      ​Thank you for your generosity!

  • Worship While Travelling    You can still join worship while you travel throughout the summer!  Join our livestream any Sunday at www.hosannatogether.org.  If you’d prefer to worship on your own, follow the directions at https://www.hosannatogether.org/create-worship or find a congregation near your destination at https://elca.org/findacongregation

  • Hosanna! Land Opportunity   A local gymnastics business in Liberty approached us about purchasing around 3 acres of our undeveloped land.  The possible terms may greatly benefit our ministry in the short and long terms by significantly reducing or eliminating our debt.  Conversation with the congregation after worship on June 30 was positive, so we are continuing on with the prospective buyer.  We will do research, seek professional consultation, consider the impacts, and discern our future needs.  If you would like to be part of a team working on these tasks, please speak with Pastor Mike or a council member.  If eventual terms are determined to be beneficial, the congregation will have an opportunity to vote before any final decisions are made.  We will keep the congregation updated on the progress of conversations in the meantime.  We’ve put together a handout about what is being proposed and some potential benefits and disadvantages.  You can pick up this handout in the fellowship hall or view this downloadable PDF

  • Congregation Conversations -  Pastor Mike is hosting small-group conversations this summer to talk about what we’re passionate about as individuals and as a congregation.  We hope that every member and friend of Hosanna! will sign up to join one of these meals.  The goal is to spend time together, share our passions, empower one another, enjoy the work God invites us to be part of, and make a difference in our world.  
    Sign up one of these ways today: 

  • Synod Discernment  -  We are part of a church that is bigger than just this congregation, and that does ministry with us, alongside us, and on our behalf.  As a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we are part of the Central States Synod, which is the regional expression of the church that covers Missouri and Kansas. 
    Our Bishop and Bishop’s Associate have indicated they will retire at the end of their terms in 2025.  During our next Synod Assembly in June 2025, that means we’ll elect a new bishop.  As we plan for this time, the Central States Synod is taking time to consider questions such as:

    • What is God calling the CSS to do to further God’s kingdom?

    • How is God calling the Central States Synod to minister in the coming years?

    • What gifts will our next Bishop need to help us fulfill that ministry?

The Synod’s Discernment Team has scheduled several opportunities for you to join the conversation, recognizing that all our work begins and ends in God’s love and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Learn more about this process, share your thoughts, and RSVP for a Zoom listening session at https://www.css-elca.org/discernment.  Six sessions are scheduled between July 8 and August 25. 

  • Help Us Serve at The Gathering Table  - One of the ministries we share with fellow congregations is The Gathering Table (gatheringtablekc.org).  Through this ministry, we provide meals, worship, pastoral care, and other support to the unhoused and marginally-housed residents of Kansas City on Independence Avenue.  We’ll be serving sack lunches outside the building on Saturday, July 20. 
    If you signed up to bring food, please bring it to worship on Sunday, July 14.  If you can help assemble the lunches on July 19 or hand out the lunches downtown on July 20, please sign up in the fellowship hall or talk with Donna Mason.
