Giving at Shawnee Community

Shawnee Community exists to invite our neighbors to share and experience God’s love. Your financial gifts help support our mission.

We proudly wear the label “weird church”. Our worship space has a warehouse garage door, there are outdoor lights on the ceiling, and a designer concrete floor. We spend less on those things because, to us, church is a people and not a place. The building we meet in is simply a center for ministry that enables us to invite our neighbors to experience and share God’s love.

In 2017, 67% of our church’s general ministry budget is spent on hands-on ministry to our neighbors in Shawnee, Kansas City, and around the world. To us, that’s money well spent.

There are three great ways you can help support our mission.

In Worship

Make giving a part of your worship experience by placing a check or cash in the offering plate.

One-Time Gift

Use our secure credit card processing service to give instantly using a bank or credit card.

Automated Giving

Manage or setup a recurring gift using a credit card, debit card or directly from your bank account at your preferred schedule.

2018 Giving

We have big plans for 2018 and are proposing a very challenging budget to reach our goals. This budget is an act of faith that families who have not participated in giving will take the plunge with us this year and that those who have will increase their giving to match our grand vision.

We need your financial support in 2018 to…

  • Develop and pay for a long-term facility plan that includes a step-by-step guide to growing in and beyond our current space in a way that is sustainable and healthy.
  • Improvements to our education spaces, lobby, and communications ministries to reach people beyond our congregation in the neighborhood.
  • Support increases in our support for local and global missions including our friends at Broken Arrow Elementary School, Micah Ministry, and Shawnee Community Services.
  • Increase hourly support for pastoral care and administration for our growing ministries.

Please prayerfully consider beginning or increasing your support so we can reach these and other goals.
