HISTORY OF RAYMORE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Born September 14, 1980
Raymore Christian Church was a dream held by Merle Mott while she was still a farm wife in Raymore. Her dream included a senior citizen's facility and a church on land her family owned. She donated the land to the National Benevolent Association with their commitment to build Foxwood Springs Living Center on the site. A corner of the square land was set aside for a church to be founded.
The first unit of the building was constructed and the first worship service held in the sanctuary on February, 1983 with a membership of 200.
By 1986, the congregation held another building fund drive that was successfully completed in May 1987, to construct a third-phase building expansion to meet current and future needs. This included Narthex expansion, elevator installation, office relocation, music rooms and worship center.
In 2008, the sanctuary was refurbished with new carpeting and the refinishing and new covering of the pews.
In 2016, the Narthex was refreshed with new carpet, paint, and comfortable furniture, and a Hearing Loop system was installed in the sanctuary to assist those in our congregation who are hard-of-hearing; please have your audiologist turn on the "T-Coil" in your hearing aid to take full advantage of the Hearing Loop technology.
