Documentary sheds light on religion in Kansas City

By Nick Moreno

A new documentary is part of a project launched through the Corporation of Public Broadcasting that’s exploring the effects of religion on Kansas City area culture.
Titled “Beyond Belief: Three Stories of Faith in Action,” the documentary premiered on June 23 on KCPT (Channel 19). Directed, written and produced by Steve Mencher, the film follows three local stories.
“Beyond Belief: Three Stories of Faith in Action” examines Central Methodist Church in Kansas City, Mo.’s Brookside neighborhood, which has become the place of worship for many African refugees; and Grandview Park Presbyterian Church in Kansas City, Kan., where Sunday services are offered in Spanish and English simultaneously. It also follows a civil rights tour through the South attended by students of Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy in Overland Park, Kan.; and African American students from University Academy in Kansas City, Mo.
Grandview Park Pastor Rick Behrens began holding bilingual Sunday services as a way to be welcoming neighborhood residents. Founded in 1889, the church is located on Wilson Boulevard near 18th Street and Central Avenue, where a large Spanish-speaking community resides. Many native Spanish-speakers have found a home within the established congregation.
Grandview Park also is the home to La Paz House – a hangout for children from 4 to 6 p.m. on schooldays. It’s possible through the help of Lee Trotter, a member of the congregation who has taken it upon himself to help with La Paz House, going so far as to buy a house two doors away from the church.
The documentary will air repeatedly on KCPT. It’s also available to watch online on KCPT’s YouTube channel at http://www.kcpt.org/programs/local-programs/beyond-belief/.
