Gathering at the River

We know that the emergence of COVID has changed some of the ways we gather. As a leadership team, we continue to prayerfully seek the direction of the Holy Spirit in response to any changes in recommendations provided by our local government officials or community leaders regarding the health and safety of our family and community. 

We commit to continue to take cleaning and sanitization of our building surfaces seriously, and to provide hand sanitizing stations throughout the building. We encourage everyone who attends services in our building to practice safe healthy hygiene, such as coughing into an elbow or sleeve, washing hands frequently, respecting personal distance from others as needed.

Finally, we ask that anyone experiencing illness, particularly symptoms of COVID-19 or those who have knowingly been exposed to COVID-19 in the last 14 days, please remain home and watch the livestream of our services. If you do develop COVID-19 symptoms within two days of attending in-person services, please contact the church office at 816-356-7400 or by email to

Thank you for your continued cooperation and grace in helping us to continue gathering in person safely.
