Upcoming Events


Beginning the week of February 14th, 2021
Keystone is offering confirmation classes to students in the 6th – 12th grade who have not had the opportunity to participate in the past. A confirmation class has the potential to be one of the most significant events in a person’s life. Confirmation seeks to give the participant a systematic overview of the faith – our identity, our history and heritage, our practices, and our beliefs. This will include both our heritage and practices as a Christian community and as a United Methodist Family, as well as our basic beliefs and commitments. In addition, the participants will learn what it means to live a Christian life and be involved in the mission of the church in the world. Some faith traditions base the response of faith on emotion and feeling and emphasize altar calls. Those that practice confirmation base the response of faith more on an informed decision.

We are excited to be offering this class to students. This is an exciting time in a student’s life. The plan is to begin the week of February 14th. Once we determine the participants a day of the week will be established. This 8-week class will be led by Pastor Linda and Rosie Beuthien.

Please click here to sign up a participant or if you would like to be a sponsor/mentor to the youth going through confirmation this year (being a sponsor/mentor is the last questions).

Prayer Walk, Thursday Mornings, 7:30 am

Keystone is doing an outdoor prayer walk on Thursday mornings!

If you are wanting to pray and feel a little closer to church, you are encouraged to stop by. This will be outdoors, masks required. There will be an opening prayer and then you are on your own prayer time. You may walk around the church, the community, pray on the steps, etc. It is a time devoted to prayer, anyway that it comfortable to you. 30 minutes is dedicated to this, however, if you only have 10 minutes, that’s ok!

Coronavirus, COVID19 response….

Update, May 2020

->Love each other like the members of your family.<-

->Romans 12:10a<-

Dear Keystone and Revolution communities —

As we enter into May and as some restrictions around social distancing are being eased, Pastor Linda and I want to bring you up-to-date on where we currently stand on in-person worship. In the interest of maintaining the health of our communities, as well as modeling a slow and intentional return to the “next normal,” we are extending our online-only worship experiences through the month of May. As the end of May approaches, we will evaluate a number of factors, including where the overall health of the Kansas City area stands, and determine what next steps we are called to make.

You may recall that John Wesley lived by three general rules, the first of which was “Do No Harm.” As much as each of us longs to be together in worship, we also long to keep one another (and others in our circles) healthy and safe. Please continue to stay in touch with one another and to support each other through prayers, notes, texts, emails, cards and the other creative ways that so many of you have found to maintain connection.

May Grace and Peace be with you now and always.

Pastor Steve and Pastor Linda

March 2020

We will be closed for service and to outside groups effective until further notice.
This was not an easy decision, and it is one that has been reached through prayer and discussion with many, and with the leadership and approval of the Church Council. We are still determining what that process will look like, and how best we can share meaningful worship experiences with you. Please be patient, as I am sure there will be hiccups along the way. Please also keep your eye out for an email from the church, and on the Facebook page (fb.com/KeystoneChurchWaldo) for links to Sunday morning’s worship.

Here is a prayer that has been requested ….

Prayer for a Pandemic
By Cameron Bellm

May we who are merely inconvenienced
Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors
Remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
Remember those that have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
Remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country,
let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.

Culinary Skills Training Classes – postponed until further notice

SAVE THE DATE ~ Sooner Than Later Spring 2020 Volunteer Meeting at Gillis Admin.,  Tuesday, February 4, 6 pm. The mission of this class is to work with YOUTH in our COMMUNITY so that they may be
