This website has been established to help us stay connected during this time.
As circumstances lead us to greater physical distance, we choose to lead to greater emotional connection. We believe that that having the love and support of one another and the nearness of our God is what lowers anxiety and makes tough situations easier to navigate. We're in this together.
WHAT'S ON THIS SITE:
Gather here to join our worship with video each Wednesday, Sunday, and for other occasions.
A place to find resources to inspire you and keep you active, mentally healthy, and engaged during this time.
Join our daily Bible story readings, Wednesday Bible study, and find other faith-deepening activities.
Find opportunities to help others during the pandemic.
Find facts and links about COVID-19 here, as well as Hosanna's plan to keep people safe and connected.
Updated Friday, August 7:
Join us for worship each Sunday at 9:30. We invite you to begin the worship at 9:30 so that we can pray, praise God, hear God's word, and be renewed for the week ahead all together. If you can't make it at 9:30, you can join in anytime after that.
Drive-through Communion will be offered in the church parking lot each Sunday, 10:45-11:15. Communion has been prepared using careful sanitation practices, and Pastor Mike will bring it to your car with clean hands and wearing a facemask.

We live our faith not just in words, but in actions. Our service page has been updated with additional opportunities, including a sign-up to send Hosannagrams, ways to donate to Metro Lutheran Ministry's Christmas Store, how to support those out of work by volunteering at Harvesters Food Bank, along with many existing opportunities already listed.
We've updated the resource page about COVID-19 with resources about the impact face masks make, a tool for assessing risk in group settings, and other details from local and national health agencies.
Participants in our Dialogues on Race have been sharing resources to learn more about racism and get connected with local events and organizations. A list has been added to our Dialogues pages.
Wednesday Evening Prayer is available for you to join here.
We are taking a break from our drive-in services during the heat through at least August 23.
This is a tough time to be alone. We're here for you.
During this time of avoiding public places, being home so much can get overwhelming and lonely. If you would like to connect with Pastor Mike, please call the church office at 816-781-7991 (leave a message if no one answers) or send him an e-mail at email@example.com.
Please keep up your regular financial contributions.
We have to be realistic. With less people venturing out, church offerings are going to be less. We still have to pay the mortgage, keep up utilities, pay our staff, and fund the resources we're dedicating to connection during the pandemic. If your job is still secure, please keep up your regular contributions. You can mail a check to the church office at anytime, give online using a bank account, credit card, or debit card through our giving page.
