THE TIME CAPSULE

    

On February 23, 1969, as part of the centennial celebration of Lenexa United Methodist Church, a time capsule was placed in the cornerstone of the building addition that was under construction at the time. Fifty years later, on June 30, 2019, the time capsule was opened as part of the 150th Anniversary celebration of the church.  The time capsule contained many items from the church, as well as from the Lenexa community as a whole. 

The highlight of the time capsule was the series of letters written to today’s congregation.  There are letters from the pastor, the district superintendent, the lay leader, a member of the Centennial Steering Committee, missionaries, and the teacher and members of the 5th-& 6th-grade girls’ Sunday school class.  Those letters are below (tap left and right arrow keys to scroll through letters).
