Mission Statement

We are a welcoming and inclusive community of faith, seeking to help every person discover God’s transforming love as we proclaim the good news!

COVID-19 Update

In an effort to help flatten the curve and take actions that limit the potential spreading of the disease, the church office will be available to visitors by coming to the west door and ringing the newly installed video doorbell. Our office is normally staffed on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm. Most meetings are still using Zoom or other digital forms of connecting. Church staff is committed to following the advisement of our health professionals and flattening the curve, by participating in social isolation. If you need to get a hold of any of the staff, please call 913-294-2319. All voicemails left here will be forwarded to an email alert system and then checked by staff for a reply.


Thank you for visiting the site of the First Presbyterian Church of Paola. We are a warm congregation with lots to offer. Maybe you are looking for a church home or perhaps perusing the web for a good devotional. Whatever the case, you have come to the right place! Join us as we fellowship and grow together in Christ through hymns, songs from the choir, an inspiring sermon, and more.

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow people at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

We are back.

Every Saturday morning for 40 years the Presbyterian Women have opened their doors to provide items necessary for family living. These items are new or gently used items offered at reasonable prices.
