Why Give Blood?

Community Blood Center must collect almost 600 units of blood daily to meet the needs of area hospital patients.  As there is no substitute for blood, Community Blood Center relies on volunteer donors like you to supply the life-saving blood and blood components to hospitals in Kansas and Missouri.

Sermon Series Continues Sunday

Things Jesus Didn’t Say • Sunday, September 16-October 21

We’ve all heard them. Everything happens for a reason. Love the sinner, Hate the sin. God helps those who help themselves. But did Jesus really say these things? Is this what we read in scripture? Join us for the six week sermon series, Things Jesus Didn’t Say. We will examine the sayings and “pearls of wisdom” we hear over and over again and discover the things Jesus didn’t say.

Think of someone you could invite and send a text, an email or a Facebook message today.
