Resurrection Foundation

Helping you leave a legacy, through planned giving, in support of the mission and ministries of Church of the Resurrection.

What is the Resurrection Foundation?

The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection Foundation, a Kansas nonprofit corporation, was established in 2002 to identify and develop opportunities for planned giving. Our purpose is to endow and support the lasting impact of the church’s ministry and mission by encouraging members to remember Church of the Resurrection in their planned giving.

A message about planned giving from our Senior Pastor:

Resurrection Foundation Day Trip to WWI Museum and Resurrection Downtown

We are excited to share an adventure of discovering the impact of generational legacy through service and sacrifice as we visit the National World War I Museum for a private tour. We will then make our way to our Resurrection Downtown Location to meet the staff and tour the building. This beautiful Resurrection congregation offers life-changing ministry in the heart of the city. Over a shared boxed lunch we will learn about the incredible ministry of Thelma’s Kitchen and Reconciliation Services.

Your $15 cost covers the boxed lunch from Thelma’s Kitchen with a portion of your cost used to provide meals to the homeless and those in need. For an additional $15, there is the option to ride in a chartered bus roundtrip (seats are limited).
