Outreach Activities


Community Dinner

On the 4th Sunday of each month at 12:00 pm, we come together and break bread as a community. The dinners are held in Fellowship Hall at the church. If you’re a member of the church community, please bring a dish to share when you come to church that morning. And don’t forget to invite your friends and neighbors. If you are a new visitor or just wish to drop in for a meal and fellowship, no need to bring food, just come and SHARE OUR TABLE! Your participation and support are greatly appreciated!


If you have questions, please contact the church office at (913) 631-2280. 


Cross-Lines Community

Cross-Lines provides people in the Kansas City area who are affected by poverty with services and opportunities that encourage self-confidence, meet the needs of today, and provide the tools for future self-sufficiency.  Shawnee United Methodist Church, along with other churches and businesses in the community, teams with Cross-Lines to tackle the problems of poverty in Wyandotte County and the surrounding areas. We provide meals once per month in KCK, with different small church groups taking a turn at serving. We also collect food, clothing, and care package items for the homeless, throughout the year to help Cross-Lines meet the demand for outreach into the community.  



Mentoring and Support

Shawnee United Methodist Church is actively engaged in helping elementary school children with clothes, food, and mentoring young students. We work with a specific School program. 


**Persons participating in this program must have been through our Safe Gatherings training program**
