A ribbon cutting and open house will be held Friday, May 20 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the new Northland Service Center for Metro Lutheran Ministry, 1100 N.E. Vivion Road, Kansas City.
Utilized by many Northland churches representing numerous denominations, the center has been located in a small home adjacent to St. James Lutheran Church for more than 30 years. Last year, a successful capital campaign allowed for remodeling a portion of the church.

Programs include food, utility and rent assistance, job skill and readiness training, permanent supportive housing for homeless individuals with disabilities, Saturday hot breakfast programs, minor home repair for low income seniors, personal finance programs and more.
