Be The Church Sunday – Service Day – October 21-28 2018

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.
