Green Life Church meets outdoors, weather permitting, and at existing venues to maintain a low-carbon footprint.  Comfortable, casual attire is encouraged. We practice "open communion". Everyone who desires to participate is welcome to do so. We offer organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free communion elements. We are inter-generational and provide Bible activities to engage young children during worship.


From October through April, we offer Casual Worship and Spiritual Discussion on Sundays at various indoor locations. (See Current Worship Schedule page for times and locations.)


During May through September, we offer Outdoor Worship and Spiritual Discussion on  Sundays at 10 a.m. at Waterfall Park (behind Bass Pro), 4501 Bass Pro Road, Independence, Missouri 64055.  In case of inclement weather during May – September, we meet at Panera Bread, 18800 E US Hwy 40, Independence, Missouri 64055.


Green Life Church offers outreach programs throughout the Kansas City Metro area. In 2017 we began offering weekly prayer and communion and held a back-to-school event with free school supplies at Waterfall Park in Independence, Missouri. We also began teaching health and wellness classes at Terra Health & Wellness Market, 19800 E. Jackson Drive, Independence, MO.


In 2018 we added an Earth Day Prayers and Praise event; the Green Pastures, Still Waters exhibit inspired by Psalm 23; the Reverse Climate Change with a Plant-Rich Diet class;  the Life Hacks from the Book of Proverbs class; and the Simple Steps to De-Stress class.  Also available is the Understanding the Bible class.  On September 8 we held Rise in Prayer for People & the Planet Vespers. In October we began sponsoring Drawdown: Solutions to Reverse Global Warming workshops to engage people in the top solutions to reverse global warming.
