Sundays at Countryside

Church can be an intimidating place to visit — especially if you don’t know what to expect. We invite you to experience what the gospel means both intellectually and relationally at one of our Sunday worship services. You can engage with others and find places for your whole family to connect. We hope that through visiting with us, you will experience the hope, love and joy that comes from a community of people who love Jesus.

Feel free to call (785-266-7541) or email us us in advance of your first visit. We will be happy to give a tour & share more information with you.

You ARE Welcome Here!

Our church recognizes all children of God and their sacred worth. In a world full of much pain & anguish, we want everyone to know a place that is loving, welcoming and affirming. We are in mission and ministry to the gospel of Jesus Christ to "make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."
