PWUMC has the safety and well-being of our congregation and our community top of mind. With the constantly changing status of information regarding the new coronavirus (COVID-19), the staff at PWUMC continue to monitor the latest news and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and local health departments. On this page, you’ll find all the latest information on PWUMC’s response to COVID-19 and any temporary changes we are implementing. If you have questions, please contact Lori Bogart, director of Administration & HR.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has brought much change to PWUMC, it has not changed our focus of leading people to follow Jesus! Our staff and members are active in many ways in our community and world, and are truly “being the church.” That said, the situation has led to alterations in our use of our building and in gathering. Following is the most up-to-date information on activities at PWUMC. For a quick view of our current policies, please see our COVID-19 Guidelines.
PWUMC has resumed in-person worship, with services held in the Worship Center every Sunday at 9:30 and 11 a.m. Masks are required while all times for people ages 5 and over while in the church building.
Online worship will continue, and we invite all to join us each week. For more information, please visit our Worship Page to see all the ways you can watch from home.
As recommended by the CDC and per the Kansas City mask mandate, masks are required for everyone ages 5 and up at all times while in the church building (effective 8-1-21). This helps keep the most vulnerable people among us safe, including children who have not yet had the opportunity to be vaccinated.
As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to affect people in our community, Platte Woods UMC is committed to providing care and help.
