Reopening Resurrection for On-site Worship

at all Church of the Resurrection locations

COVID-19 continues to impact Kansas City. We've developed protocols intended to provide as safe an environment as possible. We’re counting on you to help keep our community safe! When attending any scheduled event, you agree to consider your own personal circumstances and abide by all applicable church, state and local safety protocols.

What We're Doing

Here are the steps we're taking to try to keep you safe and our facilities clean.

Limiting Capacity

Each service has limited seating capacity to enable safe physical distancing. Limited programming is available for children (varies depending on service and location). Pre-registration is required for children's programs, but not for worship.

Safe Distancing

Please leave at least 6 feet between family units in the Sanctuary and all common areas.

Controlled Entrances/Exits

Before services, please wait in your car until 15 minutes before service time so you can go directly to your seat. At the end of service, please maintain safe distance from others, and exit the building to allow us to clean between services.

Wearing Masks

Masks will be required for all volunteers and attendees ages 3 and up. Acceptable masks include cloth or disposable face coverings that cover the nose and mouth completely. A face shield alone is not sufficient and requires that a mask be worn as well.


The worship space are sanitized each week. Commonly touched areas, such as door handles, are wiped down between services. Hand sanitizer are available inside exterior building doors and at the sanctuary doors.

Limited Amenities

Refreshments are not offered, and food/beverage are not permitted on-site, since consuming them requires the removal of masks. Water fountains are closed. Restrooms are available and sanitized before and after services, with doors propped open where privacy allows.

Contact-Free Greetings

Greeters wave a warm welcome, but do not shake hands while serving. Doors are propped open. We do not distribute bulletins or handouts, and we do not offer a stand and greet time during worship.

Touchless Service

Offering are taken online through PushPay or may be dropped in acrylic offerings boxes near the exit as you leave. Items such as prayer cards and pens are removed from seats. Attendance are entered electronically.

Special Elements

Communion uses pre-packaged elements distributed by masked and gloved ushers. Baptisms are performed at the family's discretion. Kneelers, candle carts and other frequently touched worship fixtures have been removed from the worship space. 

Children & Students

Our nursery, KiDSCOR, and Student Ministries have resumed meeting on-site with limited capacities and additional safety protocols. Pre-registration is required. Learn more about programming protocols here.
