Welcome New Pastor

Reverend Moose (Musonda) Ngolwe was born in Zambia, Southern Africa. He grew up in a faith-oriented family where his praying grandmother guided him to seek a life of righteousness, integrity, and self- discipline. Moose accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the tender age of six (6) and was baptized in the United Methodist Church. He was very active in his home church as a youth and young adult.

Moose was educated at Namwianga Christian Mission School. He attended the University of Zambia, majoring in Social Counseling, before joining the United States Aid for International Development (USAID) in January 2003- 2015. Moose holds an Associate of Science (AS) Degree in Counselling and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Degree in Pastoral Ministry from Kansas Christian College (KCC). He is currently in his third year of a Master of Divinity (MDiv) Degree at Saint Paul School of Theology, Leawood, Kansas.

Here in the US, Moose has served in the leadership team in 2016, at East Shore United Methodist Church, Euclid, Ohio. Moose took on the ministry of driving the church bus serving the senior citizens of the church and community. Moose served in the leadership team at Red Bridge United Methodist Church, Kansas City, Missouri as an Associate for Hospitality from 2017 until he was appointed Pastor of Grandview United Methodist Church, Grandview, Missouri, in 2021.

Reverend Moose and his wife Ms. Penelope (Penny) have been married for 21 years and have two children, daughter Jennipher 17, and son Paul 15. Both Jennipher and Paul are confirmed and baptized members of the United Methodist Church.

Sunday's Message

Sunday, July 14
Message By: Pastor Moose
SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 1:3-14
MESSAGE TITLE: Treasures, He provides us
Liturgist: Sharon Humes

Weekly Devotion

As follows of Jesus Christ, we have come to understand the wonderful grace we have received in our adoption by God. As Paul writes to the Ephesians, he speaks of praise to the Father, and of how we've been blessed in the heavenly realms and of the riches of a grace lavished on us. And just as a child has nothing to do with their adoption and may only learns of it much later, our spiritual adoption was done for us very early. In fact, it is so early that it predates us, or anyone else! We were picked out by God before the creation of the world!! What an amazing gift from an amazing and loving
God. Glory to God. Amen.

We invite all members of our congregation to volunteer and offer their unique gifts, whether it be a musical talent, a testimony of God's grace in your life, or a demonstration of the Holy Spirit's work within you. This is a chance for us to come together as a community and celebrate the diversity of gifts that God has bestowed upon us.

The Men's Wednesday Breakfast is where men come together to pray for each other, and our loved ones, lifting their needs/desires up to our Heavenly Father and building relationships with each other, bearing one another's burdens.

We are blessed to have Son-shine Pre-School. We have a committed director, dedicated teachers, and helpers. Our goal is to have 40 children each semester.

About a month ago we had 21 registered. We asked for prayer.

Ask God to bless the children already signed up. Next, give thanks to God for all the children he will lead our way. Also, help us get out the word to all families in our area.

If you have any questions or potential students, please reach out to Glenda at 1-660-563-2429.
GOOD of today...We have increased to 32 students.

Keep praying...keep thanking God…keep reaching out. There is still time to reach our goal.

Youth and Children

We give thanks to God for the increase of children on Sunday mornings. Katie and her helpers do a great job. However, ages can range from 2-12. So, Katie is looking for added volunteers so we can provide classes that better fit the ages of the children. If you are willing to help, any number of Sundays, please contact Katie ASAP.
