Saint Paul A.M.E. Church, Olathe, Kansas Is For Sale
If you are interested in this property, please call Paul Sims @
October 6, 2014 St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church, 400 W. Spruce
Street, Olathe, Kansas held a Church Conference to discuss and make a decision
about the future of the church. By a unanimous vote of the membership, St. Paul
decided to close its doors.
Some of the reasons include, but are not limited to, a dwindling membership
and the inability to pay current financial obligations. St. Paul stood as the
only A.M.E. Church in Johnson County, the State of Kansas.
Please keep the former members of St. Paul in your prayers as they seek
another place to worship.
From One Of Our Readers In Cyberspace!
Thank you for being so diligent in keeping the Fifth Episcopal
District so informed. It means so much to be able to obtain inspiring,
informational and accurate data about our Zion at just the click of the
mouse. May God continue bless you and your entire staff for your efforts.
Thank you Celia for your words of encouragement! When I started building
Websites over twelve years ago, there were many people who could not see the
importance of having an Online presence. I learned how to build and maintain
Websites in order to reach beyone the walls of the local church into the
global community. It hasn't been easy and many times I have considered
giving up. I want you to know that people like you give me a reason to
continue. Once again, thank you Celia!
Presiding Elder Donna F. Roberson will be retiring and celebration over
35 years of ministry and turning 75 years young and we want you to be part
of this new chapter in her life!

Rebuilding The Wall Brick By Brick
To Our Christian Friends:
We, the members of Mariah Walker AME Church are pleading for your prayers
and support as we are preparing to rebuild the wall of our church. As you
may know, we have not been able to worship at Mariah Walker due to this
damage. Mariah Walker has been our home for over 50 years and we want it to
be open another 50 years. Our goal is to raise $10,000.00 by the end of June
2014 with God’s help. We are workers together with him.
We would be grateful for any donations as we prepare to return home with
your help. Our situation should not change our praise and our praise can
certainly change our situation.
“Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will
take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord.” Haggai 1:8
