Hope Local Kansas City launched in the fall of 2017 and has been a steady presence in the Johnson County area for six years. Led by a group of dedicated volunteers, Hope Local Kansas City is home to young adults, young families, families with school-aged children and more. We have great coffee every week and hot breakfast once per month in addition to Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month. Come grow in your faith with us!

Holy Days Sermon Series

The word “holy” literally means “to be set apart.” Throughout May, we are looking at some of the month’s holy days (or days that are set apart) and how they point to the love we receive from Jesus! Join us for Confirmation Sunday as we celebrate all confirmands, Mother’s Day for the celebration of motherhood and all mother-figures, Graduation Weekend for all graduates (preschool through grad school and the village of people who helped them get there), and Memorial Day as we honor all those who gave their lives for our freedoms. Come and see!

Looking for a Place to Grow?

Hope Local KC has a growing young adult population connected to our REVIVE Young Adult Ministry in West Des Moines, Iowa. Alpha is Hope’s major discipleship course offered in a small group format three times per year in the winter, spring and fall. In partnership with Hope West Des Moines, we offer PowerLife for junior high students in grades 6-8 as Hope’s confirmation ministry. Missions is also a focus for us through local outreach and service trips. Hope Local KC attendees have access to all of Hope’s many mission trips both locally and abroad.
