Lazarus’ Table has grown to become “Lazarus’ Ministries” including, in addition to the meals, a Clothing Boutique and a free Sojourner Health Clinic.

Welcome to Grand Avenue Temple!

A Different Church Making a Difference in Downtown Kansas City, MO, with Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors. Sunday service at 10 AM.

Welcome to Grand Avenue Temple! We will feed your body and your soul. We will give you food for your journey—both the outward and the inward. We are a place where “everybody is somebody special reaching out to unite all in God’s love.” As a multi-racial/ethnic/economic congregation, you will be accepted here and you will be loved.

We are the heart and soul, not to mention the home, of Lazarus Ministries. In the Gospel of John, we read how Lazarus was set free from the burial cloths which bound him. Jesus calls Lazarus by name and commands him to come out of the tomb. As Lazarus appears, Jesus says to the crowd “Unbind him and set him free…” You and I are in that crowd and we are doing what Jesus said to do.

Our mission is to follow Jesus, build relationships, penetrate the culture and transform the world. Don’t you want to be a part of that? Read on and find the many ways you can make that happen. Contact us if our web site doesn’t answer your questions or if it makes you yearn for more. We have the living water that satisfies your thirst and it is available to anyone who asks.
