Where do you gather?
We gather in the Screenland Armour Theatre in North Kansas City.
406 Armour Road North Kansas City, Mo 64116
When do you gather?
- Sunday mornings at 10:00am for corporate worship through preaching of the Word, singing of songs, and communion. (PreK-2nd ministry is provided.)
- Throughout the week in homes for Community Groups.
What should I wear?
Come as you are. This means spiritually and physically. You don't need a new wardrobe for church here. Most of us wear jeans, some wear slacks and we are good with that too! We want you to be who you are. Our pastors usually wear jeans and button down shirts.
Should I bring anything?
If you own a Bible, then we would always suggest bringing it because we will use it every time we gather. If you do not own a Bible, we'd love to give you one when you are here! Also, you could bring a writing utensil and paper if you like to take notes.
What is your music like?
We are modernly acoustic and folk driven in our music. There is usually around 25-30 minutes of new and old songs and hymns with prayer and scripture weaved in through the service. We make sure that all the lyrics we sing and pray are biblically accurate, God glorifying, and gospel-saturated.
What do you talk about?
We have two goals in our corporate worship gatherings: 1. To give glory to Jesus. 2. For you to love Jesus more when you leave us than when you joined us.
Our pastors usually preach for about 40-45 minutes. Our pastors will typically preach through a book of the Bible over several weeks or months so that we can understand the entire book and it's applications in context. We believe in repetitively preaching the gospel to ourselves. You will hear the gospel multiple times through the worship gathering. The gospel message is that God sent his one and only son, Jesus, to die in our place in order to make a way for us back to Himself. We simply open up the Bible, then read and study what it says. You can always trust that we will reveal instructions and lessons according to God's Word.
Am I expected to give money?
We do not expect our visitors to give money at our gatherings. Our Emmaus church members give regularly as an act of praising God for who He is and what He has done. We believe that our generosity in giving is a part of worship. We celebrate the opportunity to give back to God and what He has so generously given to us by giving through an offering box at our connect table or by giving online. Giving is an act of worship as we thank God for what he has given us and trust him by giving back to him.
Who is Emmaus affiliated with?
Emmaus believes that partnership with other churches allows us to be a part of more gospel-work both locally and globally. Emmaus has chosen to partner with other churches through 2 organizations:
- Southern Baptist Convention By partnering through with the Southern Baptist Convention, we are able to join 45,000 other churches in giving and supporting the training of pastors and missionaries through 6 seminaries, including Kansas City's very own Midwestern Seminary; supporting the International Mission Board as they partner with churches to send limitless missionaries and mission teams into the nations with the gospel; supporting the North American Mission Board and the SendNetwork which partner to plant over 1,000 churches each year in North America; as well as supporting SendRelief and DisasterRelief ministries.
- Acts 29 Through our partnership with Acts 29, Emmaus has the opportunity to join over 600 other churches that are aligned by theological clarity, cultural engagement, and missional innovation. Acts 29 is a family of church planting churches that exists to encourage, resource, facilitate, support, and equip churches to plant churches that will plant church-planting churches.
