The Reopening Committee has been meeting monthly to review and consider current conditions within our community. This has included guidance and recommendations from the Disciples of Christ regional and national offices, CDC information, and information from sources related to churches, including the risks and science of congregational singing. Unfortunately, the numbers in Johnson County and the Kansas City area have been high, often in the red zone.
Now that we have Rick and René Jensen as our interim pastors we have drafted some specific plans that we are sharing with you along with this survey. This plan will be reviewed and modified as deemed appropriate based on medical, scientific, and public health recommendations as well as current community conditions and trends.
Currently the numbers look like they may be stabilizing somewhat but are still high and it is still not safe to return to in-person worship in the building. However, we think it is time to start planning for a return to in-person worship. It should be noted that some form of live-streamed or recorded worship will continue after we return to in-person worship.
We are asking you to please complete the survey to guide us in our re-opening plans.
