Director of Grounds: Steve Foutch

The Director of Grounds maintains all grounds areas belonging to the congregation, plus the maintenance garage, both inside and outside. He transacts the business of the congregation assigned to him by the Board of Directors and leads a committee assisting him in maintaining and improving the grounds.

-----  HELP NEEDED  -----

Right now the Grounds committee is in need of volunteers to help with the following list of items for the coming year:

  • Routine maintenance on the lawn equipment
  • Repairs on the on the lawn equipment
  • Lawn Crew Chief
  • We are in search of a good used air compressor

To volunteer, please contact D.J. Dammann, Director of Grounds at or 913-710-3666.

By the way, our gardening volunteers need a lot more help with pulling weeds, pruning, and trimming.  The next time you are at the church, please consider walking out to one of the flower beds or playground and pulling weeds for a few minutes.  A good time to do this might be before or after a Church meeting or function or when picking up or dropping off for Weekday School.
