COVID-19 Details

At Connection Point Church we take the health and well-being of our congregation, staff, and community very seriously. Our staff team is monitoring local and nationwide coronavirus (COVID-19) updates closely. In addition to our regular efforts to maintain a healthy environment at Connection Point, we have implemented additional measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. You will find those measures and other important information detailed below.

Worship online from home if you:

  • have a temperature greater than 100.4 
  • have any COVID-19 symptoms
  • have tested positive
  • are awaiting test results
  • have been exposed to someone with symptoms or someone who has tested positive or is awaiting test results 

Guidelines & Safety Measures

Our church has seen firsthand how devastating COVID-19 can be, and we want to do all that we can to prevent further harm. This is why as of Sunday, November 1, 2020, we updated our guidelines and measures the church family, staff, and guests are required to follow each time we gather for worship, LifeGroups, and all ministry activities.

Please read this information carefully so we can move forward in ministry as loving neighbors without worrying about being the source of spreading COVID-19. If you have any questions, please email contact@connectionpoint.tv.

Mandatory Church-Wide Guidelines

  • Everyone in attendance is required to wear a mask for the duration of their time on campus. This includes but is not limited to the worship service, LifeGroups, lobby areas, and gatherings in the parking lot.
  • Staff and volunteers will lovingly remind those without a face covering to wear a mask.
  • If someone asks you to wear a mask and you are medically exempt, please lovingly communicate that to them.
  • Those engaged in social interactions should observe appropriate social distancing and avoid physical contact.

Limited Capacity & Distanced Seating

Lee’s Summit Campus
  • We are limiting capacity to 150 people (50% of capacity)
  • Chairs are set up in socially distant sections
  • A staff member is available to assist families and individuals with finding appropriately distanced seating

    Raytown Campus
  • We are limiting capacity to 1,275 people (less than 50% capacity)
  • We have closed off the recently opened seats, meaning alternating pews/rows have been completely blocked off
  • 3 seats (equaling 6 feet) in the middle of each open row have been blocked off to separate attendees from different households
  • Members and attendees are required to sit in an open seat and refrain from sitting in blocked off areas

Health Screenings

  • Health screening questions are posted prominently at all exterior entrances for self-screening for all members and attendees.
  • All children and volunteers working with children have symptom and temperature checks prior to entering the children’s area.
  • All musicians and speakers receive a health screening form via text message every Sunday morning. The form must be completed before they arrive. Any individual with a fever or Covid symptoms will be instructed to remain at home.

Gathering Protocol

According to the Jackson County Health Department, churches are now exempt from requesting approval to gather in groups larger than 50 as long as attendance is under 50% normal capacity.
