Bessie's House

Bessie's House
611 Brighton Avenue - Kansas City, MO 64124

Bessie's House is a remodeled early 20th century home next door to one of our other ministry partners, Children’s Memorial Lutheran Church. It serves as a ministry house where those in need in northeast KC are welcome. Many members of Atonement have been fully involved with ministry projects, construction projects, as well as helping to develop a corporate identity as a Missouri non-profit corporation. Bessie’s House holds weekly Bible Studies, Alpha, and AA groups while also welcoming an increasing number of homeless and area impoverished into its warmth to receive assistance with clothing, laundry, food, transportation, showers, legal, tax, and referral for substance abuse. English and Spanish Bibles are handed out while offering pastries, hot coffee/cocoa, hats, gloves and fellowship. Many volunteer opportunities continue as we respond to God's call.
