“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood . . . Won’t you be my neighbor?” One day, an expert in the law asked Jesus, “What is the greatest commandment?” Jesus gave a rather simple answer, “Love God and love your neighbor as yourself?” That solicited a second question from the man, “Well then, who exactly is my neighbor?” And brilliantly, Jesus told a story about a Samaritan. What did he mean when He said to “love our neighbor?” Does this literally mean the guy who lives across from us who puts those political signs in his yard? Or the family a couple doors down, whose kids run amok all hours of the day. Or the old lady, whose dog barks incessantly?  We hope you will not only join us on Sunday mornings exploring this question that could change our neighborhoods, neighbors and especially, us. And then take the extra step of getting involved in a small group during this time.  Groups happen at various times/locations during the week. There is a new group welcome to anybody on Sunday mornings from 9-10am beginning October 20th in the Red Door, and another on Tuesdays beginning October 22nd from 7-8pm in fellowship hall. If you would like to be in a group or need more information,    please click here   , and we’ll get you started.

LPC Small Groups

In the fast-paced society in which we live, it's easy to see church as just another event on our calendars if we're not careful.  The early church modeled for us a different way of life, however, and we've drawn from their example and principles to create "Small Groups."

One thing that we place a lot of emphasis on at Leawood Pres. is community--engaging with each other and with our community to have a deeper and more lasting impact in the lives of others. We are working toward this goal of a more engaged community through “Small Groups.” 

Small Groups are built on four foundations:

  • Becoming a Celebrating, Joyful group.

  • Becoming a Learning Community, where you engage God's Truth, seek to understand, and put learning into practice.

  • Becoming a Loving Community, where you share Christ's love with one another.

  • Becoming a Serving Community, serving one another and the world around you.

Small groups are forming now. Click on the button or Contact connections pastor Scott McDonald for more details on how to get involved.
