Foundry Church loves to show up and surprise someone with Serve Our City. Each fall, we get to paint, build, fix, landscape, and do so much more for someone who needs help. Dozens of volunteers roll up their sleeves to help someone in our community maintain or improve their home. You can serve by lending a hand. You can serve by sharing your construction expertise. You can serve by helping organize the project.

What If churches in Kansas City knew each other? What if churches in KC served the needs of the community together? What if the churches in KC partied together occasionally? That is the heart of “What if” - a consortium of churches who take three weeks each year and sing off the same sheet of music. In 2009, eleven churches participated in What If. Churches welcomed pastors from other churches to preach. Churches served the urban core with a turnout of over 1700 people on a one-day serving blitz, and thousands came together for a night of worship. In 2015, more than 30 churches joined the What If cause. Foundry Church is the home office for What If. You can serve by leading a serve day project. You can serve by donating construction and landscape materials. You can serve in organizing this city-wide venture. For more information, click HERE.
