EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA
This church body is an amalgam of three older Lutheran church bodies, and attempts to present the best of the original Protestant Reformation theology to a world that needs it so badly. Many Johnson County churches graciously supported Kaw Prairie in its early years (most particularly Atonement in Overland Park, Holy Cross in Overland Park, Advent in Olathe, and Resurrection in Prairie Village) and two older ones were benefactors with their assets, helping advance our building project by many years.

Kaw Prairie was also hugely blessed by a gift of land from the Heartland Presbytery, which offered us their 18-acres of interchange property at K7 Highway and Prairie Star Parkway. The gift was made possible by a strong mission and ecumenical commitment from the Presbytery, and the original generosity of members of Village Presbyterian in Prairie Village. The Presbytery also blessed us with the right to negotiate a win-win real estate deal with a neighboring developer, a much more attractive and viable commercial medical district for the City of Lenexa.
