Resurrection Leawood Sanctuary

The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection’s new sanctuary and stained glass window will be open for tours celebrating our Grand Opening. Tours will be available during select dates and times from Wednesday, April 19, to Saturday, May 6.

We’re excited to share with you this historic milestone in our congregation’s history as we open our permanent sanctuary. It is designed to be a sacred space, a sermon in architecture, and a tool through which we strive towards our vision of changing lives, renewing churches, and transforming the community.

Guided Tours last approximately 45 minutes and provide a brief history of our church, a description of the symbolism and features of the architecture, a glimpse of the ministries that are vital to who we are as a church, and the story of the Resurrection Window. Reservations are required.

If you’re interested in scheduling a tour after standard tours have finished on May 6, tour times will be available most Monday evenings from 6-9 pm and most Friday afternoons from 12-3 pm, Please contact Yvonne Gentile at yvonne.gentile@cor.org to schedule a tour during these times.
