For this third time in nine years a church has given its property and facilities to New City Church, Shawnee, Kan.

In February Matt Miller, campus pastor of New City Church Shawnee, was connected with Shawnee Boulevard Christian Church, Kansas City, Kan.

“Over the following months we had a handful of conversations about the future of their ministry,” Miller said.

On Sunday, June 21, Shawnee Boulevard Christian Church voted unanimously to give their debt-free property and assets to New City Church.

“I’m amazed,” Miller wrote on Facebook. “This is the third time in nine years that an existing church has gifted their legacy to New City. I’m grateful.

“This new facility will not become a new campus but rather a new home for our current New City Merriam church.” It will now be known as New City Church KCK. Ray Peoples is campus pastor.

New City Merriam has been meeting at Crestview Elementary School.

New City Church also has campuses in Edgerton, Kan., and Raytown, Mo.
