What is God doing in Raytown?


This week, we are welcoming the 5 members of the 2009 Vineyard Overland Park Summer Staff Team to work in Raytown. We are introducing the group to the experience of church planting by exposing them to a sample of business, government, church, school, and social agencies operating in the Raytown area.

We are also doing several service projects.

Throughout the week, we are asking the Team to investigate the answer to this question: “What is God doing in Raytown”. They will be presenting their findings at the worship service at 5 PM on Sunday evening.
