Greetings!

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to engage with us in our annual Rock The City Week, a church-wide outreach initiative where we intentionally show the love of Jesus in Kansas City by mobilizing our efforts through service.

We partner with different organizations, providing them with volunteers to help support their missions. This year our partners include:

  • Fox Town West Neighborhood Association
  • East Meyer Cluster Organization
  • Harvesters Community Food Network
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Women’s Rescue Center
  • Metro Police Station
  • Ruby Jean’s Juicery
  • Leon’s Thriftway

Throughout this week, hundreds of people in our congregation are afforded the chance to impact the urban core of Kansas City by generously giving of their time and resources. As we come together, not only are we loving on our city, but fellowship and community happens among us!

Rock The City Week is such a big deal at City of Truth because it allows us to live out the values that guide our church culture. We refer to these as our KEYS TO THE CITY:

  • People matter to us because people matter to God!We value outreach.
  • Everybody is somebody!We value honor.
  • We are better together!We value fellowship & community.
  • Giving is who we are!We value generosity.
  • If we do it, we do it big!We value faith & excellence.

Here’s how to get involved! Below, you will find a schedule of all the outreach opportunities available during Rock The City Week, along with a brief description of each, the time commitment and the location. We invite your church to plug in with us wherever you choose.

Rock The City Week 2018

We will also have a link available online for individuals to sign up. However, until the link is live, please email any questions specific to outreach opportunities to outreach@thecitykc.com. Our leaders, Tina Downey and Carolyn McGlothen, are prepared to promptly respond with the information you need.

In addition to the opportunity to volunteer with these organizations around the city, we are also currently hosting a school supply drive through August 19th. As you may know, many teachers actually purchase supplies out of pocket for their students throughout the school year. Consequently, this year, we have decided to bless the educators of Kansas City with school supplies.

Below, you will find a list of school supplies we are collecting for elementary, middle and high school educators. Please join us in collecting school supply donations for teachers and their classrooms this year.

School Supply List

We plan to unitedly donate these supplies to educators on the Saturday during Rock The City Week. (Details can be found on the attached schedule.)

Lastly, during this week, we encourage participants to purchase t-shirts or tanks to wear any time they are serving in Kansas City throughout Rock The City Week. Attached, you will find a picture of the t-shirt & tank available for purchase.

We are taking pre-orders until July 31st and each item (t-shirt or tank) is currently priced at $15. We have several colors available including red, blue, black, pink, purple, and yellow. If interested in purchasing shirts, please review and complete the pre-order form attached and email it to finance@thecitykc.com. Afterwards, you will receive an email response with details regarding payment.

If you have any further related questions, please feel free to reply to this email. We excitedly look forward to serving alongside you in August!
