Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

It is in our DNA to join Christ’s mission in the world, and God uses the people of FBCLS to make a difference in Lee’s Summit and beyond. Recent groups from FBCLS have served in many ways and in many places, including church leader training in Cuba and Guatemala, medical missions in Guatemala, and disaster relief and inner city ministries throughout the US. We are privileged to partner with a number of ministries who are doing meaningful work to spread God’s love.


Would you like to explore with others God’s heart for the world? This 15-lesson course examines God’s global purpose. Beginning on August 14th on Sunday evenings from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Journey International church, dive into an amazing time of learning from missionaries as they share their first-hand experiences, knowledge, training, and Biblical application for sharing the Good News around the world.

Guatemala 2019

Since 2012, we’ve been doing medical missions trips to Guatemala. We've been blessed to be able to bless others, providing medical care and basic needs to families. Seeing the Lord work through the volunteers is an incredible sight.

We also financially support the Tabitha Ministry in Guatemala City, a remarkable early childhood education and elementary school for children living in or near the city dump there.

Cuba    2017

We’ve taken church missions trips to Cuba since 2016 and specifically have partnered with the 6th Baptist Church of Santiago, Cuba and their pastor, Joey Hernandez.  We’ve contributed to the construction of their new building as well as supporting them with training trips for their workers and funds they’ve used to help feed hungry families in their neighborhood

Guatemala 2017

We’ve been taking missions trips to Guatemala as a church since 2008. It’s a long-standing commitment.  Our initial years were more general trips with outreach, Vacation Bible Schools, and leadership training in local churches.  

First Serve 

Serve the Kingdom in our community!

FBCLS engages in a variety of service projects throughout the year called First Serve Sunday. These projects provide wonderful opportunities to engage folks in our community as well as providing much-needed services to our neighbors. To learn more about First Serve Sunday, click below.

Mission Houses

When furloughing missionaries return home to the U.S., finding short-term housing can be a major challenge.  Our church is blessed to be able to provide 2 mission residences for missionaries to stay in while they are back in the U.S. and away from their country of service.  

The missionaries stay here rent-free and only pay for the utilities they use.  This ministry is a blessing for them and for our church as well as we get to meet so many missionaries and learn of their work, thus enabling us to pray for them more effectively.
