The Prairie Center Community

Our local church (Church of God of Prophecy) has been a part of the Olathe community for over 80 years.

Organized as an in-home Sunday School, the church grew and eventually “upgraded” to the rented storefront on the corner of Mahaffie and Loula St. Not long after that, this small but missions-minded church purchased its first building on Harrison St., where it continued to deepen its connection to the community and raise generations of future teachers, preachers, evangelists, missionaries, deacons and ministry volunteers.

In the early seventies, a newer, larger facility was built on Stevenson St. not far from Olathe High School and the ministry continued to grow. As a result, we built our current facility (pictured) in 1997, including Prairie Center Christian Childcare, our church’s daycare facility.

In our continuing efforts to share the good news of Jesus Christ and provide a positive Christian contribution to our community, we recognize that the faithful and loving sacrifices and service of countless people throughout our history have allowed us to progress to our current level of ministry. Those of us who are the beneficiaries of such wonderful examples pray that the testimony of God’s faithfulness may continue to be passed down to future generations through us as we continue to love and serve Christ and the people of Olathe and surrounding communities.
