Around Weston, many people simply know us as the “Apple Dumpling Church.”
We’ve been known to feed a few (thousand) bellies in early October, true. But Weston Christian Church is up to so much more!
We have been feeding body and soul since 1852, when twenty-three members of Weston Christian Church met for the first time to organize a congregation in Weston.
Each month, locals gather in our basement to cook up 60-80 jars of soup for the In His Service Soup Ministry. These meals go out to homebound neighbors, folks who have had a new baby come into the family, and folks who are experiencing death and illness.
But we also feed the soul. Walk into our sanctuary Sunday morning and your soul will be fed first by music. It may be the choir singing pieces from Handel’s Messiah. It may be our violinist (and his family of violists) playing old time hymns. It may be a day when the worship band plays original pieces of music from one of our members. At Weston Christian Church, we know that music is like praying, multiplied times two!
Our sermons will feed you too. They may make you laugh. They may make you cry. But they are guaranteed to make you think about what God is calling people to do and be in the world today.
And if you have little ones, they will be fed and cared for by our church family! After the children’s moment, they are invited to children’s church activities down in the fellowship hall and upstairs in “The Loft.”
Outside of Sunday morning, we gather to be fed by fellowship and the reading of the Word. Our more mature members gather for Christ and a Cup of Coffee two Wednesday afternoons a month. Our 30-40 somethings gather for Living Room Fellowship, mission projects, and outings around Kansas City one Saturday a month.
But central to the feeding of body and soul is our Communion Table. We share communion every week. And ALL are welcome to Jesus’ feast (even those with gluten allergies).
If you are hungry for change, hungry for friendship, hungry for hope, hungry for healing, won’t you come and join us?
