Calling All Singers!

Are you a member, former member or potential member of a church, school or civic choir?

Would you like to see our congregation have a strong and growing choir leading congregational singing with joy and vitality, and making beautiful offerings of prayer and praise in worship?

Dr. William Baker will be in residence here at our church during April. Our goal is to build the foundation of a music program that will change lives and destinies. We need you to sing and we need your help to find every prospective choir singer in your family, circle of friends, neighbors, and colleagues. No long term commitment, just a desire to make beautiful music for Sundays in April, including Holy Week and Easter. 

Details will be coming soon. To learn more, please share your name, phone number and email address with the church office to be notified of our plans for an April of singing you will long remember!

Welcome to!

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest. What makes our church so special? Listen to one member's testimony:

After a tornado struck on Monday, March 6, the town of Plattsburg and surrounding areas have 15 to 25 homes damaged and other structures severely damaged. The community needs volunteers to help remove debris -- especially along Highways J, C and W. Rev. Crystal Karr says local responders are asking for people to bring their trucks, crow bars, work gloves, work boots, shovels and chain saws to help remove debris. Workers can show up during the day and state they are there to help. If you need an address to help navigate to the affected area, use 25 SE 222nd Street, Plattsburg, MO and the resident will help direct you to the damaged areas.
