Shawnee Presbyterian Church




October 21, 2018 - 200 Lunches for Crosslines

In 2017, seven Presbyterian Churches from across the metropolitan Kansas City area came together to collaborate on the annual Be the Church Service Day on October 22. Beginning at noon, more than 600 volunteers scattered throughout the community to provide meal service, beautify neighborhoods, renovate nonprofits, write letters, pack hygiene kits, prepare for international trips and participate in a neighborhood fiesta.

  • 450 hygiene kits assembled
  • 400 packages of Adult Vitamins  and 600 packages of Children's Vitamins packed for the Dominican Republic Medical Partnership (DRM))
  • 100 Child Health Kits created (healthy practices booklet, powdered milk packet, peanut butter packet, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste)
  • 200 bundles of crayons sorted for DR child health education activities
  • 42 swaddling blankets made for Kenyan babies and 18 for Jewish Vocational Services Refugee Services
  • 300 sack lunches for City Union Mission
  • Hundreds of meals served
  • 6 yards cleaned up
  • More than 25 organizations supported
  • Thousands of lives touched

The “Be the Church” campaign started several years ago with the philosophy that an important part of a church community’s worship experience is getting up and getting out to put faith in action and serve. In 2017, more than 25 organizations received volunteers, including local social service agencies, schools, homeless shelters, transitional housing and even their own church buildings, all with the heart of supporting and encouraging our friends in the community. 

The website will soon be updated with what churches will be participating and what projects each is coordinating. Shawnee Presbyterian Church will be listed as we gather to make 200 lunches for Crosslines after our worship service. Everyone is invited to check out the growing list of churches and projects to consider helping out with other projects throughout the week as well.

In Ministry Together,
Pastor Craig
