A community of realpeople, rooted in the common journey of following Jesus’ way of love,
seeking to live out a relevant faith that meaningfully connects with our lives, and the lives of others.
The SMM Connection Team has a goal of helping members get to know each other better. One of the ways is this feature, calledFirst Impressions: Connection Stories from St. Mary Magdalene.
Each month or so the Connection Team will interview different members of the congregation (new and veterans) to hear their impressions of our church. Today we meet Michael McMahon.
What brought Michael McMahon to St. Mary Mag? His father lived close by and he wandered into our house to basically check it out. Once inside, the music as he said “made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck” and along with the pastor, it was “a very inviting fellowship.” He had been to different churches throughout his life. He has had many offers to move to different areas of the U.S. However, he takes care of his mother and he has found a closeness with this community. Within this last year, Michael has volunteered to help at St. Mary's kitchen and because of his past experience in catering, he is now chef in charge of the kitchen on a weekly basis. Michael is serves as one of our ushers. Not only has God brought us into Michael's life, He has also brought Michael into ours.
We are a vibrant, life-giving community that shares amazing worship, engaging fellowship and meaningful service.
We serve the growing suburban communities south of Kansas City, and attract many from the larger Kansas City metro region.
We invite you to join us on an exciting journey of discovery as we learn to worship, serve and follow Jesus in our daily lives.
