Thank you for visiting our website. Please enjoy your time here, click around to learn more about our ministries and what we believe, read through the Frequently Asked Questions below, listen to a message or two from Pastor Ron King, and let us know if you have any further questions.
We invite you to experience Mason Memorial Community Church in person. We understand that searching for a new church can be a little scary, so whether you’ve grown up in church, never been to church, or are coming back to church, our desire is that you feel welcomed and accepted. We look forward to meeting you and your family, knowing that “nothing can separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Visit us and feel the love.
Our worship service might fit more easily into the category of “Blended Worship”. You may hear traditional hymns as well as contemporary sounds in today’s music.
The focus of Worship is to insure that there is an opportunity for all who are present to experience God. With that in mind, we offer a meaningful worship experience that includes a meaningful and contemporary sermon, responsive readings, confession and pardon, prayer and the singing of Christian songs, always stressing the immeasurable grace of God.
We provide an atmosphere where different spiritual needs can be met as we invite the Holy Spirit into the midst of our worship experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does your church offer Holy Communion?
Yes. We traditionally serve the Sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month, as well as other special times of the Christian year, such as our Maundy Thursday worship service during Holy Week. We believe in and practice “open communion,” welcoming all who love Christ, repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another.
What should I wear?
There is no official dress code at our church. Dress comfortably, but respectful of other’s modesty. Many people dress up, and just as many come dressed casually. We’re more concerned with the condition of your spirit than the attire you wear outwardly. Your comfort may be traditional church attire, jeans and sneakers or business casual. Come as you are!
Who attends Mason Memorial Community Church?
Those who attend Mason Memorial Community Church are people like you. Our members and visitors come from every walk of life. We seek to be a multi-generational and multi-cultural community of believers. Some are young, and some are old. There are single and married, with and without children, and grandchildren. The majority of our members are adults, and we are seeking to grow our faith community as God leads us to fulfill God’s vision for our church “to be living examples of Christ’s love active in service to our community”.
Will I be asked to give an offering?
As a guest, you are not expected to make an offering.
If you are a believer from another faith and wish to worship God with your offering when worshiping with us, we certainly don’t wish to prevent your blessings of thanksgiving to God. The opportunity to practice the stewardship of giving in our service is a time of celebration at Mason Memorial Community Church. Our members give as part of their commitment to God and the church, according to 2 Corinthians 9:7-8.
Will I be singled out as a visitor?
You will not be asked to say anything or introduce yourself as a visitor.
We have a general time of greeting prior to our service time when members of our congregation will typically greet you at this time. You will be invited to sign our guest registry so that we may simply have a record of your attendance at our worship service. Our every intention is for you to feel welcomed. We do not want you to do anything that would make you feel uncomfortable.
If I need prayer, will Mason Memorial Community Church pray for me?
Mason Memorial Community Church believes in prayer. We believe that we should as Scripture leads us, “Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication.” If you have a prayer request, there is a prayer card available for you to fill out and turn it in when requested.
If you wish, you may also send prayer requests through the PRAYER button at the bottom of our website, or you may call the church office at 913-321-4105.
Your prayer request will be made known to our Pastor who will offer prayer on your behalf. In addition, your request can be added to our weekly prayer list.
Will I have a chance to meet the Pastor?
Pastor Ron looks forward to greeting visitors and members after each service. He is typically standing at the entry to the sanctuary where you’ll find a warm smile and a strong handshake to greet you.
If you’d like a visit from the pastor, simply note that on our visitor registration form. Pastor Ron will be happy to arrange a time to meet with you as well as speak with those who have questions about the church or the message of the morning.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything regarding how we worship. While the CDC has provided guidelines for gathering spaces throughout our country, we believe we answer a higher authority – God. As people called by God to serve in the world, we also believe that as Christians, our primary responsibilities to each other are outlined in Holy Scripture.
In order to remain faithful to God, we have established 3 criteria for masking.
- **HUMILITY – Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:3-4) I don’t know if I have COVID as it is clear that people can spread the disease before they have symptoms . . .I regard you too highly to want you to get it from me if I have it, but am unaware.
- **KINDNESS – “In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; (Matthew 7:12) I don’t know if the person I am near has a child battling cancer, or is caring for their elderly parent who might be compromised. While I might be fine, they may not . . . I regard you too highly to want you or your loved one to get it from me if I have it, but I am unaware.
- **COMMUNITY – And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, . . . (Galatians 6:9-10) If we want our businesses to stay open and thrive and employees to stay healthy, caring for and protecting each other by wearing a mask keeps a lid on COVID and helps everyone! . . . I regard you too highly to want you or your loved one to get it from me if I have it, but I am unaware.
