Hillcrest Ministries

Hillcrest Ministries provides rent-free and utility-free housing to qualified applicants in a fully furnished apartment, in addition to other services, including budget counseling and how to shop and prepare healthy meals. Timothy sponsors an apartment at the Lee’s Summit location and also encourages members to volunteer at the Hillcrest Thrift Store in Lee’s Summit. Our Hillcrest Team is made of a number of smaller groups of volunteers who choose an area to help with: cleaning our apartment when a resident moves out, maintaining furnishings, replacing missing or broken household items, shopping for kitchen essentials and providing a first-night welcome meal for our new resident. Another group plans a graduation party for our apartment residents. Team captains also head up Timothy’s support of the annual Hillcrest Gala, a fundraiser held at Arrowhead Stadium (when social distancing is not required).

We encourage all to volunteer at the Hillcrest Thrift Store located at 936 SE 3rd Street.

Prayer Ministry

Prayer Ministry is vital to the spiritual journey of discovering God’s plan for our lives and for our church. By joining together through emailed prayers, our Prayer Chain holds up requests, thanksgivings and praise to God submitted by our members for individuals and concerns both inside the church and in the community, nation and world. Please join our Prayer Chain by contacting the church office (816) 228-5300.
