Who we are
We’re a mid-sized church in size, but we are overflowing with a great spirit. We’re located at 63rd & Roe Avenue in Prairie Village, a community just on the other side of the state line from Kansas City, Mo. Children, from pre-schoolers to high schoolers, find Southminster to be a place where they can laugh, play and learn. We have many longtime members – including some among those who founded Southminster six decades ago – who remain active in our community. We have a growing number of other individuals and families who also are finding Southminster to be a place where they can nourish their spirit, spend time with friends and share their unique gifts and talents.
God’s hands in the world
We all come together to care for one another, worship the Lord and serve Him by showing love and concern to those who need it so desperately. Our ministries include supporting homeless families in our community by regularly providing them with safe lodging, ensuring that a community in Mexico has safe, clean drinking water and contributing our time and gifts so that the hungry can have something to eat. .
All are welcome
Southminster Presbyterian Church welcomes and celebrates the human diversity and unity that God gives us in Christ. We welcome individuals of every age, race or ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender identification or expression, ability, sexual orientation, and economic circumstance to participate fully in the life of the church. Southminster is a member congregation of the PC(USA) and is affiliated with More Light Presbyterians.
