View from the Hill - Dr. Robert Lee Hill

Bob Hill at Hawk's Bill Crag

Greetings

Community Christian Church is a church of service and celebration, a church in the heart of the city, which takes the welfare of the city to heart! We are located on the Country Club Plaza, in a Frank Lloyd Wright designed sanctuary building, in the very heart of America's heartland. [less]

We honor the gifts our members contribute in abundance to an ever-expanding ministry of joyful worship, loving outreach, welcoming fellowship, affirming prayer, vibrant Bible study, and sensitive caring for one another. And the gifts are wonderful to see and experience: diversity, unity, creativity, hope, encouragement, commitment, innovation, laughter, cooperation, tolerance, and mutual affection!!

Whether you are a seeker, a searcher, a person of mature faith or a person beginning on your spiritual journey, may this website assist and empower you along your way.

May your life be full of adventures which strengthen you and encounters which give you joy each and every day. I urge you to visit and join with us at Community Christian Church, 4601 Main Street, in Kansas City, Missouri.
