It’s a vital part of family life for us to serve others in our local church family and our neighboring communities. We’ll keep you up-to-date on the latest opportunities and how to get connected here on our Service Opportunities Page.
Raytown Summer Lunch Ministry (RSLM) is a group of churches seeking to share the love of Jesus by providing healthy sack lunches and milk to children who would go without lunch during the summer. 


The RSLM runs this 6-week program from July 9th though August 10th to prepare, pack and deliver lunches to over 600 Raytown children. Our community has been richly blessed by this ministry and we would like to invite you to join our group of volunteers this summer and share the love of Jesus in this way.  Please contact me with any questions, or if you would like to volunteer.
Thank you,
Cayla Chavez
River RSLM Coordinator
