Sign Up to Attend Worship at Hosanna!

To help us ensure a safe space for worship, please sign up to let us know if you will be attending.  Please read through the "Things to Know" before signing up.

Things to Know about In-Person Worship at Hosanna!

As an expression of love and care for one another, all attending in-person worship agree to abide by the following:

  • Wear a face mask at all times, even when singing, unless exempt according to Clay County health guidelines

  • Maintain 6 feet distance from those not part of their household.  Seating in the sanctuary will be adjusted to facilitate this. 

  • Limiting in-person attendance to 50 people.  Please reserve a space (or multiple spaces for your whole household) if you plan to attend.  If your circumstances change, you will have the option to cancel your reservation.

What will be different?

  • Entry to the building will take place through the front door, where worshipers will be greeted, sanitize their hands, pick up a bulletin, and be seated.  (Although done some public places, we will not be conducting temperature checks for a variety of reasons, including their limited helpfulness in screening for COVID-19.) 

  • Alternatives to using hymnals, passing offering plates, signing attendance pads, and sharing the peace with handshakes will be utilized. 

  • Doors will remain open to minimize commonly touched surfaces. 

  • Holy Communion will be distributed row-by-row at the end of the service, using sanitary methods.  

  • Worshipers will depart after receiving Communion.  

  • We will not serve food or gather in groups in the fellowship hall. 

  • Commonly touched surfaces will be sanitized after the service (and possibly more frequently).

 

When Not to Attend:

  • Out of an abundance of caution, we ask you to remain at home if you may have been near someone who has tested positive with COVID-19 in the past 14 days or if you are experiencing any of these symptoms (even if you don't think they are COVID-19):

    • fever or chills,

    • cough,

    • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing,

    • fatigue,

    • muscle or body aches,

    • headache,

    • new loss of taste or smell,

    • sore throat,

    • congestion or runny nose,

    • nausea or vomiting,

    • diarrhea. 

  • We encourage those for whom COVID-19 might be potentially life-threatening due to other health risks to remain at home and join us for worship online.  We believe God cares for our physical health as much as our spiritual health; there is no guilt in ensuring your wellbeing. 

 

What might change our plans:

  • We anticipate continuing to hold in-person worship unless our Clay County or Kansas City, Missouri health departments advise otherwise or Liberty Public Schools cancel in-person classes. 

  • Our ability to continue holding in-person worship will be based on our ability to abide by this concern for each other.
