Many thanks to my Shawnee Community family for their help in hosting the Kansas City Regional Disciple Women’s Meeting. The band provided a fantastic musical program and there were many people that helped by being greeters, serving dinner, providing desserts and attending the program. It was a great opportunity for other people in the Region to witness and experience the love shared by our church family. We served 62 people from 13 different congregations. It’s a blessing to be part of the Shawnee Community Christian Church Family!!

Many thanks,

Sandy Allen
