Caring for our building is a sacred trust!

Our building is a rich resource and we trust that God will continue to open the door to ways we can use our building to the glory of God and in partnership with our community. Thanks to Chuck Drews (Trustee) and Bob Barnes (Property Chair) for their hard work and leadership in making this happen! OUR NEW FRONT STEPS ARE COMPLETE! JOB WELL DONE!

 

 

AUGUST EVENTS

 

“Giving More Than You Take”

This 15 foot, stainless steel sculpture created by Dave Regier, is a representation of early Olathe.                                                                                                                                    It has been placed in the plaza outside the new Johnson County Courthouse.

 We are grateful that Dave is part of our Family of faith! Dave also represents “Giving more than you take.”                                                                                                               He continuously is found giving more than he takes  here at the church, or wherever he goes.

 WAY TO GO DAVE! We could all learn a little from this sculpture and from Dave.

 

 

 

JULY EVENTS

 

Olathe Firefighters Back to School Drive

Olathe Professional Firefighters Outreach recently made a large donation of produce to our Food Pantry! Now they are providing a way all of us can show support for the kids of our community. I invite you to support this effort.

Celebration – July 9, 2020
Pastor Sherry’s 2nd Anniversary with the First Christian Church

On July 9th I will celebrate my 2nd anniversary as pastor of FCC Olathe. These past two years have been a joy and privilege. The past 3 months have presented us with challenges that we could have never imagined, but in true FCC Olathe spirit, many people have stepped up to do what needed to be done so that  ministry and worship could continue. In celebration of my anniversary Sunday, I began a tradition last year by using my anniversary Sunday to “repreach” the first sermon I preached from the FCC Olathe pulpit. As you join us for worship – either in person or online – here are the Scripture texts that will guide our worship in July.

July 12 – Philippians 1:1-3: Setting Grace Loose in the World

July 19 – Philippians 1:4-11: Seeking God

July 26 – Philippians 2:1-11: Following Jesus

 

 

JUNE EVENTS

Once again our community has reached out to partner in our Food Ministry. St Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church brought 3 carloads of food for our pantry. We are grateful for our long time friendship and partnership in ministry with St Thomas.
