do several projects, as well as walk across the street and serve the residents at Colonial Village on Wednesday nights during Fusion!
