Phased restart plan

We hope you are as excited as us to soon meet together again in person! This has been a tough season on all of us. I know that I am ready to return to some sense of normalcy. While some things are probably not going to return to the way they were pre-COVID-19 for quite awhile (if ever), there are other things we can do to work back to a familiar routine.

On this page you will find the plan our Church Board and I have put together for us to begin meeting again. On Tuesday, May 5th, I met with our KS Church of the Nazarene District Superintendent Jim Bond along with almost 60 other pastors in our denomination. It is the recommendation of our DS, and our District Advisory Board (which oversees the entire district of KS), to follow our state and county guidelines as much as possible. That same day, I met with our church board to put together the plan we are presenting to you.

Our plan is based upon those recommendations and tailored for our local congregation. It is a phased reopening plan, meaning we will gradually open and add Sunday School, small groups, children’s and teens’ activities, and our Sunday morning service.

Please be aware that the dates in the plan are subject to change. We must be flexible and willing to accommodate as circumstances dictate from our state and county officials. 

As always, I am available if you have any questions or concerns. You can EMAIL or call me (316-283-4270).

Pastor J. Jay Hawes
