Resurrection Leawood Sanctuary

Our sanctuary 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. We’d love to share our space with you!

We offer guided tours to visiting groups, scheduled at least one week in advance. Registration is required. Please complete the Visiting Group Request Form to provide us with details of your visit. A Resurrection Tour Ministry leader will contact you to finalize arrangements. We will do our best to accommodate your preferred date/time, but please know that previously scheduled events such as church functions, funerals and weddings will take priority over space availability for tours.

The sanctuary is typically open Monday – Friday, 7 am – 9 pm, for prayer and reflection. If you don’t require a guided tour, you are welcome to visit and enjoy this space at your convenience. Please stop by our Connection Point in the Narthex to pick up a printed brochure that explains the symbolism in the art and architecture of the building.

There may be occasional times when events are happening in the sanctuary, so we ask that you be mindful of disturbing any ongoing activities.

Please Note: There may be occasional times when events (funerals, weddings, conferences, special events, etc.) are happening in the Sanctuary, and we ask that you do not enter the Sanctuary if an event is taking place in there when you arrive. Check our events calendar to find a schedule of events, or contact the reception desk at (913) 897-0120 to verify the Sanctuary’s availability.
